Infrared Spectroscopy of Polymers

Part of the Polymers book series (POLYMERS, volume 7)


Historically, studies of the selective absorption of infrared (IR) radiation preceeded vibrational spectroscopy using the Smekal-Raman effect, although in the early times recording of IR-spectra was difficult and time-consuming1–4). The development of routine double beam spectrophotometers operating in the analytically most important medium IR (mIR) made this type of spectroscopy the most important one in identifying known compounds and elucidating the chemical structure of unknown ones.
