Analytical Chemistry: A Modern Approach to Analytical Science, 2nd Edition (3527305904) cover image
Why settle for less when you can have the whole of Analytical Chemistry in a single book?
The successful all-in-one guide to modern Analytical Chemistry is now available in a new and updated edition. From the foundations of analytical science to state-of-the art techniques and instrumentation -- all you will ever need to know is explained here. The text covers both general analytical chemistry and instrumental analysis and may be used for most analytical chemistry courses offered today.
Carefully chosen worked examples show how analytical problems can effectively be solved and how calculations should be performed. Study questions and recommended reading for further study are provided for each learning unit.
The second edition has been carefully revised to keep up-to-date with advances in the technology of analytical methods in the laboratory and in the workplace, including newly written chapters on multidimensional chromatography, sensors and screening systems.
With its broad scope, the text doubles as a reliable reference for virtually all analytical problems encountered during the course of study and beyond.


"Analytical Chemistry will serve as an excellent text as well as a valued reference following completion of the student's course of study."
Journal of Medicinal Chemistry

"It is a book that should be on the shelves of all analytical chemistry and biochemistry professionals, including those who work in the areas of clinical chemistry, food chemistry and forensic chemistry."
Bulletin of the World Health Organisation

"The book is a must-have reference for anyone trying to understand what techniques and technologies are available for the analytical chemist today."

Jean-Michel Mermet is Research Director at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). In 1985, he was appointed Director of the Laboratory of Analytical Sciences at the University of Lyon. His research interests have been focused on spectrochemistry of plasmas and lasers from fundamental, analytical and instrumental aspects. He has published more than 200 papers, reviews and book chapters.

Matthias Otto is Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg in Germany. He was born in Dresden (Germany) and did all his studies at the University of Leipzig. In 1984 he moved to Freiberg (Germany) as a reader and was appointed full Professor there in 1987. Since that time he has taught almost all aspects of Analytical Chemistry mainly within the curricula of chemistry, applied sciences and geoecology and organizes courses in basic and advanced chemometrics.

Miguel Valcárcel is Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Córdoba (Spain) since 1976, member of the Spanish Royal Academy of Sciences and currently chairman of the Analytical Division of the Federation of European Chemical Societies (DAC-FECS). He is author or co-author of 630 research papers and six monographs in the frame of automation, simplification and quality of (bio)chemical measurement processes.

The new "Kellner" is a thoroughly updated and improved edition of an internationally successful textbook. Almost half of the contents have been rewritten, while all chapters carried over from the first edition have been updated to reflect important technological advances of the past 5 years.
The parts on general considerations and quality management, chemical equilibria, automation and miniaturization have been completely rewritten. Additional chapters on multi-dimensional chromatography, sensors and screening system now expand the content to include also the most modern methods encountered in an analytical chemistry laboratory.
As the subtitle indicates, the content structure has been altered to reflect modern concept-oriented teaching methods. The foundations of Analytical Chemistry, including quality assurance, data statistics and chemometrics, are now treated in depth in the introductory chapters -- a feature that is not found in any other textbook currently available.
Finally, a face-lift of the layout and chapter organization leads to improved user-friendliness. All chapters feature a short summary, recommended reading, and study questions with answers.

"This second edition covers analytical chemistry from general principles to state-of-the-art techniques and instrumentation."
Analytical Chemistry

"Well-thought out and impeccably detailed...an easy-to-follow text that will lend itself well to classroom instruction."
Electric Review

"Viewed as a whole, this textbook is a detailed compendium of modern analytical chemistry, which offers a mainly excellent survey of the field."
Angewandte Chemie I.E.

"The text covers both general analytical chemistry and instrumental analysis and may be used for most analytical chemistry courses offered today. ...the book gives a comprehensive overview about the technologies available for the analytical chemist today.
Metall

"If one has only one analytical chemistry book, this would be an excellent choice."
CHOICE

"...I strongly recommend this book to all laboratories which have to be kept well informed about the vast variety of analytical possibilities. I also recommend it to PhD students, whose topic is related to the analytical sciences."
Archiv der Pharmazie

"... a useful tool for teachers and students at all university levels, and for everyone working with analytical methods in industry... This is one of the few large introductions available on analytical chemistry, and it can be recommended as text book or quick reference for everyone, who starts to get involved into this discipline."
ChemPhysChem

"With its broad scope, the text doubles as a reliable reference for virtually all analytical problems encountered during the course of study and beyond."
Metrohm Information

"... a must-have volume for students as well as those experienced practitioners in analytical chemistry."
American Journal of Therapeutics

"... is one of the broadest and most up-to-date text books in the field and can be recommended for students and lecturers. All chapters are clearly written and allow a self-evaluation by answering the questions at the end of the chapters. Owing to the multi-authored approach, it suffers from some overlaps that, on the whole, do not significantly reduce the value of this book."
