Abstract. This investigation was aimed to determine and investigate the bimolecular composition of the liver of freshwater fish Oreochromis mossambicus by using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The spectrum of liver tissue is quite complex and contains several bands arising from the contribution of different functional groups belonging to proteins, lipids and other biomolecules. The spectral analysis showed variations in composition of bio molecules of the liver samples at a wave number region of 4000–400 cm–1. These are observed in different liver samples of O. mossambicus. The total protein content of the liver samples was found to lie between 12.42 µg/µL to 18.5 µg/µL.
Key words: FTIR, Oreochromis mossambicus, AAS, UV spectroscopy, liver, biochemical content.
