Editorial Reviews

A desk reference that describes all the main techniques for the quantitative determination of trace elements, including the advantages and disadvantages of each method, as written by specialists in each technique. The volume opens with four chapters that deal with general topics concerning all methods: systematic errors, quality control, sampling and preconcentration. The following seven chapters describe the main methods for trace element analysis. The last two chapters describe the application of the various methods in two areas, one dealing with speciation and the other with biological samples. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
