Editorial Reviews

"The Editor, Professor Steve Hill, states in the preface that the purpose was to produce a book that covers both theory and applications in a concise, informative and readable form. This has certainly been achieved and the book is a very welcome addition to the literature.""...The content is excellent. I am very pleased to have a copy of this book for my own use and it would be amongst my first-choice texts to recommend to students or those who have little or no previous experience of plasma source spectrometry."--B. L. Sharp, Department of Chemistry, Loughborough University, TRENDS IN ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY,Vol.19, No.8, August 2000"...well-written and easy to read...a good introduction to ICP-MS."--John W. Olesik, Ohio State Univ., Journal of American Society of Mass Spectrometry
