The combination of spectroscopy and theory has developed considerably in the past two decades. Computational techniques and theoretical analysis to extract electronic structure information from spectroscopy has become a crucial aspect of modern research in chemistry and materials science.
This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date resource on spectroscopic methods used in transition metal chemistry and explains the relationships between experimental techniques and electronic structure. Chapters cover topics including computational chemistry; ligand field theory; magnetochemistry; and optical, vibrational, NMR and EPR spectroscopy.
Edited and written by world experts in the field, this unique volume is valuable to students of all levels and serves as a reference for researchers in physical inorganic chemistry, (bio)inorganic chemistry and spectroscopy.
