ABSTRACT:
Spectroscopy is often used in physical and analytical chemistry for the identification of substances through the spectrum emitted from or absorbed by them. Spectroscopy is also heavily used in astronomy and remote sensing. Most large telescopes have spectrometers, which are used either to measure the chemical composition and physical properties of astronomical objects or to measure their velocities from the Doppler Shift of their spectral lines.
UV-Visible spectroscopy is a form of Absorption spectroscopy. Absorption spectroscopy in the UV-Visible region is to be one of the oldest and most frequently employed technique in pharmaceutical analysis for qualitative, quantitative and structural analysis of a substance in solution. The substance is analyzed by studying the spectrum produced by it due to absorption of certain wavelengths of UV-Visible light.
Spectroscopically, visible light behaves in a similar way as UV light. Hence, the techniques of UV spectroscopy and Visible spectroscopy are studied together.

1. INTRODUCTION:
The spectrophotometer has well been called the workhorse of the modern laboratory. In particular, ultraviolet andvisible spectrophotometer is the method of choice in most laboratories concerned with the identification and measurement of organic and inorganic compounds in a wide range of products and processes - in nucleic acids and proteins, foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals and fertilizers, in mineral oils and in paint. In every branch of molecular biology, medicine and the life sciences, the spectrophotometer is an essential aid to both research and routine control. Modern spectrophotometers are quick, accurate and reliable and make only small demands on the time and skills of the operator. However, the user who wants to optimize the functions of his instrument and to be able to monitor its performance in critical areas will need to understand the elementary physics of the absorption process as well as the basic elements of spectrophotometer design.

2. SPECTROSCOPY

Definition:
Spectroscopy is defined as the study of interaction of EMR with matter. It is used for analysis of wide range of samples.

Spectrum:
A plot of the response as a function of wavelength or more commonly frequency is referred to as a spectrum.

Spectrometry:
It is the measurement of these responses and an instrument which performs such measurements is a spectrometer or spectrograph,

Common types:

•      Fluorescence spectroscopy

•      X-ray spectroscopy and crystallography

•      Flame spectroscopy

1- Atomic emission spectroscopy

2- Atomic absorption spectroscopy

3- Atomic fluorescence spectroscopy

•      Plasma emission spectroscopy

•      Spark or arc emission spectroscopy

•      UV/VIS spectroscopy

•      IR spectroscopy

•      Raman spectroscopy

•      NMR spectroscopy

•      Photo thermal spectroscopy

•      Thermal infra-red spectroscopy

•      Mass Spectroscopy

3. UV- VISIBLE SPECTROSCOPY:
Spectroscopically, visible light behaves in a similar way as UV light.  Hence, the techniques of UV spectroscopy and Visible  spectroscopy are studied together.

The UV-Visible spectroscopy is concerned with the UV & Visible  regions of the EMR which ranges between 200-800nm.

UV wavelength range is 200-400 nm.

Visible region wavelength range is 400-800 nm.
