Infrared spectroscopy (AS and A2 organic analysis)

[This topic is relevant to AS and A2 organic analysis topics] Bonds in a molecule absorb infrared radiation at characteristic wavenumbers. ‘Fingerprinting’ allows identification of a molecule by comparison of spectra. The link between absorption of infrared radiation by bonds in CO2, methane and water vapour and global warming. Assessment and practical opportunities Students should be able to use infrared spectra and the Chemistry Data
