Handbook of Derivatives for Chromatography, 2nd Edition

Karl Blau (Editor), John M. Halket (Editor)

ISBN: 978-0-471-92699-3 June 1993 392 Pages


A practical handbook of derivatives and an invaluable reference source for chemists using chromatography for derivatization. Since publication of the first edition in 1977, there have been many developments in chemical derivatization which have gone hand-in-hand with advances in chromatography. This handbook will be of use not only in core chemistry but also in food analysis, clinical and biochemical analysis, toxicological, environmental and forensic testing and refining.
