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?
- ASodium chloride is less expensive.
- BAqueous samples can be measured; is not water soluble.
- CSilver chloride is translucent.
- DThere is no advantage.
- ESilver chloride does not absorb IR radiation.
