1 - 2 weeks availability


Although vibrational spectroscopy is a critical technology within the pharmaceutical industry, currently the literature regarding its applications in the field is fragmented. At present there is no single volume that brings together the diverse aspects of vibrational spectroscopy at a level that will provide value to the dedicated spectroscopist as well as to the synthetic, development and medicinal based chemists, alike. This volume aims to present key themes, established and emerging, within current research as well as presenting detailed contributions on the instrumentation, methodology, data treatment, and applications associated within this area of research. It will provide a consolidated "road map" to the practice of this science within the industry.
