Volume 1 consists of the text and explanations for the infrared and Raman spectral atlases contained in volumes 2 (Raman spectra) and 3 (infrared spectra). Volume 4 consists of infrared spectra of inorganic compounds (3500-45cm-1), including explanations. Each volume includes a numerical and alphabetical index.
Volume 1 discusses methods and interpretations, volume 2 includes near infrared spectra, and volume 3 includes infrared and Raman spectra. Spectra are arranged by wavenumber and transmittance and indexed numerically and alphabetically.
Includes compounds whose infrared spectra were indexed by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Spectral Data System. Provides references to published spectra in Sadtler and other catalogs as well as journal articles.
An introduction designed to assist with the interpretation or examination of infrared and Raman spectra. Charts included in the introduction aid with determining which classes of compounds are absent or present by the absence or presence of absorption bands in particular regions
