This volume is a collection of contributions to the FT-IR Workshop held under the auspices of the Spectroscopy Society of Canada and organ- ized by Professor Theophile Theophanides, Director of the Workshop. The gathering of leading spectroscopists and researchers at Gray Rocks to discuss .Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy was the occasion of the 29th Annual Conference of the Spectroscopy Society of Canada. The plea- sant surroundings of Gray Rocks, St-Jovite, Quebec, Canada contributed most positively to the success of the two-day Workshop held September 30, October 1, 1982. The preliminary program and the proceedings were distributed at the Workshop by Multiscience Publications Ltd. The publication of this volume provides the occasion to thank all the contributors for kindly accepting to lecture at the Workshop and for their collaboration. I thank Mr. AI. Dufresne for accepting to act as manager of the Workshop and Mrs. Susane Dufresne secretary of the Work- shop for patiently contacting all the participants and for making the necessary arrangements of registration and accomodation.
`...this book, through its breadth of coverage and accompanying extensive lists of references, would be of most benefit to current users of dispersive infrared spectroscopy who seek an appreciation of the increased potential available through ft-ir techniques.'
