Methods of trace environmental quantitative analysis (TEQA) are attaining increased levels of sensitivity at an impressive rate. This second edition takes readers from the very basic principles to state-of-the-art methods of TEQA currently used in leading laboratories. Among the more than two-dozen new topics are the underlying principles of GC-MS, GC-MS-MS, LC-MS, and ICP-MS, column chromatographic cleanup, gel permeation chromatography, and matrix solid-phase dispersion. The author expanded the sample preparation chapter to include even more alternatives to liquid-liquid extraction and extended the section on SPME to reflect its recent prolific growth. This book is a highly readable introduction to the principles and practice of TEQA.
