IR Courses, Inc. (Infrared and Raman Courses, Inc.) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, registered in the State of Georgia, that exists solely to provide continuing education resources for vibrational spectroscopy. The corporation provides the financial resources to promote future courses, in the form of advertising and the dissemination of materials pertinent to the courses. In effect, the corporation is an endowment to the scientific community to ensure that continuing educational resources exist to provide instruction in vibrational spectroscopy.
2019 COURSE OFFERING:
Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy I. • September 30 - October 4, 2019
Interpretation of Infrared and Raman Spectra
Infrared spectroscopy is the most popular and cost effective technique for the structural elucidation of relatively simple organic molecules as well as many polymers. The ability to interpret infrared spectra and hence to identify the presence or absence of organic functional groups and their surrounding environment is vital to anyone who uses an infrared spectrometer. Raman spectroscopy is an important complement to infrared spectroscopy and it will be shown how Raman spectra give structural information not readily accessible from the infrared.
IR Courses, Inc. is an affiliate of the Coblentz Society: The Coblentz Society is a non-profit organization founded in 1954. Its purpose is to foster the understanding and application of vibrational spectroscopy. The Coblentz Society is a technical affiliate of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy.
