A review of methods of Molecular Spectroscopy is presented from the perspective of the experiment and theory.This is based on the principle of quantum mechanics and the same formalism is used for rotational, vibrational and electronic spectroscopy. Quantitative spectroscopic analysis is derived from the equation of radiation transfer and limits of validity of Lambert-Beerova of law are discussed. Part of it is the application of group theory. Attention is paid to the preparation of samples for different types of spectroscopy, with emphasis on the differences between samples with different origin (geological, biological, and environmental) and methods of work with portable spectrometers in the terrain and techniques of long-distance detection of molecules. Part of the teaching are laboratory tasks - Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), Raman spectroscopy of the samples in the solid phase, including natural material, Infrared spectrometry of the samples in the solid phase with the use of reflective techniques and mass spectrometry.
