This introductory textbook covers all the major spectroscopic techniques that cover the derivation of structural information from spectroscopic data. It incorporates over 200 carefully selected problems that are graded to develop and consolidate the students understanding of organic spectroscopy and to develop an understanding of how structures are derived.
This, the third edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and reflects the many developments in this area. It includes over 50 new problems and presents challenging examples that have been carefully selected to include all-important structural features and to emphasise connectivity arguments.
More emphasis on techniques is included in the problems and the advanced NMR topics section is expanded in the areas of decoupling and applications of the nuclear overhauser effect (nOe).
Brief and easy-to-read text providing sufficient detail of theory to be able to solve problems without going to excessive depth.
Large, graded selection of problems—from the very easy to challenging.
Provides hands-on training for the non-expert

Fast shipping, good quality
I got this book for a class. The problems in the book were much easier and gave much more information than the problems on my exams (or for real life) but it was a good book. The problems give you more hints (like MW) than you would truly get from identifying a real spectra or (for some of you) on an exam.
I had to buy this book for a Spectroscopy class, and I came to Amazon looking to see if there is an answer book too (which i don't think exists). Don't let the book discription fool you... The questions are "graded" meaning they progressively get more difficult. The questions are NOT answered, which would have been very helpful. If you are looking for a VERY BASIC explination to spectral chemistry, and a bunch of problems, get this book. If you want to really know what spectral chem is all about try "Spectrometric Identification of Organic Compounds".
