Free Download Introduction to Spectroscopy (Fourth Edition) written by Donald L. Pavia, Gary M. Lampman, George S. Kriz and James R. Vyvyan and published by Brooks/Cole, Cengage Learning in 2009.

Pavia/Lampman/Kriz/Vyvyan’s Introduction to Spectroscopy, 4e, is a comprehensive resource that provides an unmatched, systematic introduction to spectra and basic theoretical concepts in spectroscopic methods that creates a practical learning resource, whether you’re an introductory student or someone who needs a reliable reference text on spectroscopy.

This well-rounded introduction features updated spectra, a modernized presentation of one-dimensional Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, the introduction of biological molecules in mass spectrometry, and inclusion of modern techniques alongside DEPT, COSY, and HECTOR. Count on this book’s exceptional presentation to provide the comprehensive coverage needed to truly understand today’s spectroscopic techniques.

This fourth edition of Introduction to Spectroscopy contains some important changes. The discussion of coupling constant analysis in Chapter 5 has been significantly expanded. Long-range couplings are covered in more detail, and multiple strategies for measuring coupling constants are presented. Most notably, the systematic analysis of line spacings allows students (with a little practice) to extract all of the coupling constants from even the most challenging of first-order multiplets. Chapter 5 also includes an expanded treatment of group equivalence and diastereotopic systems.

Discussion of solvent effects in NMR spectroscopy is discussed more explicitly in Chapter 6. A new section on determining the relative and absolute stereochemical configuration with NMR has also been added to this chapter.

The mass spectrometry section (Chapter 8) has been completely revised and expanded in this edition, starting with more detailed discussion of a mass spectrometer’s components. All of the common ionization methods are covered, including chemical ionization (CI), fast-atom bombardment (FAB), matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI), and electrospray techniques.

Different types of mass analyzers are described as well. Fragmentation in mass spectrometry is discussed in greater detail, and several additional fragmentation mechanisms for common functional groups are illustrated. Numerous new mass spectra examples are also included.

Problems have been added to each of the chapters. We have included some more solved problems, so that students can develop skill in solving spectroscopy problems.
