Modern Instrumental Analysis covers the fundamentals of instrumentation and provides a thorough review of the applications of this technique in the laboratory. It will serve as an educational tool as well as a first reference book for the practicing instrumental analyst. The text covers five major sections:
1. Overview, Sampling, Evaluation of Physical Properties, and Thermal Analysis
2. Spectroscopic Methods
3. Chromatographic Methods
4. Electrophoretic and Electrochemical Methods
5. Combination Methods, Unique Detectors, and Problem Solving
Each section has a group of chapters covering important aspects of the titled subject, and each chapter includes applications that illustrate the use of the methods. The chapters also include an appropriate set of review questions.
Covers the fundamentals of instrumentation as well as key applications
Each chapter includes review questions that reinforce concepts
Serves as a quick reference and comprehensive guidebook for practitioners and students alike
