Infrared spectroscopy is used widely in both research and industry as a simple and rapid technique for measurement and quality control in both organic and inorganic analysis.

In contrast to the relatively few absorption peaks observed in UV-VIS region for most compounds, the infrared spectrum provides a rich array of absorption bands. FTIR Testing is widely used and has diverse applications. 

With the developments in interferometer designs and electronics  FT-IR spectroscopy has emerged as a technique that in a  true  sense provides  a fingerprint of materials in a matter of seconds.

Due to all of its features, the FTIR laboratory analysis has now become a go-to method for proper chemical compound identification. That is why you should learn about its functioning and see whether it can be useful for your analysis purpose or not. 

What Is FTIR Testing?

FTIR stands for Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy. It is an uncomplicated way in which you can understand different products and materials through data interpretation, analytical sample screens, and profiles.

In simple terms, we can also state that FTIR testing is a method of chemical compounds’ identification that are present in pharmaceutical products, paints, coatings, consumer products, food items, polymers, etc. 

As stated earlier, FTIR laboratory analysis is done for both organic and inorganic samples that need a quantitative as well as a qualitative examination. Let’s now move on to the working of FTIR tools. 

How Is FTIR Done?

In Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, an infrared absorption spectrum is created to recognize all the molecule’s present chemical bonds. Here, a profile of the taken sample is generated.

This distinctive molecular footprint further assists in screening and scanning the samples to seek out a number of elements in them. Therefore, FTIR equipment can be used to characterize covalent bonds and functional groups’ information. 

In short, the instrument here forms an infrared absorption spectrum to find out crucial details about the given sample’s molecular structure. There are several other molecular spectroscopy techniques that can be utilized along with FTIR testing to get additional data about the molecules.
