How FTIR Microspectroscopy Enhances Chemical Identification & Research in Microplastics

During this webinar, we’ll focus on microplastics and the detection and identification of microplastics particles using FTIR microspectroscopy.

Microplastics pollution is one of the greatest man-made environment threats we are facing today. Researchers need to understand the composition information of specific microplastics samples (micro-plastics, microbeads, etc.) to better identify them, and understand where they are coming from. However, even the definition of microplastics (plastic piece less than 5 mm in size) presents the biggest challenge: how do you quickly and effectively analyze a sample that small?

During this webinar, we’ll introduce you to FTIR microspectroscopy – an exciting new way to rapidly visualize and identify sub 5 mm microplastic particles. You will learn how a simplified micro sampling accessory can provide added flexibility to routine FTIR instruments and enhance microplastics identification and research.

Key Webinar Takeaways:

  • Learn how to detect and identify microplastics particles using IR microscopy
  • Understand different separation techniques used to collect and observe samples
  • Explore current techniques researchers used to examine microplastics pollution
