The Bruker Vertex 80 Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer is a high-performance instrument used for the analysis of chemical composition and structure of various materials. It is equipped with three accessories, including attenuated total reflection (ATR), transmission, and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), making it suitable for a wide range of applications.
The ATR accessory is ideal for the analysis of solid and liquid samples, as it allows for the direct analysis of the surface of the material. The transmission accessory is suitable for the analysis of thin films and solutions, and the TGA accessory enables the study of thermal degradation and decomposition of materials.
The Bruker Vertex 80 FTIR spectrometer has various applications in research fields such as chemistry, biology, materials science, and pharmaceuticals. In chemistry, it is used for the identification and quantification of chemical compounds, as well as for the analysis of molecular structure and bonding. In biology, it is used for the analysis of biomolecules such as proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids. In materials science, it is used for the analysis of polymers, semiconductors, and composites. In pharmaceuticals, it is used for the identification and analysis of drugs and drug formulations.
