Counter I. T. Platzner Atomic Energy Commission, Israel Including contributions from instrument manufacturers! Geological aging, chemical reaction mechanism studies, determination of atomic weights and investigation of metabolic pathways-these are all examples of the truly diverse nature of isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS). With applications in fields as far apart as analytical chemistry and astronomy, geochemistry and biomedical science, it is little wonder that this technique is becoming increasingly popular. In Modern Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry,the first comprehensive book written on the subject for twenty-five years, examples from all these areas, and many more,are given. All modern developments in this fascinating field are discussed with special attention paid to technical details and instrumentation. Features of the book include: * comprehensive element-by-element review including 94 elements * applications chapter which stresses multi-disciplinary nature of subject * instrumentation chapter with contributions from three leading industrialists on state-of-the-art instrumentation
