UV-visible spectrophotometer. The ultraviolet absorption spectrum of molecules is the absorption spectrum produced by the electron energy level transition after some groups in molecules absorb the ultraviolet radiation. It is a band spectrum that reflects information about some of the groups in the molecule. Qualitative analysis can be carried out by standard optical atlas in combination with other methods. According to Lambert-Beer law: A = εbc, (A is absorbance, ε is molar absorbance coefficient, b is liquid pool thickness, c is solution concentration), the solution can be quantitatively analyzed.
