FT-IR spectrophotometers


Fourier Transform Infra-red Spectroscopy (FT-IR) allows us to obtain information on the structure of compounds by studying their absorption spectra, originating from their molecular vibrations.


The infra-red spectrum is one of the most characteristic physical properties of the material. By using particular techniques and appropriate accessories, it is possible to analyse substances in different physical states, for example solids, liquids, solutions and suspensions.
