Application Note

Modular Raman Spectroscopy for Chemical Alcohol Discrimination

Source: Ocean Optics, Inc.

Raman Spectroscopy provides convenient and rapid analysis for chemical sample identification, including alcohol and alcohol isomers. Its non-invasive measurement capabilities provide reliable and non-destructive testing in aqueous solutions, powders, gels, tablets, and surfaces. Additionally, there is no interference from water, and little to no sample preparation is required. This application note demonstrates how Ocean Optics modular Raman components differentiate between 10 different alcohol samples with similar molecular formulas.
