Over the last 30 years, Dr. Nikita V. Chukanov has collected IR spectra of about 2000 mineral species, including 247 holotype samples. In this book, he presents 3309 spectra of these minerals with detailed description and analytical data for reference samples. In the course of this work, about 150 new mineral species have been discovered. After an introductory chapter, infrared spectra of minerals are given together with the descriptions of standard samples used (occurrence, appearance, associated minerals, empirical formula etc.) and some comments. Sections are organized according to different classes of compounds (silicates, phosphates, arsenates, oxides etc.).

MEDIA REVIEWS

"IR spectroscopy is very important in modern mineralogy, where it serves as both an excellent diagnostic tool and sensitive method for studying the intricate features of various substances including poor-crystalline solids. Though high-quality IR spectra can now be obtained using cheap, easily accessible instruments, the remaining problem was the lack of a comprehensive reference book or database with IR spectra of minerals based on reliable standards. As such, this book presents this long-awaited resource for specialists in mineralogy, crystal chemistry and inorganic materials." Igor V. Pekov, Moscow State University, Russia
