Utilizing spectroscopic techniques to analyze the chemical composition of candidate microplastics from environmental samples

With the growth of microplastics research in recent years, it has become crucial to expand the capabilities of research laboratories to routinely analyze the chemical composition of candidate microplastics from environmental samples. Spectroscopic techniques are critical as they can confirm manual microplastic designation through polymer identification. In this application note, we’ll explore the use of portable Raman microscopy for the identification of microplastics recovered from surface estuary waters.
