Annotation -
The crux of this subject consists in understanding the relation between the physical basis of individual spectroscopic method or technique and their application for study of the physical-chemical properties of substances. The accent will be put on the fact that the results of individual methods are complementary and confirm each other. Interpretation of spectra will be beside the identification of compounds aimed at the study of intermolecular interactions and supramolecular structures. The description of the instrumentation will be limited to basic facts on which the applications are based.
