New, updated edition of a classic
Modern Practice of Gas Chromatography, Third Edition
Analytical chemists, technicians, and scientists in allied disciplines have come to regard this authoritative text as a standard reference on gas chromatography. In addition to serving as an invaluable reference for the experienced practitioner, this bestselling work provides the beginner with a solid understanding of gas chromatography theory and basic techniques. This new Third Edition incorporates the most recent developments in the field, including entirely new chapters on gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy (GC/MS), optimizing separations using GC, forensic applications of GC, and the use of injection systems. It offers expanded coverage of instrumentation and fully updated information on detectors, qualitative and quantitative analysis by GC, and environmental applications of GC. The latest IUPAC-recommended nomenclature is employed throughout. As in previous editions, contributing authors have been chosen for their expertise and active participation in their respective areas.
