“Handbook of Sample Preparation"" is a valuable book dealing with a wide range of state-of-the-art extraction techniques that have been used in many laboratories. Not only a good text book on a variety of extraction techniques, it also enables systematic understanding of the modern sample-preparation methods necessary for workers dealing with the analysis of various complex mixtures.” (Anal Bioanal Chem, 2011)
