About this book

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.).

About the authors

Dr. Nikita V. Chukanov is an world known expert in Infrared Spectroscopy applied on minerals. He discovered more than 130 new mineral species that are now approved by the IMA commission on New Minerals and Mineral Names. He also invented two original methods of IR spectroscopic analysis of materials and wrote more than 585 publications to date.

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
