Microfluidic system for fast time resolved FTIR spectroscopy of chemical reactions in solution

Using novel micro-fabrication technologies we developed a microfluidic mixer for fast initiation of chemical reactions in solution. Combining this mixing technology with fast IR spectroscopy, arbitrary chemical reactions with time resolution of a few milliseconds can now be followed. If the chemical system under investigation can be started by a laser pulse, a time resolution in the nano- or microsecond range can be achieved.
