Infrared Spectroscopy: Fundamentals and Applications (Analytical Techniques in the Sciences)

Analytical Techniques in the Sciences

This series of books provides coverage of all of the major analytical techniques and their application in the most important areas of physical, life and materials science. Each text is presented in an open learning/distance learning style, in which the learning objectives are clearly identified. The reader's understanding of the material is constantly evaluated by the use of self-assessment and discussion questions. Series Editor: David J. Ando


Infrared spectroscopy is one of the most important and widely used analytical techniques available to scientists working in a whole range of fields. This book aims to provide an introduction to those needing to use infrared spectroscopy for the first time, explaining the fundamental aspects of this technique, how to obtain a spectrum and how to analyse infrared data covering a wide range of applications.

This text contains chapters covering the following aspects:

  • The background theory of infrared spectroscopy.
  • Instrumentation and sampling techniques.
  • Spectral analysis.
  • Organic molecules.
  • Inorganic molecules.
  • Polymers.
  • Biological applications.
  • Industrial applications.

Suitable questions and problems are included in each chapter to assist in the analysis and interpretation of representative infrared spectra.

This book is aimed at undergraduate and graduate chemistry students, as well as researchers in both academia and industry, and should provide a valuable addition to student coursework material and to those companies providing in-house training in the field of infrared spectroscopy.

About the Author

Barbara Stuart, B.Sc. (Sydney), M.Sc. (Sydney), Ph.D. (London), D.I.C., MRACI, MRSC, Cchem
After graduating with a B.Sc. degree from the University of Sydney in Australia, Barbara Stuart then worked as a tutor at this university. She also carried out research in the field of biophysical chemistry in the Department of Physical Chemistry and graduated with an M.Sc. in 1990. The author then moved to the UK to carry out doctoral studies in polymer engineering within the Department of Chemical Engineering and Chemical Technology at Imperial College (University of London). After obtaining her Ph.D. in 1993, she took up a position as a Lecturer in Physical Chemistry at the University of Greenwich in South East London. Barbara returned to Australia in 1995, joining the staff at the University of Technology, Sydney, where she is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemistry, Materials and Forensic Science. She is presently conducting research in the fields of polymer spectroscopy, materials conservation and forensic science. Barbara is the author of three other books published by John Wiley and Sons, Ltd, namely Modern Infrared Spectroscopy and Biological Applications of Infrared Spectroscopy, both in the ACOL series of open learning texts, and Polymer Analysis in this current AnTS series of texts.
