Publisher Comments:

Gain an understanding of the latest advances in spectroscopy with the text that has set the unrivaled standard for more than 30 years: Pavia/Lampman/Kriz/Vyvyan's INTRODUCTION TO SPECTROSCOPY, 4e. This comprehensive resource provides an unmatched systematic introduction to spectra and basic theoretical concepts in spectroscopic methods that create a practical learning resource whether you're an introductory student or someone who needs a reliable reference text on spectroscopy. This well-rounded introduction features updated spectra; a modernized presentation of one-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy; the introduction of biological molecules in mass spectrometry; and inclusion of modern techniques alongside DEPT, COSY, and HECTOR. Count on this book's exceptional presentation to provide the comprehensive coverage you need to understand today's spectroscopic techniques.

About the Author

Donald L. Pavia is Professor of Chemistry at Western Washington University. He earned his B.S. degree in chemistry from Reed College, Portland, Oregon and his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut. In 1970 he joined the faculty at Western Washington University as an assistant professor, and now holds the rank of Professor. Other interests include the use of computers in teaching organic chemistry, both for lecture presentation and for the simulation of laboratories. Professor Pavia is the author of several computer programs. His research interests center on the synthesis and reactions of valence tautomeric and photochromic compounds, especially pyrylium-3-oxide tautomers. Autoxidations are a special interest. Outside interests include classical music, opera, woodworking, metalworking, and collecting antique trains. He and his wife Neva-Jean have three children.
