About this book

Determining the composition and properties of complex hydrocarbon mixtures in petroleum, synthetic fuels, and petrochemical products usually requires a battery of analytical techniques that detect and measure specific features of the molecules, such as boiling point, mass, nuclear magnetic resonance frequencies, etc. There have always been a need for new and improved analytical technology to better understand hydrocarbon chemistry and processes. This book provides an overview of recent advances and future challenges in modern analytical techniques that are commonly used in hydrocarbon applications. Experts in each of the areas covered have reviewed the state of the art, thus creating a book that will be useful to readers at all levels in academic, industry, and research institutions.

Media reviews

From the reviews: 'This book, in my opinion, is very timely since it provides a compilation of 18 chapters dedicated to many of the latest developments in analytical techniques widely used in areas of the petroleum industry concerned with exploration, production, refining, and, more recently, environmental concerns. The chapters in the book cover virtually all of the techniques being used today in these areas. [...] One of the appealing aspects of this volume is that it covers such a wide range of techniques, many of which are often not described in detail in the mainstream literature. ...here they are all together in one readily accessible reference volume. ...the arrival of a book like "Analytical Advances for Hydrocarbon Research" is timely and will serve as a useful guide for many years to come.' R. Paul Philp, University of Oklahoma in Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry, 14 (2003) "The book provides a comprehensive compilation of the latest developments in analytical techniques for the characterization of petroleum hydrocarbons. ! The book is easy to read, with high-quality illustrations and good literature coverage. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to people working in the analytical characterization of hydrocarbons, in the area of petroleum industry and research concerned with exploration, production and refining, as well as with environmental related issues." (International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Issue 84, 2004)
