The 6th edition of this classic comprises the most comprehensive guide to infrared and Raman spectra of inorganic, organometallic, bioinorganic, and coordination compounds. From fundamental theories of vibrational spectroscopy to applications in a variety of compound types, it is extensively updated. Part B details applications of Raman and IR spectroscopy to larger and complex systems. It covers interactions of cisplatin and other metallodrugs with DNA and cytochrome c oxidase and peroxidase. This is a great reference for chemists and medical professionals working with infrared or Raman spectroscopies and for graduate students.
