Updated, revised, and expanded from the 1992 to incorporate the subsequent important impact on the technique of electrospray and atmospheric-pressure chemical ionization, which has widened applications to include the pharmaceutical industry and quantitative bioanalysis. Takes advantage of the slowing of innovation in interfaces and a narrowing to those two for most applications, but does include those interface approaches that are now rarely used in order to remain comprehensive. Focusing more on principles and strategies than on details of applications, offers newcomers to the technique an introduction and survey of all important aspects; and experienced users a reference, new perspectives, and perhaps a dose of inspiration. The CiP had cited the volume as 80 in the series. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
