FT/IR vs. NIR: A Study with Lignocellulose

WithDonald A. Burns, Tor P. Schultz

This study was prompted by a report on the rapid determination of lignocellulose by diffuse reflectance Fourier transform infrared reflectance (FT/IR) spectroscopy [1]. Although the results of that study were good, the claims by the promoters of near-infrared (NIR) instrumentation suggested that the latter might produce equally good results in less time and with less sample preparation.
