This video provides a simple explanation of IR spectroscopy. It looks at 4 main areas and these are as follows: -
1. IR radiation and converting wavelength to wavenumbers.
2. Types of bond vibrations (stretching, bending, rocking, twisting and wagging).
3. An outline of the inner working of an IR spectometer.
4. Analyzing IR spectra - Regions and Zones.
