Interpreting FTIR spectrum

Main Question or Discussion Point

I collected FTIR spectrum (using an ATR stage) on a sample and a standard and noticed the following: (1) all the peaks in the spectrum matched, and (2) the standard had several peaks that absorbed more light than the sample (see 2nd page on attachment). Does this mean that the sample is not as pure as the standard (i.e. an IR inactive salt is mixed with the sample).

Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
