Infrared Spectroscopy

by James M. Thompson

The promise of the author—to produce a pedagogic and methodological introduction to the theory and practice of modern infrared spectroscopy suitable for undergraduate and perhaps even graduate students—is realized: Thompson (emer., Alabama A&M Univ.) has the pedigree to do the job and has suitably delivered. The surprise is how familiar the work feels, mirroring classic volumes that readers of a certain age remember—names such as Shriner and Fuson, Silverstein and Bassler, Colthup, Griffiths, Nakanishi, and many others. It is nice to see a new imprint of the old time religion, modestly revisited in less than 200 crisply written, uncluttered and unblemished pages. On the whole this is a pleasing work, made more useful by accompanying problem sets and references, including a tip-of-the-hat acknowledgement of IR Tutor, that first of its kind spectroscopy software tutorial by Charles Abrams.
