Description

Atomic spectroscopy techniques form an essential part of any elemental analysis laboratory. This book gathers together under one cover the most important techniques of atomic spectroscopy currently available. Each chapter presents the key principles of a technique, describes the associated instrumentation, and discusses representative applications.

Atomic Spectroscopy in Elemental Analysis begins with a chapter on method validation relevant to all of the techniques discussed later. Each chapter that follows focuses on a particular technique and was contributed by an expert in that area. Inductively coupled plasma atomic emission (ICP-AES), glow discharge optical emission (GD-OES), microwave plasma atomic emission, X-ray fluorescence (XRF), electrothermal atomic absorption, and flame atomic absorption spectroscopy all receive due attention. The final chapter on chemometrics considers experiment design, multivariate statistics, and data analysis as they apply to atomic spectroscopy.

Atomic Spectroscopy in Elemental Analysis is a one-stop resource for atomic spectroscopy techniques, instrumentation, and applications that anyone working in the field of elemental analysis will want on their reference shelf.
