About this book

The first edition of Chromatography: Concepts and Contrasts, published in 1988, was one of the first books to discuss all the different types of chromatography under one cover. The second edition continues with these principles but has been updated to include new chapters on sampling and sample preparation, capillary electrophoresis and capillary electrochromatography (CEC), chromatography with mass spec detection, and industrial and governmental practices in regulated industries.

...a practical, hands-on approach... (CHOICE, July 2005) " excellent introduction to all the chromatographic techniques for both the industrial practitioner and the...student because of its unified treatment, its modern approach, and up-to-date references." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, June 29, 2005) "Professor Miller should be congratulated for the book...should be on the shelf of every practicing chromatographer...students taking separations science courses could also use it as their standard textbook." (Chromatographia, February 2005)
