A Corrosive Liquid Investigated by Diamond ATR Infrared Spectroscopy

February 01, 2020

Because of their corrosive properties, corrosive lipids are challenging to analyze by ATR-FT-IR. Repeated and prolonged analysis can damage many ATR crystals. Diamond ATR is a better choice for such applications than other ATR crystal materials like ZnSe and Ge. This application note examines a corrosive liquid as it becomes progressively more concentrated using diamond ATR.
