Media reviews
...this is a very useful book which gives an excellent position statement on the application of the techniques and of their limitations in environmental forensics. A required purchase, I am sure, for all institutional libraries where these sorts of activities take place. -- Chemistry World, Future Issue, Paul Kneller Chemistry World
