Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 6)


Coblentz [1] used water as a solvent for some infrared spectroscopic work as early as 1905. Gore, Barnes, and Petersen [2] published IR spectra of aqueous solutions of some amino acids in 1949. Plyler and Acquista [3] in 1954 published spectra of pure water, in which the region from about 6.5 to 10 μ had sufficient transmittance to suggest the use of water for quantitative analytical work.
