Molecular Spectroscopy in Practice: Investigating Problems in Industry and Beyond

Sponsored Content

Wednesday and Thursday, July 27 and 28, 2022 EDT As we all know, theory is one thing and practice is another. Join us for our third annual two-day virtual symposium, presented jointly by the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS), the Coblentz Society, and Spectroscopy magazine, on molecular spectroscopy in practice. This year’s focus is on investigating problems in industry and beyond. The first day, Wednesday, July 27, will focus the analysis of consumer products, and the second day, Thursday, July 28, will address industrial products.

Event Overview:

Spectroscopy magazine, the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS), and the Coblentz Society are pleased to present a joint virtual conference on July 27 and 28, 2022, on molecular spectroscopy. This two-day event will provide essential information for molecular spectroscopists developing methods for an applying molecular spectroscopy techniques, including Raman, infrared (IR), and fluorescence spectroscopy, to investigate practical problems in industrial settings and beyond. The first day, Wednesday, July 27, will focus the analysis of consumer products, and the second day, Thursday, July 28, will address industrial products.

Each day, there will be a morning session and an afternoon session. The morning sessions will provide a series of 30-minute talks, followed by an interactive question-and-answer (Q&A) and discussion period with all the speakers. In the afternoon sessions, leading instrument suppliers will give 20-minute talks discussing troubleshooting, tips-and-tricks, and applications.

We wish to extend a special thank you to our session chairs from the Society for Applied Spectroscopy and the Coblentz Society for developing this program: Ellen V. Miseo, PhD, a consultant; Andrew Whitley, PhD, the VP of Global Business Development at Horiba Scientific; and Adam Hopkins, the Spectroscopy Product Manager at Metrohm USA, Inc.

Who Should Attend:

Anyone using molecular spectroscopy techniques to solve practical problems, particularly in industry.

Top Reasons to Attend:
Get up to speed on new approaches using IR, ATR-FTIR, Raman, SERS, IR and Raman imaging, and fluorescence techniques
