This work shows that methods based on miniaturized near- and mid-infrared spectroscopy can be used effectively for the quality control of herbal medicines.
Microplastics from clothing, abrasive action on plastics, or engineered microbeads as found in some exfoliating cosmetics are showing up in many environmental systems. FT-IR microscopy is a useful tool in the analysis of microplastics, providing visual information, particle counts, and particle identification.
When analytical techniques that depend on multivariate calibration models are used to analyze commercial products, the risks of false compliance and noncompliance must be assessed. This study presents an example from the application of a mid-IR partial least squares model to the analysis of seven parameters in red wine.
