Note on a Technique for Obtaining Infrared Spectra of Treated Wood Surfaces
Keywords:Frustrated multiple internal reflectance, infrared spectra, wood surfaces
AbstractThis note describes a simple technique for obtaining good quality frustrated multiple internal reflectance (FMIR) infrared spectra of treated wood surfaces. The effect on Pinus radiata wood treated with 30 percent aqueous hydrogen peroxide is shown as an example.
