ASTM E1252

Full Name

ASTM E1252 – Standard Practice for General Techniques for Obtaining Infrared Spectra for Qualitative Analysis


This practice covers the spectral range from 4000 to 50 cm−1 and includes techniques that are useful for qualitative analysis of liquid-, solid-, and vapor-phase samples by infrared spectrometric techniques for which the amount of sample available for analysis is not a limiting factor. These techniques are often also useful for recording spectra at frequencies higher than 4000 cm−1, in the near-infrared region.
