This subject comprises the basic terms, related to the molecular structure analysis and surface analysis. It brings a survey of individual techniques and offered information. Techniques of the surface analysis and imaging, including the scanning probe (near-field) microanalysis, are the second key part of this survey. In some cases it is an extension of knowledge gained in the basic courses of Analytical chemistry I and II.


1. Fundamental terms
2. Structure and geometry of molecules
3. Symmetry, point groups
4. Linear and circular polarized electromagnetic radiation, chirooptical methods
5. Infrared and Raman spectroscopy
6. Microwave spectroscopy
7. NMR spectrometry
8. Mass spectrometry
9. Crystal structure
10. X-ray and electron diffraction
