Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy; Principles and Spectral Interpretation
- Peter Larkin, Group Leader, Spectroscopy and Materials Characterization, Cytec Industries, Stamford, CT
The book reviews basic principles, instrumentation, sampling methods, quantitative analysis, origin of group frequencies and qualitative interpretation using generalized Infrared (IR) and Raman spectra. An extensive use of graphics is used to describe the basic principles of vibrational spectroscopy and the origins of group frequencies, with over 100 fully interpreted FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra included and indexed to the relevant qualitative interpretation chapter. A final chapter with forty four unknown spectra and with a corresponding answer key is included to test the readers understanding. Tables of frequencies (peaks) for both infrared and Raman spectra are provided at key points in the book and will act as a useful reference resource for those involve interpreting spectra.
This book provides a solid introduction to vibrational spectroscopy with an emphasis placed upon developing critical interpretation skills. Ideal for those using and analyzing IR and Raman spectra in their laboratories as well as those using the techniques in the field.
AudiencePrimary Audience: Individuals, advanced students, Academics and Professionals using InfraRed (IR) and Raman spectroscopy SECONDARY AUDIENCE: Libraries of institutes where spectroscopy and structure determination is taught
