Description

The second edition of ""Analytical Methods in Supramolecular Chemistry"" comes in two volumes and covers a broad range of modern methods and techniques now used for investigating supramolecular systems, e. g. NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, extraction methods, crystallography, single molecule spectroscopy, electrochemisty, and many more. In this second edition, tutorial inserts have been introduced, making the book also suitable as supplementary reading for courses on supramolecular chemistry. All chapters have been revised and updated and four new chapters have been added.

A must-have handbook for Organic and Analytical Chemists, Spectroscopists, Materials Scientists, and Ph.D. Students in Chemistry.

From reviews of the first edition:

""This timely book should have its place in laboratories dealing with supramolecular objects. It will be a source of reference for graduate
students and more experienced researchers and could induce new ideas on the use of techniques other than those usually used in the laboratory.""
Journal of the American Chemical Society (2008) VOL. 130, NO. 1 doi: 10.1021/ja0769649

""The book as a whole or single chapters will stimulate the reader to widen his horizon in chemistry and will help him to have new ideas in his research.""
Anal Bioanal Chem (2007) 389:2039-2040 DOI: 10.1007/s00216-007-1677-1
