Description

Analytical Chemistry and Quantitative Analysis presents concepts and procedures in a manner that reflects the practice and applications of these methods in today’s analytical laboratories. These methods are illustrated by using current examples from fields that include forensics, environmental analysis, medicine, biotechnology, food science, pharmaceutical science, materials analysis, and basic research.  The fundamental principles of laboratory techniques for chemical analysis are introduced, along with issues to consider in the appropriate selection and use of these methods–including the proper use and maintenance of balances, laboratory glassware, and notebooks, as well as mathematical tools for the evaluation and comparison of experimental results. Basic topics in chemical equilibria are reviewed and used to help demonstrate the principles and proper use of classical methods of analysis like gravimetry and titrations.  Students are also introduced to common instrumental techniques, such as spectroscopy, chromatography and electrochemical methods.  Sideboxes allow for the discussion of other methods, including mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy, throughout the text.  CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
