Application note: quantification of peroxide using FTIR and attenuated total reflectance
‘Quantification of organic peroxide using FTIR and attenuated total reflectance’
In this application note, Shimadzu describes an initial investigation into the feasibility of using infrared spectrophotometry to identify and quantify peroxides in organic solvents, lubricants and fuels. For this initial study, the identification and lower limit of detection of t-butyl peroxide in CCI4 and motor oil were determined. For all measurements, a Shimadzu FTIR-8300 spectrometer and Hyper-IR software were used.
