The Molecular Spectroscopy Group

The MSG is an interest group of the Royal Society of Chemistry in the UK.

Our spectroscopic interests include (but are not limited to):

  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy

  • Mass Spectrometry (MS)

  • Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS)

  • Infrared (IR), Near-Infrared (NIR)

  • Terahertz Spectroscopy

  • UV/Vis Spectroscopy

  • Fluorescence Spectroscopy

  • EPR/ESR Spectroscopy

  • Raman Spectroscopy

  • And others...

The group works together with the RSC, RSC interest groups and external organisations to deliver scientific meetings covering the latest advances in the field of Molecular Spectroscopy.
