  • The processes of identifying and characterizing organic compounds are of great importance to the working organic chemist. With the use of modern instrumental techniques, these tasks can now be accomplished much more readily than in the past. In this chapter, you will learn about two spectroscopic techniques (mass spectroscopy and infrared spectroscopy) that are used to identify organic compounds.
