Infrared (IR) spectroscopy is an extremely powerful tool to characterize the functional groups in molecules. IR spectroscopy is widely used in industry as well as in academic research. It is a simple and reliable technique for measurement, quality control and dynamic measurement. It is also employed in forensic analysis - in civil and criminal analysis. In this course, we will learn about IR spectroscopy – from the basic principles to data analysis.
Hands on training of recording IR spectra using a spectrometer in the solid as well as liquid samples will be provided. Furthermore, methods of analysis (baseline subtraction, curve-fitting, multi-peakfitting, deconvolution, etc.) of the IR spectra will be discussed. Hands on training on the same will be provided on training data-sets. After completing the course the candidate will be able to record, analyse, and interpret the IR spectra independently.
