Description

Analytical Chemistry: A Practical Approach is the only chemical analysis text with an emphasis on active learning, giving students step-by-step guidance on how the key principles of analytical science are applied in a range of practical, real-world contexts.

  • Adopts a practical approach to engage students with the subject in a fully hands-on manner.
  • Provides a clear framework through which students can develop their understanding of analytical chemistry.
  • Includes step-by-step exercises, complemented by extended problems to help students master their problem-solving skills.
  • Reflects the way in which Analytical Chemistry is used in real-world contexts, drawing on examples from environmental analysis, pharmaceutical analysis, biological analysis, and food analysis

Reviews

"Potential purchasers should not expect a normal textbook of analytical chemistry... this book gives information on a range of topics not readily available in standard works on analysis and is a must buy for all analytical chemists." - Edward R. Adlard, Chromatographia

"An excellent overview of the different techniques available and their applications." - Corey Evans, University of Leicester

"Well-placed and well-contextualised activities allow students to try to implement their reading." - Michael Coffey, Nottingham Trent University

"Clearly written with a great balance of theory and problems." - Panagiotis Manesiotis, Queen's University Belfast
