DescriptionInterpretation 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.
