HANDHELD FTIR – BEST ON-SITE CHEMISTRY ANALYSIS SOLUTION Presented by: Dr. Yanqia Wang Outline  Background of FTIR Spectrometry and Agilent Handheld FTIR - TopScan 4300  Versatile sampling interfaces (Diamond/Ge ATR, Specular Reflection, Grazing Angle Reflection and Diffuse Reflection) to satisfy different applications.  Powerful and user-friendly software to assist easy data collection and analysis qualitatively and quantitatively.  Excellent outcome from real applications.  Potential Applications Infrared Light Heat Motion of atoms and molecules IR radiation/absorption Principles of IR Spectroscopy • Most organic molecules absorb light in the infrared region to yield IR absorption spectra • Absorption at certain frequencies or wavenumbers corresponds specifically to certain vibrations of functional groups • Absorbance of the spectral features is associated with the concentration of the certain components • Qualitative and Quantitative Characterization FTIR Spectrometer Key components of an FTIR spectrometer.
