Application of Molecular Spectroscopy in Environmental Screening Driving Growth Worth USD 6.85 billion

Molecular Spectroscopy Market

Illinois, United States, 2021-Oct-13 — /EPR Network/ —

The rising levels of environmental pollution, coupled with the severe depletion of natural resources, are the major factors that have brought into effect several laws and regulations to monitor environmental pollution levels. For instance, in the U.S., the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), Clean Water Act (CWA), and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) focus on regulating the quality of the environment through the use of analytical tools, such as molecular spectroscopy. In environmental applications, molecular spectroscopy is used in the following areas:

  • Wastewater Treatment: To analyze the changes in the concentration/composition of inlet water
  • Water Safety Analysis: To quantify bacterial concentration levels and the concentration of other constituents in water samples
  • Measurement of PAH (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons) Levels in the Environment: To monitor PAH levels, as this substance is shown to cause carcinogenic and mutagenic effects and is a potent immunosuppressant
  • Evaluate the Environmental Impact of Mining: Trace levels of contamination can be detected using molecular spectroscopy; harmful acid-producing mine drainage can be detected immediately using the technique.

Molecular spectroscopy is the mainstay of several studies conducted by environmental research and conservation agencies across the world. RAMAN, Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy are frequently used to study the chemical characteristics of bacterial cell surfaces in biofilm-related research. Additionally, several studies have employed FTIR spectroscopy to obtain in situ biochemical and physiological information on biofilms to monitor and map changes in their development (Source: Methodological approaches for studying the microbial ecology of drinking water distribution systems, Elsevier, 2014). The widespread use of molecular spectroscopy as an analytical tool in environmental studies and research is expected to drive market growth, especially due to the increasing research in the field of environmental conservation and the presence of government regulations promoting environmental studies.
