The various methods of infrared spectroscopy (IR) are widely used techniques in catalysis laboratories because few physical methods can give so much information so easily on the catalyst structure, its surface properties, the interacions sorbate-sorbent, and the reaction intermediates. Indeed, the IR region (10,000 > v > 50cm−1) and particularly the middle region (4000 > v > 200cm−1) corresponds to the energies of the vibrations and rotations of the molecules. These movements depend on molecular constants such as the molecular symmetry, the interatomic strength constants, the inertia momentum around some axis.
