Chemical Applications of Molecular Spectroscopy — A Developing Perspective

  • N. Sheppard


Chemistry is primarily concerned with the structure and transformation of matter at the molecular level. Over the past few decades the rate of progress in evaluating the results of chemical reactions has been increasingly determined by the availability of a wide range of physical methods. With major help from these techniques, whole new frontier areas of inorganic, organic and biological chemistry have been opened up with great efficiency.
