Compiled by the editor of Dekker’s distinguished Chromatographic Science series, this reader-friendly reference is as a unique and stand-alone guide for anyone requiring clear instruction on the most frequently utilized analytical instrumentation techniques. More than just a catalog of commercially available instruments, the chapters are written from the standpoint of instrumentation as it is in use today, with an introductory description of the technique(s) and a theoretical treatment of the science and technology, wherever it is applicable or where it will facilitate an understanding of the instrumentation.

Helps researchers and specialists select the most appropriate technique for their particular application.


“…it would be difficult for a reader not to find a chapter of interest. …Photoacoustic spectroscopy provided some very interesting detailed examples… For me, it is these examples that bring a technique to life. … In summary, I certainly see this book as a useful addition to a library’s reference section and particularly valuable for students studying modern instrumental analytical techniques.”

— Chromatographia, Vol. 64, no. 9/10, 2006

“This is a practical reference handbook… …provides excellent descriptions about specific instrumental techniques and references dealing with more in-depth theory and methods. …The information is well-illustrated, and each of the chapters give the reader a good basic understanding on how the technique works, various measurement methods and a list of applications and practical considerations… …this is a must-have reference book.”

— IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Vol. 22, no. 4, August 2006

“…the book provides a detailed description of the most frequently utilized analytical instrumental techniques and it can be a unique resource not only to the students and academicians but also the researchers working in the area of analytical techniques.”

Carbohydrate Polymers, 2006

“This book conveniently gathers in one place a wealth of information aimed at making chemists who are involved in organic synthesis more aware of the many photochemical methods that can be synthetically useful in the construction of molecules, including those of structural complexity. The editors and the authors have succeeded admirably in fulfilling this objective. … [A] valuable resource to the community of chemists involved in organic synthesis.”

— JACS, Vol. 127, No. 32

“This is a very comprehensive treatment of analytical instrumentation.”


“Covering a wide variety of topics in depth, [this book] is an excellent resource for anyone who wants an advanced introduction to a variety of analytical methods. … Every analytical laboratory should have a handbook of this type! Analytical chemistry is a field with great breadth, and the need to access information about the many available techniques is very common. This book clearly serves that market well.”

— Journal of Chemical Education, Vol. 82, No. 9

“Covering a wide variety of topics in depth, it is an excellent resource for anyone who wants an advanced introduction to a variety of analytical methods. … [T]he book is a solid and authoritative reference across the board.”

— Chemical Education Today

“This reference provides useful information about specific instrumental techniques used in analytical chemistry, complete with key references to the literature for further inquiry.”


“There are 31 chapters, including eight new ones, and they are rich in information. … The book is generally well produced and should prove useful to analytical chemists.”

— Journal of Raman Spectroscopy

“This is a remarkable book. The main impression it [leaves] is that of the completeness of the techniques used in chemical analysis. … This book is a valuable new source of information describing the latest developments in analytical techniques for scientists working within the field of analytical chemistry. … This book is highly recommended for advanced undergraduate students of analytical chemistry. It is a must for researchers in the field of analytical chemistry.”

— Instrumentation Science & Technology

“…[this reference] helps professionals select the right approach and best instruments to solve specific problems in analytical chemistry.”
