I am an R&D chemist for an adhesives manufacturer. We are moving to purchase an FTIR and am familiar with its applications. We have the option to add on a near IR accessory. I am wondering what types of advantages over the standard IR it would bring and what types of applications it would be used in. I am currently working on waterborne synthetic polymer resins with surfactants and gelatin animal glue products. Any suggestions or info would be helpful.
