Overview

Most chemists, whether they are biochemists, organic, analytical, pharmaceutical or clinical chemists and many pharmacists and biologists need to perform chemical analysis. Consequently, they are not only confronted with carrying out the actual analysis, but also with problems such as method selection, experimental design, optimization, calibration, data acquisition and handling, and statistics in order to obtain maximum relevant chemical information. In other words: they are confronted with chemometrics. This book on chemometrics, written by some of the leaders in the field, aims to provide a thorough, up-to-date introduction to this subject. The reader is given the opportunity to acquaint himself with the tools used in this discipline and the way in which they are applied. Some practical examples are given and the reader is shown how to select the appropriate tools in a given situation.

As such the book provides the means to approach and solve analytical problems strategically and systematically, without the need for the reader to become a fully-fledged chemometrician. The authors' aim was to write a tutorial book which would be useful to readers at every level in this field.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The many examples, the eye-pleasing presentation and the references to other texts and articles make the book useful as a teaching tool. ... it is apparent that the book is the most comprehensive available on chemometrics. Beginners and those more familiar with the field will find the book a great benefit because of that breadth, and especially because of the clarity and relative uniformity of presentation. Like its predecessor, this book will be the standard text on the subject for some time.
Journal of Chemometrics
The authors are to congratulated on providing a unique introduction to the topic and a gateway to the deeper understanding of specific aspects. It will be the standard text for chemometrics lecturers and analytical chemists for many years.
European Chromatography News
This book should be in the libraries of all analytical laboratories and on the personal bookshelves of analytical laboratory managers.
The Analysts
...is highly recommended for the wider chemical public, and not just for analytical chemists.
