Chemistry - Analytical Chemistry
Surpassing its bestselling predecessors, this thoroughly updated third edition, along with its unique ancillaries, is designed to be a powerful training tool for entry-level chemistry technicians. Now even more than ever, Analytical Chemistry for Technicians explains analytical chemistry and instrumental analysis principles and how to apply them in the real world. A unique feature of this edition is that it brings the workplace of the chemical technician into the classroom. With over 50 workplace scene side boxes, it offers stories and photographs of technicians and chemists working with the equipment or performing the techniques discussed in the text. Also, an innovative web site enhances training activities that use the text, and a working LIMS system can be used in training programs for chemical technicians. The author also incorporates knowledge gained from a number of American Chemical Society and PITTCON short courses and from personal visits to several laboratories at major chemical plants, where he determined firsthand what is important in the modern analytical laboratory. Most importantly, the author uses the recently published Voluntary Industry Standards for chemical process industry technicians.
