FTIR Transmission Spectral Libraries:
Highest Quality Data:
This is one of the largest and highest quality FTIR databases in the world. The data has been measured under strict controls at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan using various sample preparation methods:
KBr pellets (solids)
Nujol Mull (solids)
Traceability of Data:
The quality of the spectra were continuously checked by expert spectroscopists
The instruments were regularly maintained and calibrated
High purity samples were obtained from Japanese fine chemical producers and were also analyzed using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry
Data input was checked through secondary verification
Spectral Resolution: 2 cm-1 or 4 cm-1
Spectral range: 4000 cm-1 to 400 cm-1
Contains highest purity standard samples; also polymers and commercial samples
Name, CAS number, molecular formula, and additional information with most spectra*
Databases are delivered with resolutions compatible with your instrument software
Lists of compounds/spectra in each database are available in pdf format
