The Pursuit of an Optimal Method for Microplastics Identification Using FTIR and FTIR Microscope - Part II Interview with Jennifer Lynch, PhD, NIST, Hawaii Pacific University


In Part II of the conversation on microplastics, Dr. Jennifer Lynch shares her research group's practice on using FTIR and FTIR microscope for microplastics and mesoplastics identification, especially the sample preparation aspect. She also comments that the current lack of standard practice, from sample preparation to data reporting, in the microplastics research community is largely due to the lack of an optimal method. **Certain commercial equipment, instruments, or materials are identified in this video to specify adequately the experimental procedure. Such identification does not imply recommendation or endorsement by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, nor does it imply that the materials or equipment identified are necessarily the best available for the purpose.**
