While even the best analytical techniques cannot rectify problems generated by sloppy sample preparation, this less "sexy" step between the point at which analytes are transferred from the sample matrix to a form suitable for analysis is often overlooked. With chapters ranging in content from the extraction of organic analytes from liquids and solids to post-extraction procedures and specific applications, Sample Preparation Techniques in Analytical Chemistry addresses all aspects of sample preparation and takes its place in scientific literature as the only text entirely devoted to teaching and reinforcing this crucial process._
Includes sample preconditioning methodology such as drying and homogenization.
Discusses new ideas such as on-line coupling of extraction methodology such as GC and HPLC.
Uses real-world examples in areas such as environmental and bio-analytical chemistry.
