Summary:"Britain and America--allies as well as rivals--shaped the first half of the twentieth century and laid the foundations of today's world. The struggle between Woodrow Wilson and David Lloyd George to determine the peace at Paris in 1919, the part played by British and American bankers in rebuilding Europe in the 1920s, the remarkable alliance between the two countries in the defeat of Nazism, their role in the origins of the Cold War and the creation of NATO are all part of the story"--Jacket, page [2].

The exponential growth in the development of Raman spectroscopy is manifest in its almost limitless industrial uses. Its preeminence as an analytical method lies in its ability to perform in situ analysis, conduct dynamic studies, work in aqueous solutions, and obtain information on samples in any physical state. Analytical Raman Spectroscopy charts, through a series of contributed articles, the spectacular versatility of the method and its applications in semiconductor characterization, synthetic organic polymer analysis, organic and petrochemical analysis, heterogeneous catalysts, and biological studies. Chapters feature an outline structure which systematically details the critical aspects of each subject discussed. Components of modern Raman spectrometers Fourier transform Raman instrumentation Quantitative analysis by Raman spectroscopy Organic and petrochemical sample handling techniques and problem solving Time-resolved studies: examples of in situ studies of reacting systems Polymer analyses Chemical applications of gas-phase Raman spectroscopy Supplemented with numerous end-of-chapter references, each chapter serves as an excellent guide to the literature in a subject area. Written in clearly illustrative language by the discipline's leading specialists, Analytical Raman Spectroscopy offers the professional analytical chemist, physicist, or researcher an authoritative in-the-lab reference to this fascinating, increasingly useful analytical method.
