A new edition of any book presents an opportunity which an author welcomes for several
reasons. It is a chance to respond to constructive criticisms of the previous edition which he
thinks are valid. New material can be introduced which may be useful to teachers and
students in the light of the way the subject, and the teaching of the subject, has developed in
the intervening years. Last, and certainly not least, there is an opportunity to correct any
errors which had escaped the author’s notice....
Infrared (IR) Spectroscopy:
– First real IR spectra measured by Abney and Festing in 1880’s
– Technique made into a routine analytical method between 1903-
1940 (especially by Coblentz at the US NBS)
– IR spectroscopy through most of the 20th century is done with
dispersive (grating) instruments, i.e. monochromators
– Fourier Transform (FT) IR instruments become common in the
1980’s, led to a great increase in sensitivity and resolution
– In 1928, C. V.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Physical chemistry" has contents: Rotational and vibrational spectroscopy, electronic spectroscopy of molecules, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, statistical mechanics, experimental kinetics and gas reactions, chemical dynamics and photochemistry,...and other contents.
Cordyceps gunnii (berk.) Berk (C. Gunnii) is well known as a Chinese rare caterpillar fungus and has similar
pharmacological activity with C. sinensis. In this work, a high-molecular-weight polysaccharide (CPS)
was isolated and purified from the mycelia of C. gunnii. The total sugar content of CPS was amounted to
92.84%. The result of HPLC indicated that CPS was a homogeneous polysaccharide. The estimated average
molecular weight of CPS was 3.72 ×106 Da. The specific rotation of CPS was recorded [˛]25

Since the advent of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, systems with amagnetic field
intensity of 1.5 tesla (T) have been deemed the gold standard for different clinical applications
in all body areas. Ongoing advances in hardware and software have made
theseMRsystems increasingly compact, powerful and versatile, leading to the development
of higher magnetic field strength MRsystems (3.0 T) for use in clinical practice
and for research purposes. As usually occurs with a new technology, 3.0 T MR
imaging units will probably follow the same development trends in the years to
O-speci®c polysaccharides (O-antigens) of the lipopolysac-charides (LPS) of Proteus penneristrains 1 and 4 were
