Infrared spectroscopy (IR) is a well established analytical technique for the identification of organic molecules. In this first dedicated volume, the theory of IR is described and is then related to various biological systems. Chapters on instrumentation, sample preparation and the interpretation of spectra give the reader practical help in using the technique. A comprehensive applications chapter illustrates the diversity and power of this technique in real systems.

Books reviews
The book is worth the money. It is well written, concise, give basic aspects and some uses.
Worth the money.
Biochemical Applications of Infrared Spectroscopy, like most other ACOL (Analytical Chemistry by Open Learning) titles, is a good text for those who wish to learn the basics of FTIR as applied to the analysis of proteins, peptides, lipids, biomembranes, carbohydrates, foods, etc. The book contains chapters dedicated to instrumentation, sampling techniques, spectrum interpretation, quantitative analysis and some applications. Each chapter contains a useful set of questions (answers provided) and there are a few suggested experiments. The book is written at about a senior chemistry undergraduate level but would be useful for those wanting to learn the basics. The sections dedicated to the analysis of proteins and peptides, lipids, biomembranes and pharmaceuticals 'outshine' the others. The nice thing about this book is that it is not merely a 'rehash' of somebodys published work crammed into loosely related chapters (like many other books on the subject). A larger bibliography and references would have made the applications sections better.
