For undergraduate level courses in Instrumental Analysis.
This text provides a rigorous, yet readable, introduction to instrumental methods of chemical analysis-providing a greater emphasis on principles and a balance of topics closer to contemporary analytical practice than other texts. It features a large number of examples of real-world applications from current journals-showing how the principles and practices of analytical chemistry are used to produce answers to questions in all areas of scientific study and practice.
The text also features a strong emphasis on teaching students analytical chemistry problem-solving skills. *Includes a unique, highly-praised chapter on Fourier transforms. *Covers issues involved in sampling and sample preparation. *Includes the most up-to-date coverage of techniques used in industry today. *Separates discussions of data analysis and reliability from those of instrument design. *Illustrates real contemporary problems and shows the factors that must be taken into consideration in order to approach them effectively. *Features applications boxes - Analytical Chemistry in Action - and exercises. *Offers optional sections labeled A Deeper Look which
