Description

Organic Structural Spectroscopy authoritatively presents the fundamentals of all four principal spectroscopic methods: nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, infrared spectroscopy, and ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy. Each topic is examined in depth by an experienced author who is a practicing expert in that area. The material is easy to grasp, beginning at the most elementary level and progressing to the level required for organic research. Among many other enhancements, the Second Edition offers an entirely new discussion of mass spectrometry, with comprehensive coverage of new ionization and fragmentation methods, and treatment of NMR from the basics to advanced 2D methods. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
