ATR-FT-IR spectra of various conservation materials

In this page a selection of ATR-FT-IR spectra of various conservation materials are presented. ATR-FT-IR spectra were recorded using a Thermo Scientific Nicolet 6700 FT-IR spectrometer with a “Smart Orbit” diamond micro-ATR accessory in mid-IR and far-IR regions (4000-225 cm-1). 

These infrared spectra have been recorded at University of Tartu (Estonia), Institute of Chemistry, Chair of Analytical Chemistry.
