‘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.

Qualitative analysis of rubber can be conducted quickly and easily using ATR measurement. With this technique, an infrared spectrum is easily obtained for qualitative analysis by affixing a rubber sample to the surface of an ATR prism. However, the composition of elements in a rubber sample can also be analysed easily and quickly, and further, non-destructively by EDX (energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometry). This application note from Shimadzu introduces the qualitative analysis ...
The Shimadzu DUH-211S ultra micro hardness tester, which is compatible with the measurement of micro objects, was used for the measuring hardness of hair.
In winemaking, freshly harvested grapes are crushed and the resulting juice (must) is collected. The must contains fermentable sugars and natural yeasts which, either by themselves or with the help of additional yeast cultures, start the fermentation process in which mainly ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide are formed. This application note from Shimadzu explains how and why FTIR spectroscopy is applied for quality assurance or for product characterisation — for example, the determination ...
The Servopulser EHF-L series of electro-hydraulic fatigue testing machines from Shimadzu has been specifically developed for the research and development of new materials.
This application note from Shimadzu presents the Autograph system, which performs tensile, compression and bending tests on specimens to evaluate their characteristics.
