Encyclopedia of Analytical Science, Third Edition examines the techniques that yield information on chemical systems and the instruments and methods used to separate, identify and quantify matter. Meticulously organized, clearly written and fully interdisciplinary, this updated edition cover three broad areas: analytical techniques (e.g., mass spectrometry, liquid chromatography, atomic spectrometry); areas of application (e.g., forensic, environmental and clinical); and analytes (e.g., arsenic, nucleic acids and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons), providing a one-stop resource for all analytical science queries. Key new topics covered include genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, increasingly complex hyphenated techniques, and more.
While each section is intended to be self-contained, extensive cross-references are included to enable further information on particular topics found elsewhere in the encyclopedia. Navigation is also facilitated by a comprehensive list of keywords and a cross referencing index.
- Offers readers a one-stop resource with access to information across the entire scope of modern analytical science
- Presents articles split into three classes, creating an ideal resource for students, researchers and professionals
- Provides concise and accessible information that is ideal for non-specialists and readers from undergraduate levels and higher

Dr. Manuel Miró received his M.Sc. (1998) and Ph.D. (2002) in Chemistry at the University of the Balearic Islands, Spain. He has conducted post-doctoral research in several universities including the Technical University of Berlin, Technical University of Denmark and University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences in Austria. He is currently Full Professor in Analytical Chemistry (from September 2017) at the University of the Balearic Islands; Visiting Professor at Charles University (Czech Republic); and member of the IUPAC Chemistry and Environment Division (Subcommittee on Chemical and Biophysical Processes in the Environment).
He is the Reviews Editor of the journal Analytica Chimica Acta (Elsevier, IF:4.950, second highest IF across general journals in Analytical Chemistry) and Associate Editor of the Enclyclopedia of Analytical Science, 3rd Edition, Elsevier, since 2007 and 2016, respectively. His publication record shows over 170 refereed articles including 11 book chapters, with an h-index of 35 and over 3500 citations. He has published 19 articles in Analytical Chemistry from ACS and is corresponding author of over 90 articles.He has delivered over 55 oral presentations (43 as Keynote or invited lecturer) in international conferences on analytical chemistry, sample preparation, nanotechnology, environmental chemistry, and automation based on flow methodology. He has presented over 130 poster communications in international conferences and symposiums. He has supervised 7 PhD students in national and international universities (Technical University of Denmark, Mahidol University in Thailand, University of the Balearic Islands and Universidade Federal de Bahia in Brasil). He has been actively engaged in 27 national and international research projects (e.g., University of Melbourne and Charles University in Czech Republic) 15 of which as the Principal Investigator. His research interests are focused on the development of on-line sample processing strategies for isolation and/or preconcentration of trace levels of environmental pollutants exploiting the various generations of flow analysis, including Lab-on-a-Valve platforms and 3-D printed fluidic structures, in hyphenation with modern analytical instrumentation.
