Since Herschel discovered light in the near-infrared region as early as 1800. The NIR region of the electromagnetic spectrum, once regarded as having little potential for analytical work, has now become one of the most promising techniques for molecular spectroscopy in several analytical fields. Over the last three decades, the development of new applications of infrared spectroscopy has been associated with the increased power of computers and the progress in chemometrics (multivariate data analysis).

Infrared Spectroscopy: Theory, Developments and Applications introduces and presents several novel applications of NIR and mid infrared (MIR) spectroscopy in biology, medicine, food science, pharmaceutical, polymers, minerals and art for the first time in a single book. Infrared Spectroscopy: Theory, Developments and Applications is written by an international panel of scientists with a vast expertise in the field of infrared spectroscopy, providing unique views and perspectives on both practical and theoretical applications. This book should serve as a reference source for undergraduate and postgraduate students, scientists and researchers in the field of infrared spectroscopy. (Imprint: Nova)
