liquid chromatography (HPLC) and capillary electrophoresis (CE).
- offers an excellent tutorial review of theoretical spectroscopy. Beginning
with an overview of the quantum physical interpretation of the molecule, the
tutorial goes on to develop a theoretical basis for the application of the wave
function to the phenomena detected and encountered by spectroscopy at the
