Flame Spectrometry in Environmental Chemical Analysis A Practical Guide


Flame Spectrometry in Environmental Chemical Analysis A Practical Guide by Malcolm S. Cresser

Flame Spectrometry in Environmental Chemical Analysis is a simple, user-friendly guide to safe flame spectrometric methods for environmental samples. It explains key processes involved in achieving accurate and reliable results in atomic absorption spectrometry, atomic fluorescence spectrometry and flame emission spectrometry, showing the inter-relationship of the three techniques, and their relative importance. Flame Spectrometry in Environmental Chemical Analysis presents the important information with thoroughness and clarity, and in a style that makes it valuable to students and researchers using these techniques. It also offers straightforward reading for environmentalists with interests in such areas as pollution research, agriculture, ecology, soil science, geology and forestry; informing researchers of exactly what they can expect to be able to determine by flame spectrometric methods. Newcomers to flame spectrometry will gain increased confidence, job skills and many handy tips and ideas from this book. It will impart a strong working knowledge that can be translated into sound data in the laboratory.


...he (the author) has provided a simple practical guide for environmental scientists who want accurate analytical results. Theory has been kept to a necessary minimum in this concise and clearly written monograph. * Laboratory Equipment Digest, January 1995 * ...this book is a must for all users of flame spectrometry but will be particularly useful for newcomers to this field. * Analytical Chimica Acta 316 (1995) 411-417 *
