From the Back Cover
The Handbook of Green Analytical Chemistry provides a comprehensive overview of the present state and recent developments in green chemical analysis. A series of detailed chapters, written by international specialists in the field, discuss the fundamental principles of green analytical chemistry and present a catalogue of tools for developing environmentally friendly analytical techniques.
Topics covered include:
- Concepts: Fundamental principles, education, laboratory experiments and publication in green analytical chemistry.
- The Analytical Process: Green sampling techniques and sample preparation, direct analysis of samples, green methods for capillary electrophoresis, chromatography, atomic spectroscopy, solid phase molecular spectroscopy, derivative molecular spectroscopy and electroanalytical methods.
- Strategies: Energy saving, automation, miniaturization and photocatalytic treatment of laboratory wastes.
- Fields of Application: Green bioanalytical chemistry, biodiagnostics, environmental analysis and industrial analysis.
This advanced handbook is a practical resource for experienced analytical chemists who are interested in implementing green approaches in their work.
