  • Display more than 3000 IR spectra of more than 2000 mineral species collected during last 30 years (5-6 times more than in any existing handbook or database)
  • Includes full descriptions and analytical data of each sample for which IR spectrum was obtained
  • Includes description of 140 holotypes of new minerals discovered by the author or with his participation
  • Useful for mineralogists and specialists in inorganic materials

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. This book presents spectra of each mineral together with a description and comments on standard samples used (occurrence, appearance, associated minerals, empirical formula etc.). Sections are organized according to different classes of compounds (silicates, phosphates, arsenates, oxides etc.).
