This volume is a collection of contributions to the FT-IR Workshop held under the auspices of the Spectroscopy Society of Canada and organ- ized by Professor Theophile Theophanides, Director of the Workshop. The gathering of leading spectroscopists and researchers at Gray Rocks to discuss .Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy was the occasion of the 29th Annual Conference of the Spectroscopy Society of Canada. The plea- sant surroundings of Gray Rocks, St-Jovite, Quebec, Canada contributed most positively to the success of the two-day Workshop held September 30, October 1, 1982. The preliminary program and the proceedings were distributed at the Workshop by Multiscience Publications Ltd. The publication of this volume provides the occasion to thank all the contributors for kindly accepting to lecture at the Workshop and for their collaboration. I thank Mr. AI. Dufresne for accepting to act as manager of the Workshop and Mrs. Susane Dufresne secretary of the Work- shop for patiently contacting all the participants and for making the necessary arrangements of registration and accomodation.

This book describes a comprehensive regression analysis to the conduct of scientific research. It outlines theoretical principals underlying the techniques utilized in regression analysis and illustrates their application on a variety of data sets.
Arising no doubt from its pre-eminence as a natural liquid, water has always been considered by chemists as the original solvent in which very varied chemical reactions can take place, both for preparational and for analytical purposes. This explains the very long-standing interest shown in the study of aqueous solutions. In this con- nection, it must be stressed that the theory of Arrhenius and Ostwald (1887-1894) on electrolytic dissociation, was originally devised solely for solutions in water and that the first true concept of acidity resulting from this is linked to the use of this solvent. The more recent development of numerous physico-chemical measurement methods has made possible an increase of knowledge in this area up to an extremely advanced degree of systematization. Thus today we have available both a very large amount of experimental data, together with very refined methods of deduction and of quantitative treatment of chemical reactions in solution which enable us to make the fullest use of this data. Nevertheless, . it appears quite evident at present that there are numerous chemical processes which cannot take place in water, and that its use as a solvent imposes 2 INTRODUCTION limitations. In order to overcome these limitations, it was natural that interest should be attracted to solvents other than water and that the new possibilities thus opened up should be explored.
Analytical techniques are powerful tools in a chemist's armoury and this book identifies some of the most important chemical techniques currently in use, along with their applications. Aimed at those with some familiarity with modern chemical techniques, as well as those completely new to them, the book covers much of the basic theory without emphasising the mathematics and physics involved. Where appropriate, descriptions of the instrumentation and sample preparation are included, as are problems with example solutions. More advanced ideas are presented in highlighted boxes, so the novice can happily skip these if desired. Modern Chemical Techniques is based on a series of 'hands-on' symposia that enabled individuals to update their chemical skills and learn about the newest methods, techniques, and instrumentation available. The resource material presented at the symposia is published here, developed and extended into an accessible, illustrated book, making the valuable information it contained available to a much wider audience.
