Overview

A thorough revision of a highly successful volume which considers the principles of inductively coupled plasmas, the instrumentation, the methodology and the applications within the three main areas of environmental analysis, earth science, food science and clinical medicine. Full account is taken of recent developments, such as high resolution instruments, novel detection systems and electrospray techniques. No prior knowledge is assumed. To assist the "hands-on" user, details of the advantages and disadvantages of the various approaches are included.

To assist the "hands-on" user, details of the advantages and disadvantages of the various approaches are included. The first edition of Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrometry and its Applications was written as a handbook for users who wanted a better understanding of the theory augmented by a practical insight of how best to approach a range of applications, and to provide a useful starting point for users trying an approach or technique new to them. These objectives have been retained in the second edition but a slight shift in emphasis gives the volume an overall perspective that is more forward looking. Structured into 11 chapters, the current edition is a thorough revision of the original, covering the principles of inductively coupled plasmas, instrumentation, methodology and applications within environmental analysis, earth science, food science and clinical medicine. Each chapter, written by internationally recognised leaders in their specifi
