Infrared Spectroscopy Laboratory

.

A BOMEM Michelson MB100 spectrophotometer, a BIO-RAD FTS 3500GX Excalibur spectrophotometer, and a BRUKER Vertex 70 equipment are installed in this laboratory, which has been in continuous operation since 1994. The financial resources for the acquisition of these spectrophotometers were granted by UFPR, the PADCT-III Program and the Pro-Equipment Program from CAPES. The 35 square-meter laboratory had its remodelling, for re-adjustment of floor, benches and partitions, recently funded by UFPR resources. Of all the multiuser equipments shown in the present list, these spectrophotometers have been the most demanded instruments by the Departments of Chemistry, Physics, Pharmacy, Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering of UFPR, besides being also used by researchers and undergraduate students of the Institute of Technology of Paraná (TECPAR).
