The paper deals with theoretical and instrumental aspects connected with derivative spectrophotometry. Ideal absorption spectra and their derivatives from 1st to 6th order are consequently discussed. The influence of intensity and width of peaks and relative position of the bands of the analyzed substances on the quality of the derivative spectra obtained has been discussed (choice of derivative order and measurement technique). Next, the dependence of the apparatus parameters on the course of… CONTINUE READING
