"…this book provides a wealth of information in a wide variety of sample preparation techniques. This could be very useful to someone developing a new method or modifying an existing one." (Inside Laboratory Management, July/August 2004)
"There is quite a mixture of analytical isolation techniques covered in this volume. Every analyst will find something of interest in its pages." (Clinical Chemistry, August 2004)
"…covers some of the more important and widely used sample preparation techniques that are crucial to the measurement process." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 126, No. 5)
"…a well-written book useful for a professional chemistry collection, or a personal office collection…" (E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 4)
“...clearly outlines the accepted and preferred practices needed in a modern analytical laboratory...an excellent resource...it should be kept nearby as a resource in any serious analytical lab...essential.” (Choice, Vol. 41, No. 8, April 2004)
"This monograph provides a solid and practical overview with depth on this important topic...the book would be very useful to individual analysts, biochemists, environmental scientists, and material scientists, and should certainly be recommended for addition to almost any library collection." (Journal of Chemical Education, February 2004)
From the Back Cover
A groundbreaking guide devoted entirely to sample preparations
The importance of accurate sample preparation techniques cannot be overstated. Meticulous sample preparation is essential. Often overlooked, it is the midway poi nt where the analytes from the sample matrix are transformed so they are suitable for analysis. Even the best analytical techniques cannot rectify problems generated by sloppy sample pretreatment Devoted entirely to teaching and reinforcing these necessary pretreatment steps, Sample Preparation Techniques in Analytical Chemistry addresses diverse aspects of this important measurement step. , These include:
- State-of-the-art extraction techniques for organic and inorganic analytes
- Sample preparation in biological measurements
- Sample pretreatment in microscopy
- Surface enhancement as a sample preparation tool in Raman and IR spectroscopy
- Sample concentration and clean-up methods
- Quality control steps
Sample Preparation Techniques in Analytical Chemistry is an invaluable reference tool for Analytical Chemists in chemical, biological, pharmaceutical, environmental, and material sciences.
