The Indian Adaptation of Spectrometric Identification of Organic Compounds, eighth edition of the book is reorganized, enhanced, and updated to offer complete coverage of Indian curriculum. Almost all spectroscopic techniques include updates in theory, instrumentation, and characterization of group absorptions UV-Visible Spectroscopy is now included as a part of the book. Chapter on Two-Dimensional NMR Spectroscopy is reorganized to explain 2D NMR techniques first with examples of simple molecules and then applied to analyze more complex molecules.
