Written as a training manual for chemistry-based laboratory technicians, this thoroughly updated fourth edition of the bestselling Analytical Chemistry for Technicians emphasizes the applied aspects rather than the theoretical ones. The book begins with classical quantitative analysis and follows with a practical approach to the complex world of sophisticated electronic instrumentation commonly used in real-world laboratories. Providing a foundation for the two key qualities—the analytical mindset and a basic understanding of the analytical instrumentation—this book helps prepare individuals for success on the job. Chapters cover sample preparation; gravimetric analysis; titrimetric analysis; instrumental analysis; spectrochemical methods, such as atomic spectroscopy and UV-Vis and IR molecular spectrometry; chromatographic techniques, including gas chromatography and high-performance liquid chromatography; electroanalytical methods; and more. Incorporating an additional ten years of teaching experience since the publication of the third edition, the author has made significant updates and enhancements to the fourth edition. More than 150 new photographs and either new or reworked drawings spanning every chapter to assist the visual learner A new chapter on mass spectrometry, covering GC-MS, LC-MS, LC-MS-MS, and ICP-MS Thirteen new laboratory experiments An introductory section before chapter 1 to give students a preview of general laboratory considerations, safety, laboratory notebooks, and instrumental analysis Additional end-of-chapter problems, expanded "report"-type questions, and inclusion of relevant section headings in the Questions and Problems sections Application Notes in each chapter An appendix providing a glossary of quality assurance and good laboratory practice (GLP) terms

The second edition of Analytical Chemistry for Technicians provides the "nuts and bolts" of analytical chemistry and focuses on the practical aspects for training a technician-level laboratory worker. This edition presents new and expanded chapters, innumerable questions and problems, and modified experiments that present a fresh and challenging approach. Some of the topics that have been expanded include chemical equilibrium, chromatography, Kjeldahl method, and molarity and moles where EDTA and water hardness calculations are concerned. New discussions of the Ag/AgCl and combination pH electrodes have been added, while the discussion of ion-selective electrodes has been expanded. The chapter introducing instrumental analysis and computers now includes discussions of "y = mx + b" and the method of least squares. The book also includes discussions of FTIR, topics of NMR, and mass spectrometry, which are found in the new infrared spectrometry chapter.
