Paper Abstract

Considering the importance of Raman spectroscopy as an analytical technique it is perhaps surprising that Raman spectrometers are seldom encountered in industrial laboratories and that so little work has been reported on samples of commercial interest. At least part of the reason for this can be traced to the large capital cost and the labour intensive nature of the sampling procedures. Even more significant, however, is the problem of fluorescence which more often than not totally obscures the Raman signal. Because of these difficulties Raman spectroscopy has played largely a secondary role and the unique information afforded from the Raman process has not been fully utilised.
