Advanced FTIR spectroscopy (Micro-FTIR/ in-situ DRIFTS) SOLIDS
Basic UV-Vis-NIR Spectroscopy
Infrared spectroscopy is the most popular and cost-effective technique for the structural elucidation of simple chemical compounds, especially organic mole- cules and many polymers. This advanced course offers practical instruction of the FTIR microscope’s uses in transmission and reflection modes on various types of samples (user’s custom), allowing the collection of mid-IR range spec- trum (4000-650 cm -1 ) at a microscopic scale, imaging, mapping, and profiling the sample’s area of interest. In addition, this course includes practical instruction for FTIR characterization using DRIFTS accessory: upon exposure to extreme con- ditions, the in-situ characterization of surface function changes and kinetic study in a sealed high-temperature reaction cell is enabled. Following this course, the user is expected to independently operate the instrument and perform basic data analysis.
The UV-Vis-NIR instrument is a high performance spectrophotometer that provides a broad wavelength range for the spectra acquisition from 175 nm to 3300 nm, which, together with different available accessories, offers a wide range of possible capabilities to analyze almost any solid or liquid. This course introduces the fundamentals of UV/Vis/NIR techniques, including a discussion of their strengths and weaknesses and general guidance for their application. It trains users on instruments and software usage, accessories installation and configuration, gathering the data, and measuring diffuse and relative specular reflectance, diffuse transmittance and multi-angle, and high sensitivity absolute specular reflectance analysis. Following this course, the user is expected to be able to install the accessories, operate the instrument, and perform basic data analysis.
