    Abstract

    The analysis of thermally changed, e.g., melted, decomposed, burned, or incinerated textile fibers by FTIR spectroscopy is described. This method allows us to observe the pathway of fiber thermal degradation and to find the chemical (organic and inorganic) compounds in degraded fibers. The results of these examinations can be applied in the forensic analysis for the identification and differentiation between thermally changed fibers.
