UV-Vis spectrophotometry is widely used in analytical chemistry, producing precise results and is commonly found in analytical, clinical, and research labs. It plays a crucial role in various scientific disciplines, relying on the interaction of UV and Vis light with matter to analyze absorption and transmission properties. The spectrophotometer, developed in the early 20th century, measures light absorption at various wavelengths and paved the way for UV-Vis spectrophotometry’s widespread application in scientific fields. The technique involves passing a beam of UV or visible light through a sample and measuring the intensity of the transmitted or absorbed light. The resulting spectrum provides a unique fingerprint for each compound, enabling the identification and quantification of analytes in a given sample.
