FTIR spectrometers are the third generation infrared spectrometer. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) identifies chemical bonds in a molecule by producing an infrared absorption spectrum. FTIR is a sensitive instrument for detecting functional groups and characterizing covalent bonding information. FTIR offers quantitative and qualitative analysis for organic and inorganic samples. It is widely used in organic synthesis, polymer science, petrochemical engineering, pharmaceutical industry and food analysis because the wide spectrum is obtained.FTIR has many advantages compared to other IR devices:
• Resolution is very high.
• Scan rate of all frequencies is short (approx. 1 sec)
• Wide scan range
• High resolution
• The signal-to-noise ratio of the spectrum is high.
