Worksheet: IR Sample Preparation
In this worksheet, we will practice describing infrared spectroscopy sampling methods including Nujol mulls, gas cells, salt plates, and compressed discs.
What is the advantage of using a silver chloride sample cell rather than a sodium chloride sample cell for IR spectroscopy?
- ASilver chloride does not absorb IR radiation.
- BThere is no advantage.
- CSilver chloride is translucent.
- DAqueous samples can be measured; is not water soluble.
- ESodium chloride is less expensive.
