View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Written for a course that deals with the principles and applications of modern analytical instruments, this edition reflects updated techniques and a more applied approach with the addition of case studies. Emphasis is placed upon the theoretical basis of each type of instrument, its optimal area of application, its sensitivity, its precision, and its limitations. The text also introduces students to elementary integrated circuitry, microprocessors and computers, and treatment of analytical data. A text-specific CD-ROM accompanies all new copies of the text, providing students with excel files of data analysis and simulations of analytical techniques to help them visualize important concepts in this course.
