This Primer covers the foundations of spectroscopy at a level suitable for first year chemistry undergraduates. Mass spectrometry, and X-ray diffraction, along with traditional spectroscopic techniques: i.r., n.m.r. and u.v. -visible spectroscopy are covered. The essential physical principles of each method are introduced, and many examples of spectral analysis provided. Problems, and further reading are also included. This Primer is designed to reflect the recent advances in the use of spectroscopic and diffraction methods, not only for obtaining an analysis of elements and groups present in a molecule but also for establishing the arrangement of the constituent atoms. These developments have had a profound effect by increasing scientific knowledge in the fields of chemistry and molecular biology, reflected in the elucidation of the structure and function of a wide range of compounds including drugs, proteins and enzymes, and nucleic acids.

A knowledge of spectroscopic methods is required to interpret the shape and structure of compounds - this informative book concentrates on their application to inorganic compounds. The emphasis is placed on obtaining and interpreting the data rather than concentrating on the theory. To this end, examples are given in the text and worked through to show the processes involved in assigning spectra and obtaining information from them. This essential text for all undergraduate chemists will also benefit postgraduate students researching in the field of inorganic chemistry.

The growth of inorganic chemistry during the last 50 years has made it difficult for the student to assimilate all the factual information available. This book is designed to help by showing how a chemist uses the Periodic Table to organize and process this mass of information. It includes a detailed discussion of the important horizontal, vertical, and diagonal trends in the properties of the atoms of the elements and their compounds. These basic principles can then be applied to more detailed problems in modern inorganic chemistry.

This book will allow students to see how the organic chemistry taught in undergraduate courses is applied by medicinal chemists in industry. Many of today's best selling drugs are first made in the chemical laboratory on a very small scale many years before they enter the market place. During the intervening period, organic chemists investigate alternative methods both to improve the overall yield of the process and to ensure that it operates safely on a manufacturing scale. This book describes briefly how each drug works and then reviews the most efficient routes to their synthesis.
