Infrared Spectroscopy

Infrared spectroscopy (IR) relies on the fact that most molecules absorb light in the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum, converting it into molecular vibrations. This absorption specifically corresponds to the bonds present in the molecule. With a spectrometer, this absorption of infrared radiation by the sample material is measured in relation to the wavelength (as wave numbers, usually from 4000 – 600 cm-1)


The result is a spectrum that provides a recognizable “molecular fingerprint” which can be used to screen, scan, and identify organic and inorganic samples.
