Structures of starting and product molecules differ in a way that makes infrared spectroscopy an appropriate analytical tool to establish identity of the product (and a rough indication of its purity) Have previously done absorption spectroscopy of food dyes ( visible and ultraviolet ). Absorption of light in infrared region is primarily due to VIBRATION OF MOLECULES.
