Publically available NIR-SWIR spectral libraries of hydrocarbons

We’ve been looking for some publically available NIR-SWIR digital spectral libraries of hydrocarbons without success.  Do such things exist, or are they all commercialized?

Thank you,

Jeff Olsenholler

Dear Jeff,

Welcome to the group.

A. Bonanno and Peter Griffiths published a paper "Short-wave near infrared spectra of  organic liquids" in the very first issue of JNIRS [1(1), 13-23 (1993)]. At the time they indicate that data was availble - but that is 21 years ago!  Jerry Workman JR published three volumes of "Handbook of organic compunds" in 2001. It contains SW-NIR spectra of some hydrocarbons. I do not think that any digital data was available. Otherwise I think you are correct about commercialisation; if you buy the software you get some free spectra.

Best wishes,
