Solid Phase Microextraction: Theory and Practice Janusz Pawliszyn Solid phase microextraction (SPME) is a recently proposed solvent-free sampling and sample preparation technique. SPME represents a quick, sensitive, and economical approach that can be adopted for field work and can be easily integrated with present analytical instrumentation into an automation process. Written by the inventor of the technique, Solid Phase Microextraction: Theory and Practice describes the theoretical and practical aspects of this new technology, which received an "R&D 100" Award in 1994 recognizing its invention as a major advancement in the analytical sciences. Solid Phase Microextraction: Theory and Practice, the first book on SPME, offers the reader:
* An overview of SPME technique, theory, method development, and applications;
* Experiments for beginners;
* A summary of the practical applications of SPME in environmental, food, pharmaceutical, and forensic settings;
* Material suitable for SPME courses or self-guided study.
