Event Overview:

Raman spectroscopy is a powerful tool that delivers insights about reaction dynamics, blending and other processes. However, it is an under-utilized tool in industries like chemical, personal care, petrochem and even pharma, to a degree. Raman spectroscopy not only complements FTIR, which is used every day in labs around the world, but also provides similar qualitative and quantitative chemical information while having the advantage of being easier to use. Modern Raman instruments can be as simple to start up and interpret as FTIR systems and are easier to integrate into production or in situ experiments.

In this webinar, Dr. Adam J. Hopkins and Elena Hagemann will demonstrate the utility of Raman spectroscopy for both quantitative and qualitative applications. They will look at case studies for isomerization monitoring, carbon analysis and quantification of chemical systems. These studies will show how Raman spectroscopy has evolved from something that requires great effort and expense to something small, simple and cost-effective.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Raman spectroscopy provides chemically specific data at the point of need by directly showing chemical transformations.
  • Reliable quantitative Raman results can be achieved with either “point -and-shoot” accessories or probe integrations that provide real-time results.
  • Chemometric analysis can level the playing field between instruments of different specifications and improves quantitative results.
  • Raman spectroscopy can be used for applications from basic research to quality control for product release.

Who Should Attend:

  • Researchers looking for greater insights into industrially or pharmacologically relevant challenges
  • Process development engineers and scientists looking for upstream/development solutions that can scale with production
  • Process engineers and QA/QC managers needing tools for rapid chemical analysis in the lab or inline
