A complete guide to choosing and using the best analytical technique for the job at hand
Today's new generation of spectroscopic instrumentation allows for more accurate and varied measurements than ever before. At the same time, increasingly powerful, user-friendly PC hardware and software make running those instruments relative child's play. However, although they may have solved many of the problems traditionally associated with conducting molecular spectroscopic analyses, these refinements tend to obscure inherent technical challenges which, if not taken into consideration, can seriously undermine a research initiative. Modern Techniques in Applied Molecular Spectroscopy gives scientists and technicians the knowledge they need to address those challenges and to make optimal selection and use of contemporary molecular spectroscopic techniques and technologies.
While editor Francis Mirabella and contributors provide ample background information about how and why individual techniques work, they concentrate on practical considerations of crucial concern to researchers working in industry. For each technique covered, they provide expert guidance on method selection, sample preparation, troubleshooting, data handling and analysis, and more. Adhering principally to mid-IR molecular spectroscopic techniques, they clearly describe the guiding principles behind, characteristics of, and suitable applications for transmission spectroscopy, reflectance spectroscopies, photoacoustic spectroscopy, infrared and Raman microspectroscopy, fiber optic techniques, and emission spectroscopy.
Modern Techniques in Applied Molecular Spectroscopy is an indispensable working resource for analytical scientists and technicians working in an array of industries.

Molecular spectroscopy encompasses an array of analytical techniques used to analyze chemicals, pharmaceutical compounds, polymers and rubbers, metals, foods and beverages, pigment products, household and personal care products, semiconductors, and paper and pulp products. Increasingly sophisticated spectroscopic instrumentation and highly user-friendly software, have made it easier than ever to properly use spectroscopic analysis in a range of fields, and to better interpret and apply the resulting data. This practical guide provides the otherwise untrained user with the knowledge needed to use appropriate molecular spectroscopy techniques in lab. analysis, and shows how to intelligently interpret the results.About the Author:
