The Aldrich Material-Specific FT-IR Library collection represents a wide variety of the most common chemicals in The Aldrich Handbook of Fine Chemicals
, divided by similar functional groups. These spectra were assembled from the Aldrich Collections of FT-IR Spectra Editions I or II, and the data has been carefully examined and processed by Thermo Fisher Scientific.
About Spectral Libraries:
- Contains 1,200 spectra
- Data format: High Resolution (HR)
- Spectral library searching has long been an extraordinarily valuable tool in the analytical chemist's toolbox. Our extensive series of spectral libraries includes information specific to application, industry or spectral technique.
- Spectral library searching based on digital matching of spectral signatures is a very effective way of performing qualitative identification of compounds. Because FT-IR and Raman spectroscopic signatures are based on molecular functional groups, even if the exact compound is not present in the libraries, the list of matching compounds from a spectral library search can often lead to identification — or at least classification — of the material.
- Thermo Scientific libraries span applications for Hazmat, Forensics, Food, Polymers and Organic Chemistry.
