Modeling IR of adsorbed molecules

Submitted by Joanne Stewart / Hope College on Mon, 02/25/2013 - 12:23

Dear VIPEr folks,

A student asked me about IR spectroscopy of adsorbed molecules and I don't have any experience with this. In particular, he's in my computational chemistry class right now and wondered if he could predict the IR behavior of adsorbed species. This is NOT my area of expertise and I'm wondering if someone could point us in a direction to start learning about this.

Thanks, Joanne

Anyone know a good, fundamental resource that would lay out the basics of EPR for someone trying to use the technique for the first time? Something that starts assuming genchem/intro inorganic levels of knowledge would be ideal!
