Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark A. Jandreski, PhD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This book is a summary of the proceedings of the Chromatographic Society International Symposium on sample preparation for biomedical and environmental analysis held in July 1991 at the University of Surrey in the U.K.
Purpose: The preface offers little purpose other than to present the data from the symposium. The book offers some information on the preparation of biomedical and environmental samples for chromatographic analysis. The subjects for each chapter are discrete and specific, but contain a minimal amount of detailed information.
Audience: Although the authors do not specify a particular audience, I believe that this book is narrowly focused on a number of different chromatography techniques and could only be used by someone who routinely performs chromatographic assays.
Features: The references are not current. Even though the symposium took place in 1991, some references are marked as "(1992). In press." Because this book was published with a 1994 copyright, it would seem that the authors could have updated the references for articles that were published probably at least two years ago. The book contains a number of good illustrations, mostly chromatograms. The table of contents and index are laid out very well. The overall appearance of the book is appealing, and perhaps offers to provide the reader with more information than it really does.
Assessment: The chapters are short and do not offer as much information to the reader as the title of the book implies. Some of the benefits this book offers to readers are probably diminished as a result of the time lag between the symposium and the publication of this summary. Only those who are routinely involved with medical or environmental chromatography will benefit from this book. University and major medical center libraries may wish to carry this book.

The proceedings of a July 1991 international symposium in Surrey, England, focusing on preparing samples for chromatographic analysis. Among the 24 topics are on-line sample treatment for column liquid chromatography, the effect of cartridge conditioning in the reversed-phase extraction of basic drugs, and the determination of organochlorine pesticides in water.
