Benefits of FTIR gas analysis for smoke toxicity measurements


Thermo Fisher Scientific highlighted how understanding the chemical and physical properties of materials during combustion leads to improved materials and better public safety standards in a recent webinar.

The webinar looked at how online fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) – a technique used to obtain an infrared spectrum of absorption or emission of a solid, liquid or gas – can provide multi-component analysis of toxic gases released during combustion events, and can be used as an alternative to single-component analysers or GC (gas chromatography) methods.

‘Multi-component Smoke Toxicity Analysis Webinar’ also looked at how new European railway/transportation regulations (EN 45545-2) impact testing techniques for dangerous acids such as HCl, HBr, HCN, and HF.
