Webinar: Tackling the Environmental Threat of Microplastics Using Raman Spectroscopy

Dr. Bridget O’Donnell, Manager of Raman Applications for HORIBA Scientific will be presenting this webinar in partnership with Spectroscopy Magazine.

This webcast will describe the use of Raman spectroscopy for the characterization of microplastics and nanoplastics (plastic particulates <5 mm), which threaten the environment and potentially human health. An overview of the process of microplastic characterization will be given including a discussion of collection, extraction, detection, and identification methods, with a view to support future legislation and monitoring of microplastic contamination. The necessary high throughput requirements of microplastics analysis will also be addressed through automation of Raman spectral measurements of large quantities of microplastics.

Three Dimensional Raman Imaging

Application Note - Three Dimensional Raman Imaging

Segmented channel waveguides have been fabricated in single crystal KTiOPO4 through a topotactic process of partial cation exchange. The ion-exchanged waveguides maintain the high nonlinear susceptibility of KTiOPO4 to function as frequency doubling laser light sources. We apply three dimensional (3D) Raman imaging to understand and characterize the changes to the chemical bonding and crystalline structure as well as measure the volumetric structure of the waveguide segments.

Pharmaceutical compounds distribution and cosmetic products analyzed by confocal Raman spectroscopy

Application Note - Pharmaceutical compounds distribution and cosmetic products analyzed by confocal Raman spectroscopy

In the final step of the formulation process, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries have to control their products to check if the compounds' distribution in the final product, or in its application form, i.e. dispersed on a skin for an intracutaneous product, are homogenous and stable in order to guarantee the product's efficacy. In this paper, we present why confocal Raman microscopy is an excellent tool for product characterization after formulation, illustrating more capabilities of the LabRAM Soleil™ confocal Raman multimode microscope.

Raman microscopy applied on polymers characterization: An overview

Application Note - Raman microscopy applied on polymers characterization: An overview

Raman microscopy is an excellent tool to address the polymer research. Raman microscopy can be used to characterize raw materials, to inline or outline monitor polymerization process, to investigate orientation and crystallization changes, and also to control the quality and traceability of genuine products, by understanding defects and compounds distribution. In this article we present how HORIBA Raman microscopy solutions can support the polymer chemical and structural understanding.

Polymorphisms characterization: when Raman microscopy supports the pharmaceutical industry

Application Note - Polymorphisms characterization: when Raman microscopy supports the pharmaceutical industry

Polymorphisms characterization of active molecules is one piece of important information for the pharmaceutical industry, not only on raw powders, but also in the final form. Raman microscopy remains the most appropriate solution for this application. In this paper, we present an example of polymorphisms characterization by Raman microscopy using the super low frequency module.
