The study of the environment requires the reliable and accurate measurement of extremely small quantities of chemicals and the ability to determine if they are pollutants or naturally occurring species. Historically, a "dilute and disperse" method of waste disposal has been accepted; yet as we learn the long-term consequences of such an approach, it is clear that more rigorous waste management techniques are necessary to understand the sources and fates of contaminants and to regulate their discharge. This volume presents the details of the basic analytical science involved in making these measurements. It concentrates on the basic principles of sampling and sample preparation, followed by the chemical principles of the major instrumental methods used in chemical analysis, and detailed discussions of the major environmental matrices. This book also provides coverage of topics usually only partially discussed in textbooks, such as quality assurance plans and statistical data handling. Students majoring in environmental sciences need a foundation in measurement techniques used in the field. Environmental Chemical Analysis gives students a thorough grounding in this field and enough information to judge the quality and interpret the information produced in the analytical laboratory.

"The book contains twenty three chapters written by experts on the subject is structured in two parts: the first one describes the role of the latest developments in analytical and bioanalytical techniques, and the second one deals with the most innovative applications and issues in food analysis. The two first introductory chapters about sampling technique, from basic one to the most recent advances, which is still a food challenge because is responsible of the quality and assurance of the analysis, andon data analysis and chemometrics are followed by a review of the most recently applied techniques in process (on-line) control and in laboratories for the analysis of major or minor compounds of food. These techniques ranged from the non-invasive and non-destructive ones, such as infrared spectroscopy, magnetic resonance and ultrasounds, to emerging areas as nanotechnology, biosensors and electronic noses and tongues, including those already well-established in food analysis, such as chromatographic andelectrophoretic techniques. These chapters also include two important tools for solving problems in chemical and biological analysis such as mass spectrometry and molecular-based techniques"--

Written by an international team of contributors, each experts in their particular fields, this book familiarizes analytical chemists with the range of elemental analysis techniques, to enable them to specify the most appropriate test for any given sample. In addition, it contains important chapters on sample preparation and quality control, essential elements in obtaining accurate and reliable analytical results. As such, this book will be essential reading for all analytical chemists. The techniques of elemental analysis are important in many other disciplines, so the book will be of particular interest to those commissioning a wide range of analytical measurements, such as chemists, geologists, environmental scientists and biologists. The breadth and depth of coverage will also make the book very useful for advanced students.

Physical Methods in Chemical Analysis, Volume III focuses on the application of physical methods in chemical analysis, including chromatography, spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance, and photometry. The selection first offers information on gas chromatography, electrochromatography, and electroanalytical methods in trace analysis. Discussions focus on analytical applications, apparatus and techniques, titration methods, anodic stripping of deposited metals, and polarography. The book then examines the high-frequency method of chemical analysis, field emission microscopy, and theory and principles of sampling for chemical analysis. The publication takes a look at flame photometry and microwave spectroscopy. Topics include sample treatment required for flame photometric determinations; factors affecting precision and accuracy in flame photometry; theoretical background of microwave spectroscopy, and problems connected with quantitative analysis. The manuscript then elaborates on analytical applications of nuclear magnetic resonance; fluorescent x-ray spectrometric analysis; and neutron spectroscopy and neutron interactions in chemical analysis. The selection is a dependable reference for readers interested in the application of physical methods in chemical analysis.
