This excellent book, very simply and clearly written, is an introductory survey of the main physico-chemical interlude that have been devised for the determination of molecular structures. Molecular structure, in this case, is taken to mean a knowledge of bond lengths and bond angles, or, if these cannot be determined, at least a knowledge of molecular symmetry. The emphasis throughout is on the scope and limitations of the above mentioned methods. The first methods to be considered are the spectroscopic ones, analysed as to general considerations, pure rotation spectra, and vibration-rotation spectra. Then, the diffraction methods are discussed: electron diffraction, x-ray diffraction (including determination of molecular symmetry and of molecular parameters), and neutron diffraction. Finally, miscellaneous methods are examined: classical stereochemical methods, dipole moments, magnetic methods, and nuclear magnetic resonance.
