Book Description

This bestselling textbook provides students and users of analytical instrumentation with an understanding of these instruments, covering all major fields of instrumentation. Each chapter provides a discussion of the fundamental principles underlying the techniques, descriptions of the instrumentation, and numerous applications. The chapters also contain updated bibliographies and problems, and most have suggested experiments appropriate to the techniques. This updated edition is ideal for teaching undergraduates and those with no analytical chemistry background how today’s instrumentation works and its uses and limitations.

Selling Points

  • Covers the latest developments in UPLC and hyphenated techniques.
  • Provides detailed coverage of sampling, sample handling, sample storage, and sample preparation.
  • Expands coverage of Surface Analysis
