SOLIDS

Surface Tension SOLIDS

Basic FTIR (Fourier Transform Infra-Red) Spectroscopy

The principal measuring method of the Tensiometer is based on the precise measurement of the force occurring when wetting a measuring probe or solid sample. The Force Tensiometer K100 is able to perform surface tension, inter- facial tension, micelle concentration, as well as contact angle measurements on solids, fibers, and powders. Additional features that aid in high resolution and reproducibility is the ability for automatic stirring, an ionizer for static discharg- ing, and an automated sample stage. This course will introduce the fundamental background theory of the Tensiometer, including a discussion of general guid- ance and its strengths and weaknesses. It trains users on sample preparation, software usage, data collection, basics of force measurements, and switching accessories and modes. Following this course, the user is expected to inde- pendently operate the instrument and perform basic data analysis.

Infrared spectroscopy is one the most popular and cost-effective techniques for the structural elucidation of simple chemical compounds, especially organic mol- ecules and many polymers. This course offers an introduction to basic principles of FTIR spectroscopy and hands-on training, including: description of optical components of spectrometer, measurement in Mid-IR range (4000-400 cm -1 ) using different sampling techniques (transmission, reflectance, ATR, DRIFTS), insight on measurement interferences and background spectrum understanding and correction, spectral interpretation (i.e. alkanes, phenols, ethers, ketones, acids, etc.), and data manipulation and evaluation (processing, correction, library search and others). Following this course, the user is expected to independently operate the instrument and perform basic data analysis.
