This library consists of spectra of commonly found commercial products and white powders, including 165 spectra of commercially available white powders (e.g., baking soda, flour, Vitamin C) and 304 spectra of other products available on the market. A more complete identification, which includes chemical information, requires using this collection in combination with other libraries containing solvents, surfactants, polymers, inorganic materials, synthetic fibers, oils and other materials.
  • Allows unknown materials to be identified by their commercial names
  • Data Format: High Resolution (HR) and Deresolved
About Spectral Libraries:
  • 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&emdash;or at least classification&emdash;of the material.
  • Thermo Scientific libraries span applications for Hazmat, Forensics, Food, Polymers and Organic Chemistry.
