FTIR Improves Chemistry Understanding

Organic chemists and scientists strive to improve the research and development of chemical compounds, synthetic chemical routes and processes. In situ reaction monitoring tracks concentration changes of key reactive and transient species to understand mechanism pathway, determine kinetics and detect major reaction events. ReactIR 15 is a real-time, in situ mid-infrared based system designed to study reaction progression and provide specific information about reaction initiation, conversion, intermediates and endpoint. The comprehensive nature of the data makes it ideal for real-time process optimization.

Sampling technology options enable the successful monitoring of gas or liquid phases under any process conditions such as:
