This book covers one of the most neglected areas in environmental trace analysis, namely that of sample preparation. The text discusses all of the necessary steps for analysing a sample for both trace metals and organics, from the initial sampling protocols, through the range of possible sample preparation methods, and leading finally to the analysis and recording of data. Detailed information is provided on the specific methods to follow for preparing a sample for metal and organic analyses.

The topics covered include the following:

∗ Basic laboratory skills

∗ Investigative approaches for sample preparation

∗ Sampling

∗ Storage of samples

∗ Sample preparation for inorganic analysis – solids and liquids

∗ Sample preparation for organic analysis – solids, liquids and volatile compounds

∗ Pre–concentration approaches

∗ Instrumental techniques for trace analysis

Key features include:

∗ Up–to–date information on the latest developments in sample preparation for metals and organics.

∗ Written in an open learning/distance learning style, it is ideal for use as a self–study guide or as the basis of a taught course.

∗ The provision of a comprehensive bibliography to guide the reader to more specialized texts and sources.

Methods for Environmental Trace Analysis will be invaluable to students pursuing BSc, MChem, MSc and MRes courses in analytical chemistry, as well as subsidiary courses in life, environmental and food sciences.
