Applying Vector Software Concepts to the Quantitation of Polymer Systems
In the application of today’s FT-IR systems to polymer science, the ease and the success of that application oftentimes is not the result of a benefit purely derived from Fourier transform infrared. Often the benefit to the analysis results from the ability to use some new accessory or the ability to apply an analytical concept to better advantage in conjunction with FT-IR. So too can there be new benefits and new improvements to methods through software and applied mathematics. Such is the basis for this description of vector concepts applied to the quantitation of polymer samples.
