Adding 13 examples to this new, third edition, Veronika Meyer now offers solutions for nearly 100 problems. All the examples are accompanied by a concise, instructive text and an informative figure, including essential fundamentals as well as such helpful strategies as equipment tests or quality assurance strategies. A practice-oriented aid to obtaining correct and reliable analytical results.
From the reviews of a previous edition:
'This is a giant of a little book on HPLC.'
Following an apprenticeship as laboratory assistant, Veronika R. Meyer studied chemistry at the university of applied sciences in Burgdorf (Switzerland). From 1976 to 1998 she worked with HPLC at Berne University, where she also completed her PhD thesis in Chemistry. Afterwards she spent her post-doc time at the Weizmann-Institute in Rehovot (Israel) and at the University of Delaware, Newark, DE. Since 1998 she is working for EMPA (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research) in St. Gallen. The fist German edition of her textbook "Practical High-Performance Liquid Chromatography" was published in 1979. Veronika R. Meyer is author of numerous papers in international journals and teaches at Berne University.
