Spectral databases

List of spectral databases.

A spectra database is a collection of data that has been recorded with special spectroscopic methods. A single spectrum serves the comparison with the own data, for example, to identify a substance or elucidate a structure.

The individual databases are organized differently, some depend on the spectroscopic technique - others are ordered by classes of compounds or applications.

List of online available stectral databases for all kinds of spectroscopic techniques: NMR, IR, UV/VIS, Raman, Atomic, ESR etc.

For more information about spectroscopic methods and techniques, see spectroscopy.

Spectroscopic Methods in Organic Chemistry

Spectroscopic Methods in Organic Chemistry covers all aspects of modern spectroscopic methodology. It provides the necessary equipment for the application of spectroscopic methods in organic chemistry, as required as part of chemistry courses in all universities. The following methods are explained and examples given: UV/Vis Spectroscopy, derivative Spectroscopy, chirooptical methods CD and ORD, aggregated molecules, charge transfer complexes, conjugated oligomers Infrared (IR) and Raman Spectroscopy, Fourier transform IR spectroscopy, and GC/IR combination methods and more.

The layout and many tables help to introduce the reader to spectroscopy. The extensive and thorough approach makes the text the first choice both as a companion for the professional chemists and as a refresher course in practical spectroscopy.

Vibrational Spectroscopy in Life Science

The authors describe basic theoretical concepts of vibrational spectroscopy, address instrumental aspects and experimental procedures, and discuss experimental and theoretical methods for interpreting vibrational spectra. It is shown how vibrational spectroscopy provides information on general aspects of proteins, such as structure, dynamics, and protein folding. In addition, the authors use selected examples to demonstrate the application of Raman and IR spectroscopy to specific biological systems, such as metalloproteins, and photoreceptors. Throughout, references to extensive mathematical and physical aspects, involved biochemical features, and aspects of molecular biology are set in boxes for easier reading.
