Contents Notes
Introduction to analytical chemistry -- Basic chemical analysis tool : description and use -- Solution preparation -- Wet methods and applications -- Instrumental methods : general discussion -- Molecular spectroscopy -- Atomic spectroscopy -- Analytical separations -- Gas chromatography -- High performance liquid chromatography -- Electroanalytical methods -- Automation -- Data handling and error analysis. Analytical Chemistry Refresher Manual provides a comprehensive refresher in techniques and methodology of modern analytical chemistry. Topics include sampling and sample preparation, solution preparation, and discussions of wet and instrumental methods of analysis; spectrometric techniques of UV, vis, and IR spectroscopy; NMR, mass spectrometry, and atomic spectrometry techniques; analytical separations, including liquid-liquid extraction, liquid-solid extraction, instrumental and non-instrumental chromatography, and electrophoresis; and basic theory and instrument design concepts of gas chromatography and high-performance liquid chromatography. The manual also covers automation, potentiometric and voltammetric techniques, and the detection and accounting of laboratory errors. Analytical Chemistry Refresher Manual will benefit all laboratory workers, water and wastewater professionals, and academic researchers who are looking for a readable reference covering the fundamentals of modern analytical chemistry.
