Plastics are widely used daily and are among the primary pollutants on the planet. A solution to prevent environmental pollution due to plastics is to identify their type and dispose of or recycle them appropriately. ATR-FTIR is a simple and robust spectroscopic technique that enables rapids plastics identification based on the characteristic IR spectrum of each sample. In this application note, an Edinburgh Instruments IR5 FTIR Spectrometer was used to identify four different plastic samples successfully.
