Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This book provides a readable yet rigorous introduction to analytical methods with a focus on problem-solving skills. It stresses the fundamental concepts of chemical analysis and, through examples from current journals and other science media, shows how the principles and practice of analytical chemistry are used to produce answers to questions in all areas of scientific study and practice. Features a balance of topics that is closer to contemporary analytical practice than those covered by other books. Introduces the tools that are ubiquitous in analytical chemistry e.g., statistics, sampling and sample preparation. Discusses methods depending on chemical kinetics which are so widely used in medicine and biology. Features a number of problems that call for the use of a speadsheet to generate data, which is then plotted to show trends. Includes answers for all numerical problems in an appendix.
