Matrix Isolation Spectroscopy

The matrix isolation (MI) method has now been used for nearly thirty years. During this period it has been actively developed and the range of problems tackled greatly extended. Originally it was used for studies of transient species involv­ ing vibrational, electronic and ESR spectroscopy. Nowadays...
