The most comprehensive guide to infrared and Raman spectra of inorganic and coordination compounds-now fully revised and updated

This book has served as the definitive guide to infrared and Raman spectroscopy of inorganic and coordination compounds from the time of its first publication in 1963. The Fifth Edition consists of two self-contained volumes: Part A describes basic theories of normal vibrations and their applications to relatively simple inorganic compounds, while Part B extends them to larger and more complex systems-coordination compounds, organometallic compounds, and bioinorganic compounds.

Part B shows how one can deduce structural and bonding information from vibrational spectra. For this purpose, the compounds have been classified into each structural type, their vibrational frequencies and band assignments listed, and typical infrared/Raman spectra illustrated. Special emphasis has been placed on metal-ligand vibrations that appear in the low-frequency region. This new edition
* Incorporates new topics, including complexes of carbon dioxide and dihydrogen and metal complex-DNA interactions
* Offers many references to the latest research in the field
* Reviews all important new results obtained on the subject
* Provides many infrared and Raman spectral charts of typical compounds
* Features 156 illustrations

This is the best reference book for researchers and graduate students in this field today.

Editorial Reviews

The second of two volumes describing fundamental theories of vibrational spectroscopy and their application in a variety of fields. Shows how to deduce structural and bonding information from the spectra, with special emphasis on metal-ligand vibrations that appear in the low-frequency region. First published in 1963 and most recently 1986; adds new references and drops some found later to be wrong, extends the coverage with new subsections, and includes spectral charts of typical compounds to complement the tables. The first volume covers the theory and applications in inorganic chemistry. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
