Course Notes on the Interpretation of Infrared and Raman Spectra (0471248231) cover image


Interpretation of IR and Raman Spectra provides the fundamentals of interpreting IR and Raman spectra of complex molecules primarily organic molecules. Examinations of theory provide a basis for predicting functional group frequency location in new molecular structures. 
  • Generously enriched with sample exercises to help rapidly develop powerful interpretive skills.
  • Includes appendices with fourteen bibliographies by subject area.
