Interactive Infrared Spectra

These pages provide interactive infrared spectra of common organic molecules. By clicking on the peaks in the spectrum, the corresponding molecule vibration is shown. The pages require Java 1.6, or better. If you experience problems, download and install and latest Java plugin. Alternatively, the pages are also available (for Internet Explorer only) using the Chime plugin.

Currently, the following set of molecules is available. If you would like to see a particular molecule on these pages, please contact us, preferably with a set of molecular coordinates.
