FT-infrared Spectroscopy

Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), often simply referred to as FTIRs, is used to gain an infrared spectrum of absorption or emission of a solid, liquid or gas. An FTIR spectrometer can gathers high-spectral-resolution data over a wide spectral range at the same time, unlike a diffusive instrument. This consults a major advantage over a dispersive spectrometer, which measures intensity over a narrow range of wavelengths at once. The technique is for analysis of physical evidence during forensic investigations, for example, fibers, controlled substances, and paint. The technique has a vast advantage of its nondestructive nature and specific signature for different sample types based on their chemical composition, the advantage is same as other vibrational spectroscopic techniques for various forensic applications. Previous articles cover many topics and prove that research using FT-IR spectroscopy for body fluid examination is rapidly growing. It is inexpensive and improved the capabilities of an FT-IR for technology advancements, with time passing by. In recent studies, FT-IR is the standard for organic compound identification work in academic, analytical, QC/QA and forensics laboratories.

In the past ten years, infrared (IR) spectroscopy had certificated to be a powerful analytical method in the field of agricultural, pharmaceutical, environment and food. On the other hand, FT-IR is an superb technique for pharmaceutical analysis because of its advantages, such as easily to use, sensitively, selectively, green, and quickly, the whole analysis time concluding making the pellets, measurement, identification, and report generation is lower than 10 minutes and helps ensure regulatory compliance through validation protocols. Compared with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) which is less fast, it requires the preliminary preparation of the mobile phase to detect the organic drug substances in pharmacopeia and has not been applied in the field of mineral chemistry. Infrared spectroscopy is primarily a supplement to X-ray diffraction (XRD) and other methods used to study clay.
