Infrared spectroscopy (IR) is a well established analytical technique for the identification of organic molecules. In this first dedicated volume, the theory of IR is described and is then related to various biological systems. Chapters on instrumentation, sample preparation and the interpretation of spectra give the reader practical help in using the technique. A comprehensive applications chapter illustrates the diversity and power of this technique in real systems.
