Raman Spectroscopy in Analyzing Fats and Oils in Foods

June 01, 2022

Several types of Raman spectroscopy, including Fourier transform (FT)–Raman and dispersive Raman, are well suited to examine and understand the fat compositional heterogeneity in solid foods, identify polymorph or crystallinity, and measure fatty acid saturation.

Making Industrial Raman Spectroscopy Practical

November 01, 2020

Raman spectroscopy is a valuable process analytical technology (PAT) for many applications across multiple industries, as a result of its many advantages, such as molecular specificity, ability to be directly coupled to a reaction vessel, and compatibility with solids, liquids, gases, and turbid media.

Raman Spectroscopy as a Tool for Analytical Quality Control in a Hospital Environment

June 01, 2016

Analytical quality control (AQC) is an established application of Raman spectroscopy in many industrial fields. The extension of Raman spectroscopy as an AQC method in hospital environments imparts the benefits of a noninvasive and nondestructive analysis. The literature in using Raman spectroscopy as an AQC method for chemotherapy preparation and anesthesia gas monitoring is reviewed. Future applications in tissue engineering and incorporating new Raman techniques into AQC are also discussed.

Enhanced Raman Reflection Spectroscopy for Process Analytical Technology

February 17, 2016

A novel approach in Raman spectroscopy enables bulk material analysis without the need for specialized equipment. Enhanced Raman reflection can be integrated into current processes using available instrumentation, enabling real-time process measurement and control.
