The combination of Thermogravimetric Analysis with Infrared Spectroscopy (TG-IR) is the most common type of evolved gas analysis. Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) accurately measures the percentage weight loss of a sample as a function of temperature, but does not provide any information regarding the chemical composition of the evolved gases. Additionally, IR alone is not always sufficient for detecting the presence of components at low concentrations. This application note describes the development of a spectral library of TG-IR weight losses for polymers as well as the use of library-searching techniques for the identification of polymers and evolved gases from simple and more complex polymer formulations.
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is a common technique that is used to study the weight loss during heating. It can tell you the percentage of weight loss quantitatively and accurately. But TGA alone will not tell you anything about the chemical components of the evolved off gas. The hyphenation between TGA and FT-IR is able to identify the off gas from TGA and give a more complete picture of material characterization. The TG-IR hyphenation technique has been widely used for the polymer industry. This application note demonstrates how to combine the strength of TGA and FT-IR analysis to offers a more comprehensive material characterization.

In this compendium you will find a wide range of applications for polymers, plastics, rubbers and advanced materials. Discover how to put these applications to work for you simply and efficiently.
Infrared microscopy is a well-established analytical technique for the measurement and identification of small samples down to a few micrometers in size. It is used extensively in the polymer, pharmaceutical, chemical, food, and electronics industries, to name a few, often identifying small contaminants or foreign objects of unknown origin. In forensic applications small particles of materials such as drugs, paint chips, residues or fibers are often collected as evidence and analyzed by IR microscopy. This Application Note demonstrates the advantages of such an automated IR microscopy platform for the characterization of particles and/or foreign objects in different types of materials.

The FDA defines data integrity as “completeness, consistency, and accuracy of data. Complete, consistent, and accurate data should be attributable, legible, contemporaneously recorded, original or a true copy, and accurate (ALCOA)”. ALCOA itself has evolved to ALCOA Plus, which incorporates two of the fundamental definition terms as stated by the FDA; complete, consistent, enduring, and available. Compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 is mandatory for pharmaceutical companies and their suppliers to sell products into the United States, and also applies to other related industries.
PerkinElmer’s Spectrum™ 10 Enhanced Security (ES) software platform for infrared spectroscopy provides structural requirements and features to assist with the needs for ensuring data integrity and compliance. It affords the system owner the ability to comply with regulations and incorporate features into the validation plan to exhibit compliance. The purpose of this document is to demonstrate how Spectrum 10 ES meets the technical requirements for 21 CFR Part 11.
