▪ Abstract 

Observations of interstellar gas-phase and solid-state species in the 2.4–200 μm range obtained with the spectrometers on board the () are reviewed. Lines and bands caused by ices, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, silicates, and gas-phase atoms and molecules (in particular H, CO, HO, OH, and CO) are summarized and their diagnostic capabilities illustrated. The results are discussed in the context of the physical and chemical evolution of star-forming regions, including photon-dominated regions, shocks, protostellar envelopes, and disks around young stars.
