Petroleum & Petrochemical

Biofuels can be analyzed by Raman spectroscopy (characterizing the feedstock and composition), as can gasoline, for which octane number and presence of sulfur additives are key parameters. Raman can also rapidly identify various fuels, as well as characterize diesel fuel composition, and identify the presence of additives, oxygenates, and taggants (which are important in identifying the source and utility of fuel for particular applications). Gasoline blending processes can be monitored in real-time, removing the need for costly and time-consuming measurements made with knock engines (which also require large amounts of product!). The mixtures of hydrocarbons and aromatics in petroleum streams can be quantified by Raman spectroscopy.

Application Notes

Raman spectroscopy is a nondestructive and highly versatile technique for analysis of chemicals, both organic and inorganic. It is used in industry, bioscience, medical diagnosis, forensics, and many other areas.
Read the full application note
Raman is a well-developed spectroscopic tool for molecular identification and is widely accepted for qualitative analysis where it can provide rapid identification of materials, often at their point of use or delivery. Due to the high resolution that Raman can provide, it is also used for structural elucidation as well as quantitative analysis
Read the full application note
Optical spectral measurements have been used for decades for the identification, characterization and quality assessment of oils and lubricants. The most common spectroscopic method, which has been well documented since the 1960s, is infrared spectroscopy, today used in the form of FTIR. In this application note, the i-Spec system is considered as a complementary tool to FTIR for condition monitoring of fluids outside of the traditional laboratory environment.
