FT-IR as a Tool for the Characterization of Industrial Materials

Part of the Polymer Science and Technology book series (POLS, volume 36)


The characterization of industrially used materials has presented many difficulties which are not experienced in academic scientific work. A wide range of materials such as metals, semiconductors, ceramics and polymers have to be covered. These materials are brought in frequently as alloys, copolymers and mixtures. Multilayered structures and composites have become very common in advanced technology. The small amounts of additives and impurities are also important. There are also considerable limitations due to variety in sample size and shape, the scarcity in quantities and from the lack of proper information. In addition, quickness, clarity of conclusions, detection of small differences and quantitative comparisons are commonly required under the above difficult situations.
