The 10th edition of Quantitative Chemical Analysis continues to set the standard for learning analytical chemistry with distinguished writing, the most up-to-date content, and now the acclaimed Achieve program, supporting exceptional problem-solving practice. New author Charles Lucy joins Dan Harris, infusing additional subject expertise and classroom experience into the 10th edition.
Quantitative Chemical Analysis is also now supported by Achieve, Macmillan's new online learning platform. Achieve is the culmination of years of development work put toward creating the most powerful online learning tool for chemistry students. Achieve includes an interactive e-Book as well as our renowned assessments. Students will be able to focus their study with adaptive quizzing and gain a better understanding of what is happening at the atomic or molecular level through instrumentation technique videos.
New to this edition:
- Quantitative Chemical Analysis 10e is now supported in Achieve.
- Revised chromatography and electrophoresis chapters written by new co-author Charles Lucy.
- Up-to-date foundational SI units included.
- Updates to Spectrometry chapters with particular attention paid to including state- of -the- art methods and techniques critical to this field.
- New methods of biochemical analysis showcased as applications to biology and medicine continue to be a highlight of the text.
- New problems to reinforce graphing skills and the inspection of data.

Dan Harris was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1948. He earned degrees in Chemistry from MIT in 1968 and Caltech 1973 and was a postdoc at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. After teaching at the University of California at Davis from 1975-1980 and at Franklin and Marshall College from 1980-1983, he moved to the Naval Air Systems Command at China Lake, California, where he is now a Senior Scientist and Esteemed Fellow. While teaching analytical chemistry at Davis, he wrote his lectures in bound form for his students. This volume caught the attention of publishers' representatives wandering through the college bookstore. The first edition of Quantitative Chemical Analysis was published in 1982. The first edition of Exploring Chemical Analysis came out in 1996. Both have undergone regular revision. Dan is also co-author of Symmetry and Spectroscopy published in 1978 by Oxford University Press and now available from Dover Press. His book Materials for Infrared Windows and Domes was published by SPIE press in 1999. Dan and his wife Sally were married in 1970. They have two children and four grandchildren. Sally's work on every edition of the books is essential to their quality and accuracy.
Chuck Lucy is a Professor Emeritus and 3M National Teaching Fellow at the University of Alberta. He has published over 160 papers (26 with undergraduate researchers) and been on the editorial advisory boards of seven analytical journals, including Analytical Chemistry and Analyst. He is a passionate teacher who has taught classes ranging from large first-year courses to discovery-based graduate lectures. Chuck has organized teaching workshops and chemistry education symposia across North America and has received numerous awards, including the Chemical Institute of Canada Award for Chemistry Education and the American Chemical Society Division of Analytical Chemistry’s J. Calvin Giddings Award for Excellence in Education. After contributing content to several chapters in the ninth edition of Quantitative Chemical Analysis, Chuck has broad responsibilities as a co-author of this tenth edition. The statistics, spectrophotometry, and chromatography chapters have benefited most from Chuck’s authorship. He highlights the contributions of undergraduate student researchers and his new end-of-chapter problems emphasize graphical examination of data. Many of his problems incorporate primary sources and research publications or make use of online tools such as a chromatography simulator with which you can observe the effects of varying experimental conditions.
