Abstract

Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is now one of the most popular techniques in analytical chemistry. It has moved quickly from research centres to quality control benches, but the origins of FTIR spectroscopy date back over 100 years. More than most technologies, FTIR has relied on developments in diverse fields. It has, throughout its history, borrowed from the best of the engineering of its day. This article discusses how the technology reached chemistry laboratories.
