FOURIER TRANSFORM INFRARED -FTIR SPECTOPHOTOMETER TRAINING
DATE : 25TH FEBRUARY 2020
TIME : 9 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
LOCATION : MAKMAL GUNASAMA KIMIA 1
The Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectrophotometer training had be held on 25th February 2020 at Makmal Gunasama Kimia 1 to university’s staffs and students. The fundamental course provided instruction in theory, instrumentation, maintenance, data acquisition software, sample preparation and the use of various accessories which covered instrument maintenance, calibration and the preparation of solid and liquids.
FTIR is one of the most important and emerging tool used for analyzing compund for different quality parameters. This technique has substantial potential as a quantitative quality control tool for the food industry. FTIR analysis methods are convenient, rapid and automatable, and in conjunction with attenuated total reflectance (ATR) technology, dramatically simplify sample handling. Thus, this training provides basic knowledge on how to operate this instrument as well as basic troubleshooting.
