About this book

All the essentials needed for successful ICP OES analyses. Using a clear and comprehensive style, the author introduces practitioners to ICP emission spectrometry, covering the basics as well as information on the instrumentation, instructions on how to develop methods and numerous concrete examples. The layout is extremely reader-friendly and well structured, with the author highlighting typical questions and problems, while also providing checklists and detailed instructions for implementation. Thus, this book is not intended merely for the readers' own training and further education, but its sections on maintenance and troubleshooting also make it a reliable source for lab chemists. Throughout, the author draws on his knowledge and experience gained over the last 20 years in developing spectrometers for a leading manufacturer and in training and advising users as a freelance consultant. Knowledge now available to all users of ICP OES.
