There has been significant expansion in the application of atomic spectrographic techniques in recent years, which has brought with it the need to provide more flexible methods to a wider range of samples, particularly non-aqueous samples. This book compares the traditional and improved methods in the analysis of non-aqueous samples for elemental analyses by atomic emission spectroscopic methods whilst describing procedures that will attempt to improve sample preparation methods.
Dr Martin Brennan is an analytical scientist of 30 years standing with considerable experience in atomic spectroscopy. He has a M.Sc. in analytical science from Queens University, Belfast and a Ph.D in atomic spectroscopy and electroanalytical techniques from University College Cork, Ireland. He has considerable experience in the analysis of a wide range of samples particularly organic type samples and is currently employed with Henkel Ireland Ltd., manufacturers of adhesives and other organic compounds. He holds the position of Hon. Sec. of the Republic of Ireland sub-region Analytical Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
