Infrared spectroscopy 1 introduction as noted in a previous chapter, the light our eyes see is but a small part of a broad spectrum of electromagnetic radiation on the immediate high energy side of the visible spectrum lies the ultraviolet, and on the low energy side is the infrared. Spectroscopy / s p ɛ k ˈ t r ɒ s k ə p i / is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation historically, spectroscopy originated through the study of visible light dispersed according to its wavelength, by a prismlater the concept was expanded greatly to include any interaction with radiative energy as a function of its wavelength or frequency.
Theory an invaluable tool in organic structure determination and verification involves the class of electromagnetic (em) radiation with frequencies between 4000 and 400 cm-1 (wavenumbers) the category of em radiation is termed infrared (ir) radiation, and its application to organic chemistry known as ir spectroscopy.
Coherent two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy (2d ir) uses a series of ir femtosecond laser pulses to pump and then probe the response of a system, making it possible to learn much more about the structure and dynamics of molecules than can be seen with one-dimensional ir spectroscopy.

Infrared spectroscopy (ir spectroscopy or vibrational spectroscopy) involves the interaction of infrared radiation with matter it covers a range of techniques, mostly based on absorption spectroscopy as with all spectroscopic techniques, it can be used to identify and study chemicals samples may be solid, liquid, or gas. Thus ir spectroscopy involves collecting absorption information and analyzing it in the form of a spectrum -- the frequencies at which there are absorptions of ir radiation (peaks or signals) can be correlated directly to bonds within the compound in question.

Infrared spectroscopy infrared spectroscopy is an absorptive method that depends upon changes in permanent dipole moments during excitation while raman spectroscopy monitors small shifts in the frequency of scattered light due to interactions with different vibrational modes which involve alterations in bond polarizability.

- [voiceover] if you shine infrared light on a molecule, it's possible for the molecule to absorb energy from the light energy from the light can cause a bond to stretch we call that a stretching vibration. Infrared spectroscopy infrared spectroscopy is the measurement of the wavelength and intensity of the absorption of mid-infrared light by a sample mid-infrared is energetic enough to excite molecular vibrations to higher energy levels. Absorption of infrared radiation brings about changes in molecular vibrations within molecules and 'measurements' of the ways in which bonds vibrate gives rise to infrared spectroscopy.
