Paper Abstract

While perhaps the most familiar form of thermal analysis where FT-IR has been utilized is GC-FT-IR, there are a variety of other forms of thermal analysis where FT-IR is usable to advantage. By considering the destructive or non-destructive nature of the analysis coupled with isothermal or non-isothermal and time dependent or independent criteria an assortment of experiments are describable. The scope of experiments extends from the analysis of multicomponent equilibrium adsorption to defining pyrolytic reaction mechanisms. In this paper, a survey of some of the diverse applications where FT-IR can be employed are discussed with particular emphasis on the Fourier Transform Infrared Evolved Gas Analysis (FT-IR-EGA) technique. The application of this technique in material comparison and in pyrolysis mechanism elucidation are illustrated and several other applications are cited.
