Fourier Transform Infrared Spectometer (FTIR)
The Nicolet Nexus 870 spectrometer combines FT-IR performance with a range of experimental options including diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy (DRIFT), attenuated total reflection spectroscopy (ATR), photoacoustic, and polymer stretching.
The following setups are also available for use:
Polarisation modulation-infrared reflection-adsorption spectroscopy (PM-IRRAS), ideal for thin-films or monolayers
Polarisation modulation-vibrational circular dichroism (PM-VCD) is useful in analysing chiral molecules, with applications such as determining the purity of enantiomers, determining absolute structure, or analysing the secondary structure of molecules.
PM-VLOD capabilities are also available.
In person training to be completed with relevant staff.
