Infrared Spectrometer

The Perkin Elmer Spectrum 100 Fourier Transform-Infrared Spectrometer with the Diamond Attenuated Total Reflectance sampling accessory (FT-IR) uses infrared light to determine the functional groups in organic molecules.

The Nicolet Impact 410 Infrared Spectrometer (IR) uses infrared light to probe the functional groups in organic molecules and is capable of analyzing solid and liquid samples. Students in Organic Chemistry and Organic Spectroscopic Methods courses and those involved in research use the IR to aid in the identification of compounds.
