About this Book

This international collection of chapters comprehensively covers different aspects of procedures for speciation analysis at all levels starting from sample collection and storage, through sample preparation approaches to render the species chromatographable, principles of separation techniques used in speciation analysis, to the element specific detection.

  • International renowned editors and contributors
  • Includes coverage of electrochemical methods, biosensors for metal ions, radioisotope techniques and direct solid speciation techniques
  • Provides information on quality assurance and risk assessment, and speciation-relevant legislation

Each chapter is a stand-alone reference covering a given facet of elemental speciation analysis written by an expert in a given field with the volume as a whole providing an excellent introductory text and reference handbook.
