MICROPLASTICS ANALYSIS WITH FTIR & RAMAN SPECTROSCOPY

By alice | April 22, 2021 |

What are Microplastics? A microplastic is a small piece of plastic that is <5 mm in size. Plastics that measure under 100 nm are regarded as nanoplastics. The presence of microplastics in the environment and our food chain is of growing concern. This has led to increased testing for the presence of microplastics in a…
