Methods for Environmental Trace Analysis (0470844221) cover image
Provides the basic skills and information required to prepare an environmental sample for analysis. Divided into two sections, i.e. Inorganic Analysis and Organic Analysis, this book covers selected techniques, principally atomic spectroscopy and chromatography. Using flow diagrams to augment the experimental information, it highlights the most appropriate methods and the likely results.
  • Detailed experimental information provided in an easy-to-follow style with illustrations
  • Describes the specific sample preparation approaches necessary to analyse a particular sample type
  • Discussion of selected literature sources highlights the most appropriate methods and the likely results obtained
