Project description

The application for this research equipment in chemical labs where new polymers are being developed for a wide range of applications, going from new recyclable materials until drug development for cancer and viruses, concerns the replacement of a 20-year old in-situ FTIR equipment that has been used continuously for several research groups to follow chemical reactions, mainly in the area of polymer chemistry.
