6.   References for terminology

1.   Banwell, C. N., Fundamentals of Molecular Spectroscopy, McGraw-Hill, New York, 1994. Informative and relatively readable. Relatively light on instrumentation. Better for background.

2.   Christian, Gary D., Analytical Chemistry, 6th Ed., Wiley, New York, 2003. Most college textbooks of analytical chemistry present spectrometry. This one is good and fairly recent.

3.    Constantin, E., and Schnell, A., Mass Spectrometry, Ellis Horwood, New York, 1990. (Translation of Spectrométrie de masse, 1986, by M. Thomson, University of Reading). As the authors say, they have "assembled in condensed form the basic  essentials and the fields of application". A good introduction with many explanatory  drawings.

4.    Parker, Sybil S., Ed., Spectroscopy Source Book, McGraw-Hill, New York, 1988. Apparently a compilation of articles from the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology. It covers, briefly, almost all the theory and practice of spectroscopy. First choice as a broad general reference on spectrometry.

5.   Willard, H. H., Merritt, L. L., Dean, John a., and Settle, F. A., Jr.: Instrumental Methods of Analysis, Wadsworth, Belmont, CA, 7th Ed., 1988. Not as broad as [4], but more attention to instruments, with several other techniques. First choice on chemical instrumentation.
