Providing a balanced overview of the fundamental theory and instrumentation relating to NIR spectroscopy, this reference introduces the material in a readily comprehensible manner. A considerable part of the text is dedicated to practical applications, including sample preparation and investigations of polymers, textiles, drugs, food and animal feed. However, such special topics as two-dimensional correlation analysis are also covered in separate chapters. Written by eight experts from different fields, this is an invaluable companion for spectroscopists and practitioners applying this indispensable tool in their daily work.
