Instrumental Analysis provides a rigorous, modern, and engaging coverage of chemical instrumentation, written with the undergraduate student in mind. At its core, Instrumental Analysis includes the underlying theory, instrumental design, applications and operation of spectroscopic,electroanalytical, chromatographic, and mass spectral instrumentation. Also included is a discussion of surface imaging, thermal analysis, modern statistical tools, and signal processing. In order to give the student the requisite skill in identifying the comparative advantages and disadvantages in choosing one analytical technique over another, this textbook includes direct comparisons between the differing analytical techniques with a discussion of how these choices affect theinterpretation of the data in its final form. Additionally, today's analyst must understand the trade-offs resulting from the advancements in the miniaturization of electronics. Many manufacturers of chemical instrumentation now provide "labs-in-a-box", field kits, and hand-held sensors whosepredecessors would have filled entire laboratories in the past. These portable instruments provide fast, on-site analysis, often with minimal sample preparation and waste, however, in some cases at the expense of data quality. When appropriate, we make side-by-side comparisons between the bench-topand portable version of modern analytical instrumentation.

"I like this book's simplicity and the way it addresses its audience of predominantly undergraduate students. The approach is simple, with a depth of coverage that is appropriate for undergraduates. Instructors should have no need for supplementary materials, and the key concepts werepresented seamlessly with related topics for a typical one-semester undergraduate instrumental analysis course. The chapters provide concise and relevant introductions to key topics." --Dan Sykes, Pennsylvania State University
