Product Description

Book Description

This introductory text describes the uses of the four spectroscopic methods: UV, IR, NMR, and mass spectra in organic chemistry. New material includes extended coverage of 2-D NMR spectra and the introduction of the powerful techniques of TOCSY (Total Correlation Spectrscopy), ESI (Electrospray Ionization) and MALDI (Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption). This edition also includes more worked examples and problems in the structure determination of small and large molecules.

From the Publisher

Includes more worked examples and problems for the structure determination of organic molecules
Provides a point of reference for the interpretation of IR, UV, NMR, and mass spectra

Format: Paperback
The aim of this book is to explain different methods of spectroscopy, from how they work to how to read the spectra. It goes through IR, H and C NMR, UV and so on. Many consider this to be the best book on spectroscopy and it has earned itself quite a reputation. It's also useful for postgraduates because it's more than just a teaching aid; it has many tables inside outlining where you might find that IR peak for a particular functional group or what the chemical shift of something is. On the other hand, if you want a reference text and that's all then there are probably better books than this. I gave this book 4 stars and not 5 mainly because it lies somewhere between a teaching aid and a reference text and despite it being very useful and worth getting, it excells at neither. I'd recommend it.

Possibly the most useful textbook I've ever bought. It's perfect for assigning peaks on mass spec, NMR, IR and others. Its been a great help throughout my chemistry degree. I'm only sorry I didn't buy it sooner.

Format: Paperback
This was sometimes short on a few analytical theory but most definitely worth owning due to its broad reviews and notes on the different organic chemical analyses
