Introduction: In recent years, polymer materials have become more complex due to increased composition and diversification so that a one-sided analysis is insufficient and multifaceted observations and analyses are required. In response to this need, JEOL has engaged in applied research under the keyword of 'YOKOGUSHI' (multifaceted cross-instrumental) using various instruments organically. In this Urushi Note, multifaceted analysis methods for polymer materials are illustrated using the examples of natural lacquer (urushi) analysis. The use of TEM, SEM, ESR, NMR, MS, and FT-IR instruments is undertaken. Click below to download and read more.
