What You Will Learn
Learn how to interpret an infrared spectrum to determine unknown molecular structures and to perform identities properly. The course introduces a systematic, 10-step approach to interpreting spectra, then the diagnostic infrared bands of many economically important molecules are presented. Attendees interpret many unknown spectra in class with the help of the instructor. The course includes the 260 page hardcover book Infrared Spectral Interpretation written by Dr. Brian Smith and published by CRC Press.
