IR 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.
2016 COURSE OFFERINGS:
Interpretation of Infrared and Raman Spectra • June 13 - 17, 2016 Presented at The University of Warwick, Coventry, United Kingdom
For the first time in more than thirty years we are pleased to offer our course on infrared and Raman spectral interpretation this summer in the UK at the University of Warwick. This course is based on our popular interpretation course taught annually in Maine (below) but includes additional lectures on polymers.
Interpretation of Infrared and Raman Spectra • July 11 - 15, 2016 Presented at Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine, U.S.A.
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.
