Dr Vogel's classic introduction to analytical methods has provided generations of chemists worldwide with a basis for teaching, learning and applying analytical chemistry. This 60th anniversary edition - the first for a decade - reflects major changes in the subject.Analysts need to understand the concepts behind methods and Vogel's Quantitative Chemical Analysis provides clear introductions to all the key analytical methods including those involving advanced computerised equipment available in many analytical laboratories. The editors have built further on the work of Dr Vogel, modernising the approach while retaining the analytical concepts and ideas which were built into the original work.This new edition has been extensively revised to take into account developments in instrumental procedures and coupled techniques whilst maintaining the book's focus on quantitative chemical and problem-specific analyses. With excellent cross-referencing this book provides a wealth of examples and tables of data.*Comprehensive coverage of methods with detailed easy-to-follow practical experiments.*Basic analytical theory which is essential for understanding the subject.*
Greatly expanded sections on instrumental analysis including aspects of miniaturisation.*Increased emphasis on minor/trace component analysis and revised statistical handling of data.*New chapters on sampling, mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance.
