Description

This completely revised and updated fourth edition of the best-selling classic is a thorough treatment of the subject while remaining concise and readable. New additions include capillary electrophoresis, monolithic columns, zwitterion colums, DNA/RNA analysis, fundamentals of the science of IC, and micro methods. The whole is rounded off by handy tables with details on detection or elution conditions, among others.

"Overall, this is a good book for those interested in the separation of small inorganic and organic ions. It takes the reader from beginner to intermediate level in terms of the understanding and practice of ion chromatography. It is an easy to read book and for those wishing to build up their knowledge of the topic quickly, it is strongly recommended." (Chromatographia, August 2010)

"This new edition is a substantial expansion and update of the previous edition, and is strongly recommended for scientists seeking a broad overview of IC. I am sure that this fourth edition will continue the success of its predecessors."  (Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry,  Jan - June 2010)
