Practical Three-Way Calibration is an introductory-level guide to the complex field of analytical calibration with three-way instrumental data. With minimal use of mathematical/statistical expressions, it walks the reader through the analytical methodologies with helpful images and step-by-step explanations. Unlike other books on the subject, there is no need for prior programming experience and no need to learn programming languages. Easy-to-use graphical interfaces and intuitive descriptions of mathematical and statistical concepts make three-way calibration methodologies accessible to analytical chemists and scientists in a wide range of disciplines in industry and academia.
- Numerous detailed examples of slowly increasing complexity
- Exposure to several different data sets and techniques through figures and diagrams
- Computer program screenshots for easy learning without prior knowledge of programming languages
- Minimal use of mathematical/statistical expressions

Escandar, Graciela M.
Graciela Escandar was born in Rosario, Argentina. She obtained her B.Sc. in Biochemistry in 1983 and her Ph.D. in 1992, both from the Faculty of Biochemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Rosario, where she is now Associate Pofessor in the Department of Analytical Chemistry, and fellow of the National Research Council of Argentina (CONICET). She has published about 100 scientific papers in international journals and book chapters and supervised six Ph.D. Theses. Her research focuses on the development of new luminescent methodologies coupled to multi-way calibration of analytes of environmental and pharmaceutical interest.
