Analytical Chemistry provides a clear and thorough introduction to the principles and practices underpinning modern analytical chemistry.Providing a complete course from basic first principles to in-depth coverage of the latest emerging techniques, this is an essential text for readers from all disciplines where a familiarity with analytical techniques is required.The book is arranged in three sections allowing readers from all levels to access the text as appropriate. The opening section covers fundamental or introductory material. Here little background knowledge is assumed in order to make the text suitable for students from a wide range of disciplines.This is followed by an in-depth account of the most commonly encountered instrumental techniques. The final section of the book provides more advanced coverage of significant emerging techniques in the field.Numerous diagrams, worked examples and self-assessment questions throughout the text help students to learn and test their understanding. Boxed sections allow the treatment of key topics in greater depth.Online Resource CentreAll the figures from the book will be available to download free from the companion web site at

Editorial Reviews

`There is a simple design with well laid out text and uncomplicated diagrams. I particularly like the diagrams as they are very clear and would be easy for students to reproduce. The author has eradicated mathematics wherever possible, which will be popular with undergraduates.' Chemistry World
