Book Description

This text offers an open-learning approach to Raman spectroscopy providing detail on instrumentation, applications and discussions questions throughout the book.

It provides a valuable guide to assist with teaching Raman spectroscopy which is gaining attention in (analytical) chemistry, and as a consequence, teaching programs have followed. Today, education in Raman spectroscopy is often limited to theoretical aspects (e.g. selection rules), but practical aspects are usually disregarded. With these course notes, the author hopes to fill this gap and include information about Raman instrumentation and how it is interpreted.

  • Provides a user-friendly text that tackles the theoretical background, and offers everyday tips for common practice
  • Raman instrumentation and practical aspects, which are sometimes overlooked, are covered
  • Appropriate for students, and includes summaries, text boxes, illustrating the ideas with examples from research literature or providing background information or links with other courses
  • Written with an open-learning approach, this book will be ideal for use as a self-study guide or as the basis of a taught course with discussion and self-assessment questions throughout the text
  • Includes a comprehensive bibliography to guide the reader to more specialized texts and sources.

Product Description


The book is written in the style of an introductory university lecture, each chapter beginning with a list of learning objectives, which can be later used as a quick reference guide to the chapter contents.   (Chemistry World, 1 June 2014)

From the Back Cover

Raman spectroscopy is a molecular spectroscopic technique, which in recent years has attracteda lot of attention as a versatile analytical technique, with applications in a broad range of research areas.

Practical Raman Spectroscopy: An Introduction provides the reader with:

  • background information on the technique,
  • an overview of theoretical aspects
  • explanations of possible interferences and enhancement effects.

The author walks the reader through the key components of common Raman spectroscopy instrumentation and explains the basic principles of post–processing of Raman spectra, mathematical filters, spectral interpretation, quantitative aspects, searching algorithms,
Raman mapping, etc.

The text:

  • is enhanced with practical examples from research, illustrating the broad
    field of applications
  • includes Questions and Discussion Topics, where the reader can evaluate
    their understanding
  • provides a comprehensive bibliography to guide the reader to more specialized texts and sources.

Rather than overwhelming the reader in mathematical discussions and equations, the author provides an intuitive feeling for different concepts in Raman spectroscopy. Thus, this book aims to provide an introduction to students as well as to the occasional user, who wants to gain a broader knowledge of the technique.
