Fast and Accurate
There are an unlimited number of applications in the field of chemical spectroscopy. Chemical reactions are dynamic processes that vary with changing conditions resulting from various techniques.
From enzyme reactions within our cells to photosynthesis in leaves, chemical reactions play a vital role in every aspect of our lives. Factors like concentration, temperature, pressure, and the presence of a catalyst affect reaction speed. The study of chemical kinetics characterizes these processes and improves our understanding of how these factors and others change the outcome of a chemical reaction.
One of the most rapidly evolving techniques for monitoring chemical reactions is Raman spectroscopy. This technology is beneficial for product identification, reaction monitoring, remote sensing, and any other applicable measurement in chemistry. Raman provides an invaluable analytical tool for molecular fingerprinting used in material identification and monitoring changes in molecular bond structure (e.g., state changes, stresses, and strains).
Avantes uses the high-sensitivity AvaSpec spectrometers in combination with a wide variety of lasers (including 532, 633, and 785 nm) to give you the best result for your Raman measurements. The spectrometers are appropriately configured according to the wavelength of the laser. We offer Raman bundles that can be configured to your specific field of interest with all the necessary accessories and software.
Fluorescence is utilized in chemistry to investigate the behavior of chemical compounds. Fluorescence spectroscopy – also known as fluorometry or spectrofluorometry – is electromagnetic spectroscopy that analyzes a sample’s fluorescence. It involves using a beam of light that excites the electrons in molecules of certain compounds and causes them to emit visible light, typically, but not necessarily. It is a valuable technique in many biological (chlorophyll and carotenoid), biochemical (diagnosis of malignancies), and environmental applications.
