This popular textbook gives a clear account of the principles of the main statistical methods used in modern analytical laboratories. 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 Miller is Emeritus Professor of Analytical Chemistry at Loughborough University. He has published numerous reviews and papers on analytical techniques and been awarded the SAC Silver Medal, the Theophilus Redwood Lectureship and the SAC Gold Medal by the Royal Society of Chemsitry. A Past President of the Analytical Division of the RSC, he is a member of the Society's Council and has served on the editorial boards of many analytical and spectroscopic journals.Dr Jane Miller completed a PhD at Cambridge University's Cavendish Laboratory and is an experienced teacher of mathematics and physics at higher education and 6th form levels.

At a time when computerized laboratory automation is producing a da ta explosion, chemists are turning to applied mathematics and statistics for the tools to extract useful chemical information from data. This rush to find applicable methods has lead to a somewhat confusing body of literature that represents a barrier to chemists wishing to learn more about chemometrics. The confusion results partly from the mixing of chemical notation and nomenclature with those of statistics, applied mathematics and engineering. Additionally, in the absence of collaboration with mathematicians, chemists have, at times, misused data analysis methodology and even reinvented methods that have seen years of service in other fields. The Chemometrics Society has worked hard to solve this problem since it was founded in 1974 with the goal of improving communications between the chemical sciences and applied mathe matics and statistics. The NATO Advanced Study Institute on Chemometrics is evidence of this fact as it was initiated in response to a call from its membership for advanced training in several areas of chemometrics. This Institute focused on current theory and application in the new field of Chemometrics: Use of mathematical and statistical methods, Ca) to design or select optimal measurement procedures and experiments; and Cb) to provide maximum chemical information by analyzing chemical data. The Institute had two formal themes and two informal themes.

This new edition of a successful, bestselling book continues toprovide you with practical information on the use of statisticalmethods for solving real-world problems in complex industrialenvironments. Complete with examples from the chemical andpharmaceutical laboratory and manufacturing areas, this thoroughlyupdated book clearly demonstrates how to obtain reliable results bychoosing the most appropriate experimental design and dataevaluation methods. Unlike other books on the subject, Statistical Methods inAnalytical Chemistry, Second Edition presents and solves problemsin the context of a comprehensive decision-making process under GMPrules: Would you recommend the destruction of a $100,000 batch ofproduct if one of four repeat determinations barely fails thespecification limit? How would you prevent this from happening inthe first place? Are you sure the calculator you are using istelling the truth? To help you control these situations, the newedition: * Covers univariate, bivariate, and multivariate data * Features case studies from the pharmaceutical and chemicalindustries demonstrating typical problems analysts encounter andthe techniques used to solve them * Offers information on ancillary techniques, including a shortintroduction to optimization, exploratory data analysis, smoothingand computer simulation, and recapitulation of errorpropagation * Boasts numerous Excel files and compiled Visual Basic programs-nostatistical table lookups required! * Uses Monte Carlo simulation to illustrate the variabilityinherent in statistically indistinguishable data sets Statistical Methods in Analytical Chemistry, Second Edition is anexcellent, one-of-a-kind resource for laboratory scientists andengineers and project managers who need to assess data reliability;QC staff, regulators, and customers who want to frame realisticrequirements and specifications; as well as educators looking forreal-life experiments and advanced students in chemistry andpharmaceutical science. From the reviews of Statistical Methods in Analytical Chemistry,First Edition: "This book is extremely valuable. The authors supply many veryuseful programs along with their source code. Thus, the user cancheck the authenticity of the result and gain a greaterunderstanding of the algorithm from the code. It should be on thebookshelf of every analytical chemist."-Applied Spectroscopy "The authors have compiled an interesting collection of data toillustrate the application of statistical methods . . . includingcalibrating, setting detection limits, analyzing ANOVA data,analyzing stability data, and determining the influence of errorpropagation."-Clinical Chemistry "The examples are taken from a chemical/pharmaceutical environment,but serve as convenient vehicles for the discussion of when to usewhich test, and how to make sense out of the results. Whilepractical use of statistics is the major concern, it is put intoperspective, and the reader is urged to use plausibilitychecks."-Journal of Chemical Education "The discussion of univariate statistical tests is one of the morethorough I have seen in this type of book . . . The treatment oflinear regression is also thorough, and a complete set of equationsfor uncertainty in the results is presented . . . The bibliographyis extensive and will serve as a valuable resource for thoseseeking more information on virtually any topic covered in thebook."-Journal of American Chemical Society "This book treats the application of statistics to analyticalchemistry in a very practical manner. [It] integrates PC computingpower, testing programs, and analytical know-how in the context ofgood manufacturing practice/good laboratory practice (GMP/GLP) . ..The book is of value in many fields of analytical chemistry andshould be available in all relevant libraries."-Chemometrics andIntelligent Laboratory Systems
