Handbook of Elemental Speciation II: Species in the Environment, Food, Medicine and Occupational Health



Handbook of Elemental Speciation II: Species in the Environment, Food, Medicine and Occupational Health


Written by an internationally recognized group of editors and contributors, Handbook of Elemental Speciation, Volume 2 provides a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary presentation of the analytical techniques involved in speciation.
  • Comprehensive coverage of key elements and compounds in situ
  • Addresses the analysis and impact of these elements and compounds, e.g. arsenic, lead, copper, iron, halogens, etc.,  in food, the environment, clinical and occupational health
  • Detailed methodology and data are reported, as well as regulatory limits
  • Includes general introduction on the impact in these key areas
