What does FT IR stand for?

FTIR stands for Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy. FTIR is a technology that can identify chemicals using an infrared light source to measure absorption. First, the sample is exposed to different wavelengths of infrared light and the instrument measures which wavelengths are absorbed.

Keeping this in view, what is the purpose of FTIR?

Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) is a technique used to obtain an infrared spectrum of absorption or emission of a solid, liquid or gas. An FTIR spectrometer simultaneously collects high-spectral-resolution data over a wide spectral range.

What is the use of infrared spectroscopy?

Infrared Spectroscopy is the analysis of infrared light interacting with a molecule. This can be analyzed in three ways by measuring absorption, emission and reflection. The main use of this technique is in organic and inorganic chemistry. It is used by chemists to determine functional groups in molecules.
