About this book

This manual is intended to provide chemists and anlysts in the field of veterinary toxicology, agriculture, and environmental chemical analysis with a compilation of new, selected, and proven techniques with detailed insight and comprehensive step-by-step instructions. These techniques were chosen on the basis of recent technical and instrumental advancements for a particular inorganic analyte in the selected matrixes. Three introductory chapters contain useful, practical, and technical information which may be critical for both successful employment in an analytical profession and in the operation of an analytical laboratory.


Introduction (includes the following): Quality Assurance. Method Evaluation. Technique Development. Collection, Transportation, and Storage of Samples. General Laboratory Procedures. Safety.
Instrumentation (includes the following): Atomic Emission Spectrometry. Radio Frequency Generator, Optics, Detectors, and Computers. Atomic Absorption Spectrometry. Ion Chromatography. Separation Columns.
Techniques & Sample Preparation (includes the following): Microwave. Decomposition Techniques. Dry Ashing. Nitric Acid Digestions. Sulfuric Acid. Perchloric Acid. Hydrogen Peroxide. Acid Mixtures. Fusions.
