Abstract

Fourier-Transform InfraRed micro-spectroscopy (µFTIR) was applied to the microplastic (MP) analysis of drinking water samples taken from the inlet and outlet of a groundwater-fed waterworks located in Denmark. The outcome of the µFTIR analysis was then compared to that of Raman micro-spectroscopy (µRaman) applied to the same set of samples. Overall, µFTIR was more effective to analyse the >50 µm MPs, whilst µRaman the 1–50 µm MP fraction.
