What will you learn on this course?
This course covers all the practical theory about Fourier Transform InfraRed spectroscopy. It will review the EM spectrum focussing on the IR region.
It will detail the characteristics absorption spectra of various compounds such as alkanes, alkynes, alcohols, esters, ethers, and will provide examples in the form of exercises for IR interpretation.
The course will review the different components of FTIR such as IR sources, detectors, beam splitter and Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR). It will guide the delegate with sample-specific factors affecting spectral quality and mixtures.
The hands-on practicals will include the analysis of pharmaceutical and food samples by FTIR and then will analyse the data.
- You will gain knowledge about the technique of IR spectroscopy
- You will understand different types of applications which use IR spectroscopy
- You will learn about various sample preparation and analysis techniques for absorbance, transmittance and reflectance including ATR, diffuse and specular reflection
- You will learn about spectral processing techniques
- You will gain practical, hands-on experience of method creation, sample analysis and data analysis
