Identification of Microplastics in the Marine Environment by Raman Microspectroscopy and Imaging

An effective method for identifying the type of polymer and determining particle size and distribution of microplastics particles is Raman microspectroscopy and imaging. In comparison to FTIR, a significant advantage of Raman is its ability to identify particles up to 500 nm in size. In addition, the complete wavelength region can be used for identification. (…)
