Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry (Chemical Analysis: A Series of Monographs on Analytical Chemistry and Its Applications)
A bestselling classic reference, now expanded and updated to cover the latest instrumentation, methods, and applications
The Second Edition of Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry brings this core reference up to date on the uses of FT-IR spectrometers today. The book starts with an in-depth description of the theory and current instrumentation of FT-IR spectrometry, with full chapters devoted to signal-to-noise ratio and photometric accuracy. Many diverse types of sampling techniques and data processing routines, most of which can be performed on even the less expensive instruments, are then described. Extensively updated, the Second Edition: *
Discusses improvements in optical components *
Features a full chapter on FT Raman Spectrometry *
Contains new chapters that focus on different ways of measuring spectra by FT-IR spectrometry, including fourteen chapters on such techniques as microspectroscopy, internal and external reflection, and emission and photoacoustic spectrometry *
Includes a new chapter introducing the theory of vibrational spectrometry *
Organizes material according to sampling techniques
Designed to help practitioners using FT-IR capitalize on the plethora of techniques for modern FT-IR spectrometry and plan their experimental procedures correctly, this is a practical, hands-on reference for chemists and analysts. It's also a great resource for students who need to understand the theory, instrumentation, and applications of FT-IR.

This is a great reference for anyone designing or using FTIR instruments. This book is really intended for the advanced users and is worth the price. The only major drawback is that it is getting a little dated. The book is really geared to the chemist, however, additional material on alignment techniques and a more complete and jointed discussion on design trade-offs and instrument characterization would make it much more useful to other users. Bottom line: It is still a great reference
The Classic Reference on FTIR
By A Customer - August 31, 2000
This book is the Bible of FTIR, written by the twin gods of FTIR, Griffiths and DeHaseth. It contains as complete an introduction to the theory and practice of this field as is available. Anyone who wants a detailed understanding of this field, and in particular how FTIRs work, should own this book. However...there are 2 reasons why I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5.1. The book is written at a rather advanced level, and is full of mathematics. For doctorate level scientists and engineers this is fine, but it blows away anyone without the appropriate math and science background. As a result, beginners to the field are often times frustrated with this book. The book is more approriate for instrument designers and lab managers than it is for the average technician running spectra.2. The book was written in 1986, and parts of it are terribly outdated. Not surprisingly, discussions of specific computers, software, and instruments were outdated years ago... read more
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry

If you want a single book to learn how and why FT-IR spectrometers work, this is your best bet. I upgraded to the second edition because my first edition was falling apart after 20 years. I bought the print edition because I didn't like the way the Kindle edition displayed the diagrams, spectra, and other figures.
The authors are highly-regarded practitioners and professors of applied spectroscopy, and they present a wide and deep enough scope of applicable technique to provide a great deal of useful reference material. It's a most useful book. If you want another single book to learn how to interpret FT-IR spectra buy "Introduction to Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy" by Colthup, Daly, and Wiberley, another one I have used for years.
