Such methods underpin high quality analyses in areas such as the safety of food, water and medicines, environmental monitoring, and chemical manufacturing. The treatment throughout emphasises the underlying statistical ideas, and no detailed knowledge of mathematics is required. There are numerous worked examples, including the use of Microsoft Excel and Minitab, and a large number of student exercises, many of them based on examples from the analytical literature. Key features expanded treatment of control charts additions to cover single point calibration and method comparison techniques extended treatment of robust methods major additions to sections on multivariate regression numerous worked examples, using Microsoft Excel and Minitab an attractive two-colour text design updated Instructors¿ manual improved website including examples for lecturers and students This book is aimed at undergraduate and graduate courses in Analytical Chemistry and related topics. It will also be a valuable resource for researchers and chemists working in analytical chemistry. Professor James Milleris Emeritus Professor of Analytical Chemistry at Loughborough University.
