Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) is an analytical technique used to identify mainly organic materials. FTIR analysis results in an absorption spectra which provides information about the chemical bonds and molecular structure of a material. The FTIR spectrum is equivalent to the "fingerprint" of the material and can be compared with cataloged FTIR spectra to identify the material. A few examples of common materials identified by FTIR are:
