Book cover

Modern Chemical Techniques: An Essential Reference for Students and Teachers Author: Ben Faust


About this book

Analytical techniques are powerful tools in a chemist's armoury and this book identifies some of the most important chemical techniques currently in use, along with their applications. Aimed at those with some familiarity with modern chemical techniques, as well as those completely new to them, the book covers much of the basic theory without emphasising the mathematics and physics involved. Where appropriate, descriptions of the instrumentation and sample preparation are included, as are problems with example solutions. More advanced ideas are presented in highlighted boxes, so the novice can happily skip these if desired. Modern Chemical Techniques is based on a series of 'hands-on' symposia that enabled individuals to update their chemical skills and learn about the newest methods, techniques, and instrumentation available. The resource material presented at the symposia is published here, developed and extended into an accessible, illustrated book, making the valuable information it contained available to a much wider audience.
