Synopses & Reviews
Practical and up-to-date, it incorporates some theoretical background material necessary to understand vibrational spectroscopy principles in addition to computational methods, instrumental aspects, novel developments and a number of detailed examples for vibrational spectra interpretations. Features a chapter on biological applications of vibrational spectroscopy and one devoted to a new branch of vibrational spectroscopy carried out with circularly polarized light.
