Modern Chemical Techniques

This book from the Royal Society of Chemistry looks at the basic theory behind the following techniques:

* Mass spectrometry
* Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy
*Infrared spectroscopy
*Ultraviolet/visible spectroscopy
*Electron microscopy
* Following a synthetic route.

This theory is explained without emphasising the mathematics and physics involved. Where appropriate descriptions of the instrumentation and sample preparation are included and these are followed by applications of the techniques. The book includes some problems (with solutions). Some advanced ideas are also included in sections that are boxed so that they are easily identified.

The book, one of a series produced by School Teacher Fellows, was researched between 1991 and 1992. Much of the information is still relevant but there are more up-to-date accounts with videos and animations on the Royal Society of Chemistry’s educational web site.
