Rotational Analysis of FTIR Spectra from Cigarette Smoke: An Application of Chem Spec II Software in the Undergraduate Laboratory
Ford, Alan R.; Burns, William A.; Reeve, Scott W.
Journal of Chemical Education, v81 n6 p865-867 Jun 2004
A version of the classic gas phase infrared experiment was developed for students at Arkansas State University based on the shortcomings of the rotationally resolved infrared experiment. Chem Spec II is a noncommercial Windows-based software package developed to aid in the potentially complicated problem of assigning quantum numbers to observed spectral lines.
