The new edition of the popular introductory analytical chemistry textbook, providing students with a solid foundation in all the major instrumental analysis techniques currently in use

The third edition of Chemical Analysis: Modern Instrumentation Methods and Techniques provides an up-to-date overview of the common methods used for qualitative, quantitative, and structural chemical analysis. Assuming no background knowledge in the subject, this student-friendly textbook covers the fundamental principles and practical aspects of more than 20 separation and spectroscopic methods, as well as other important techniques such as elemental analysis, electrochemistry and isotopic labelling methods.

Avoiding technical complexity and theoretical depth, clear and accessible chapters explain the basic concepts of each method and its corresponding instrumental techniques--supported by explanatory diagrams, illustrations, and photographs of commercial instruments. The new edition includes revised coverage of recent developments in supercritical fluid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis, miniaturized sensors, automatic analyzers, digitization and computing power, and more. Offering a well-balanced introduction to a wide range of analytical and instrumentation techniques, this textbook:

  • Provides a detailed overview of analysis methods used in the chemical and agri-food industries, medical analysis laboratories, and environmental sciences
  • Covers various separation methods including chromatography, electrophoresis and electrochromatography
  • Describes UV and infrared spectroscopy, fluorimetry and chemiluminescence, x-ray fluorescence, nuclear magnetic resonance and other common spectrometric methods such atomic or flame emission, atomic absorption and mass spectrometry
  • Includes concise overview chapters on the general aspects of chromatography, sample preparation strategies, and basic statistical parameters
  • Features examples, end-of-chapter problems with solutions, and a companion website featuring PowerPoint slides for instructors

Chemical Analysis: Modern Instrumentation Methods and Techniques, Third Edition, is the perfect textbook for undergraduates taking introductory courses in instrumental analytical chemistry, students in chemistry, pharmacy, biochemistry, and environmental science programs looking for information on the techniques and instruments available, and industry technicians working with problems of chemical analysis.

Review of Second Edition
