About this Book

The most comprehensive one-stop reference for analytical chemistry

The highly-acclaimed Encyclopedia of Analytical Chemistry provides a much-needed professional level reference work for the 21st Century. Updating 4x per year, the Encyclopedia is the most comprehensive analytical chemistry reference available and covers all aspects from theory and instrumentation through to applications and techniques.

The Encyclopedia of Analytical Chemistry is the essential cross-disciplinary reference work for all analytical chemists in academia and industry. All fields of chemical research are covered: analytical, organic, physical, polymer, inorganic biomedical, environmental, pharmaceutical, industrial, petroleum, forensics, and food science.

  • All articles have been written by specialists in the field, and peer reviewed by experts, ensuring both accuracy and clarity. .
  • Over 6500 illustrations – many in colour
  • Extensive cross-referencing to facilitate navigation between articles
  • Every article features an extensive bibliography of relevant book and journal citations, providing references for further reading.

The chemistry and techniques are described as performed in the laboratory (environmental, clinical, QC, research, university), in the field, or by remote sensing. The level of detail is similar to that of a laboratory protocol and, together with the cited references, will support the analysis of complex inorganic, organic and biological structures by academic and industrial researchers. The Encyclopedia of Analytical Chemistry also facilitates preparation of procedures, protocols, and "cookbooks" by managers and staff of laboratories.

Editor Highlights (March 2016)

Robert A. Meyers, Editor in Chief of the Encyclopedia of Analytical Chemistry highlights the presentation and synthesis of the latest information on three widely used analytical techniques. These may not be the most alluring topics in scientific news, but they are classical, widely used methods which are also very important. These are Glow Discharge Optical Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry, Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry and Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy.
