Standard Practice for General Techniques for Obtaining Infrared Spectra for Qualitative Analysis
|Publication Date:||1 December 2007|
|ICS Code (Physicochemical methods of analysis):||71.040.50|
significance And Use:
Infrared spectroscopy is the most widely used technique for identifying organic and inorganic materials. This practice describes methods for the proper application of infrared spectroscopy.
1.1 This practice covers the spectral range from 4000 to 50 cm−1 and includes techniques that are useful for qualitative analysis of liquid-, solid-, and vapor-phase samples by infrared spectrometric techniques for which the amount of sample available for analysis is not a limiting factor. These techniques are often also useful for recording spectra at frequencies higher than 4000 cm-1, in the near-infrared region.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautions are given in 6.5.1.
