FTIR Academy Showcase

Here you can find everything FTIR, from the most basic (what do “FT” and “IR” mean?) to applications using hyphenated techniques, like TGA-IR. Along the way, you can find information on sample preparation for transmission experiments, the power of FTIR Microscopy and charts relating chemical structure to the infrared spectrum. Come back often, as this content is being updated continually.
