Download Area for Lecturers: www.thieme.de/specials/hmz_en.html This book provides the necessary equipment for the application of spectroscopic methods in organic chemistry, as required as part of chemistry courses in all universities. The following methods are explained and examples given: UV/Vis Spectroscopy, derivative Spectroscopy, chirooptical methods CD and ORD. Aggregated molecules, charge transfer complexes, conjugated oligomers. Infrared IR and Raman Spectroscopy, Fourier transform IR spectroscopy, and GC/IRcombination methods. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy NMR, 1H-, 13C-, 19F-, 15N- and 31P-NMR, spin decoupling, triple resonance, INDOR difference spectroscopy, 2D- and 3D-NMR, COSY, TOCSY, ROESY and NOESY spectra, NOE, INEPT, and DEPT technique, DEPTQ, HETCOR, HRMAS, INADEQUATE and lanthanide shift reagents, simulation and calculation of spectra, and the combination of separation and NMR methods. The new 2D NMR techniques TOCSY, HMQC and HMBC, more examples and a guide to completely assign all 1H and 13C NMR signals of a given substrate. Mass spectrometry MS, electron impact and chemical ionization EI and CI, fast atom bombardment FAB, electrospray and thermospray ionization ESI and TSI, MS/MS technique MSn, field ionization and field desorption FI and FD, atmospheric pressure chemical ionization APCI, MALDI TOF technique, GC/MS, LC/MS, and HPLC-UVDAD-APCI combination MS/MS technique. Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance MS FT-ICR-MS. The layout and many tables help to introduce the reader to spectroscopy.The extensive and thorough approach makes the text the first choice both as a companion for the professional chemists and as a refresher course in practical spectroscopy. The second English edition is a translation of the 7th German edition, in which several major alterations and didactic improvements have been made.
