FT-IR spectroscope

Jul 15, 2015 Off Comments in Heritage, Technology by

The FT-IR  analysis (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) is a spectroscopic technique usually used in the field of analytical chemistry and materials characterization, as well as in physical chemistry for the study of chemical bonds. It allows to recognize the functional groups within both organic and inorganic molecules. It is used for the characterization of coloring materials and organic binders, for the identification of the degradation products, for the monitoring of degradation processes and for the characterization of protective materials (such as resins, paints and coatings organic), textile fibers, paper, parchment and ink.
