Interpretive spectroscopy provides a basis for the establishment of cause-and-effect relationships between NIR spectrometer response and the chemical properties of the samples. Without established cause-effect relationships, the measured data has no true predictive significance. This interpretive process is key for achieving an analytical understanding of the measurement.

In the expanded second edition of Practical Guide and Spectral Atlas for Interpretive Near-Infrared Spectroscopy, the authors include new research, editorials, supplements, and molecular structural formulas, along with updated references and information on NIR spectra. The thoroughly updated and revised second edition offers a full library of color spectra in a larger format to ensure clarity and reader comprehension.

Providing a rich set of reference information required to interpret NIR spectra for research and industrial applications, this book:

  • Offers more than 300 figures representing all the major functional groups and their NIR frequency ranges
  • Contains over 120 pages of tables and charts illustrating overlapping spectra
  • Covers NIR spectra for organic compounds, including alkanes, carboxylic acids, amines, dienes, alkynes, heterocyclic compounds, amino acids, and aldehydes
  • Provides comprehensive appendices with spectra-structure correlations, example spectra, and other useful data for interpreting NIR spectra
