The development of the laser and its application as a source for the excitation of Raman spectra have resulted in the availability of Raman spectrophotometers at a cost competitive with ir spectroscopy. Quantitative analysis is a natural application. Procedures utilized with the conventional mercury lamp excitation and problems associated with laser excitation are reviewed. A bibliography of analyses is included.
