This article presents biochemical characterization data, of organic functional groups and 3-D optimized structures of identified organic chemicals, from the Fourier transform infra-red (FT-IR) spectroscopy analyses of Rhizophora mangle L. bark-extract. Spectral plot from FT-IR spectroscopy instrumentation application to the Rhizophora mangle L. bark-extract, which includes numerical data of adsorbed frequencies for indicating fingerprints/vibration modes of organic functional groups, is supplied in the paper. The obtained spectrum was also rendered to the computer-based Euclidean Search® of the Fluka Library® reference database, for obtaining hit-list of organic chemical compounds constituted in the bark-extract. Adsorbed functional groups from the FT-IR spectroscopy, including N–H, C–N, –C[tbnd]N, O–P(=O)(H–O) and S-containing ligands, are corroborated by the chemical compounds identified by the computer-based hit-list. These data of biochemical constituent characterizations are useful for gaining insights into the prospects of using bark-extract from Rhizophora mangle L. natural-plant for corrosion-protection of metallic materials in aggressive service-environments.
