This book presents an exhaustive overview of electrochemical sensors and biosensors for the analysis and monitoring of the most important analytes in the environmental field, in industry, in treatment plants and in environmental research. The chapters give the reader a comprehensive, state-of-the-art picture of the field of electrochemical sensors suitable to environmental analytes, from the theoretical principles of their design to their implementation, realization and application. The first three chapters discuss fundamentals, and the last three chapters cover the main groups of analytes of environmental interest.

This informative text introduces the techniques and areas of application of modern electroanalysis, which has a particularly important role with current environmental concerns, both in the laboratory and in the field. It is a unique self- contained text which starts by describing the basic principles of the necessary electrochemistry and then moves on to electrochemical sensors and their mode of functioning. Potentiometric sensors are described, including many types of selective electrode. Following this, amperometric and voltametric sensors are presented together with the various instrumentation and electrode modification strategies to enhance sensitivity and selectivity. A final chapter shows the range of applications of modern electroanalysis, with particular emphasis on trace species, and indicates future trends. Bibliography is provided to enable the reader to gain a further understanding of the topic through textbooks and specialist research journals. This clear and accessible text will be an invaluable study aid for advanced undergraduates and graduate students of chemistry, biochemistry, chemical technology, industrial chemistry and environmental science. Graduate chemists and biochemists in industry and in analytical laboratories, and students of engineering, pharmacology and related biomedical sciences will also find this book useful.

Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, andresearch into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible. The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analyticalapproaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science. A core text in the Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series, Biomedical Science Practice gives a comprehensive overview of the key laboratory techniques and professional skills that students need to master. The text is supported throughout with engaging clinical case studies, written to emphasizethe link between theory and practice, providing a strong foundation for beginning biomedical science students.

Excel is by far the most widely distributed data analysis software but few users are aware of its full powers. Advanced Excel For Scientific Data Analysis takes off from where most books dealing with scientific applications of Excel end. It focuses on three areas-least squares, Fourier transformation, and digital simulation-and illustrates these with extensive examples, often taken from the literature. It also includes and describes a number of sample macros and functions to facilitate common data analysis tasks. These macros and functions are provided in uncompiled, computer-readable, easily modifiable form; readers can therefore use them as starting points for making their own personalized data analysis tools. Detailed descriptions and sample applications of standard and specialized uses of least squares for fitting data to a variety of functions, including resolving multi-component spectra; standard processes such as calibration curves and extrapolation; custom macros for general "error" propagation, standard deviations of Solver results, weighted or equidistant least squares, Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization, Fourier transformation, convolution and deconvolution, time-frequency analysis, and data mapping. There are also worked examples showing how to use centering, the covariance matrix, imprecision contours, and Wiener filtering and custom functions for bisections, Lagrange interpolation, Euler and Runge-Kutta integration.

Zur Lösung analytischer Fragestellungen wird in der Biotechnologie, der Lebensmittel- und Umweltanalytik sowie der klinischen und pharmazeutischen Chemie neben der instrumentellen Analytik immer häufiger auf bioanalytische Methoden zurückgegriffen. Diese beruhen z. B. auf dem Einsatz von Enzymen, Nukleinsäuren oder Antikörpern. Dazu bietet das Buch eine praktische Einführung in die qualitative und quantitative Analytik mit biochemischen Reagenzien, die sowohl für das Studium wie für die Weiterbildung im Beruf geeignet ist. Die Autoren schlagen eine Brücke von den theoretischen Grundlagen hin zu den praktischen Anwendungen. Dem vertieften Verständnis dient die Beschreibung erprobter Praktikumsversuche. Die Autoren gehören zu einer der weltweit führenden Forschungsgruppen auf diesem Gebiet, lassen aber auch ihre langjährige Lehrerfahrung in dieses neue Buch einfließen.

Designed for a sophomore/junior course in analytical chemistry or quantitative analysis, this text focuses on the quantitative aspects of the discipline using a unified approach. Emphasis is placed on developing visual tools for understanding complicated solution equilibria. To these ends, extensive use is made of graphical methods, such as the easily sketched stick diagrams, which can be used to guide analytical calculations and takes the guesswork out of numerical approximations. Optional spreadsheet exercises are closely integrated with the text and can therefore serve to introduce the student to the use of computers for chemical calculations.
