Glancing at the recent advances, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) has emerged as a powerful analytical technique used in pharmaceutical sciences. This paper delineates FTIR as a quantitative tool used now-a-days and other analytical applications in pharmaceutical and allied areas. The use of FTIR is not only limited to pharmacy field, but had also widened its horizon to agriculture, polymer, petroleum and environmental analysis. This paper summarizes how FTIR is used to quantify different pharmaceutical dosage forms. Hence FTIR spectroscopy can turn out to be a potent alternative over other analytical methods which are time consuming and laborious.
