Summary

Trace Environmental Quantitative Analysis: Principles, Techniques, and Applications, Second Edition offers clear and relevant explanations of the principles and practice of selected analytical instrumentation involved in trace environmental quantitative analysis (TEQA). The author updates each chapter to reflect the latest improvements in TEQA that have resulted in greater levels of sensitivity.

The book begins with an overview of regulatory and EPA methods, followed by quantitative data reduction and interpretation of analytical results, sample preparation, and analytical instrumentation. Among the more than two-dozen new topics are the underlying principles of GC-MS, GC-MS-MS, LC-MS, and ICP-MS, column chromatographic cleanup, gel permeation chromatography, applications to biological sample matrices, and matrix solid-phase dispersion. The chapter on sample preparation now includes more alternatives to liquid-liquid extraction, highlighting Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME), and Stir Bar Sorptive Extraction (SBSE). The final chapter contains laboratory-tested experiments to practice the techniques appearing in the text. Appendices include a convenient glossary, applications to drinking water, computer programs for TEQA, instrument designs, and useful Internet links for practicing environmental analytical chemists.

Featuring personal insight into the theory and practice of trace analysis from a bench analytical chemist, the second edition of Trace Environmental Quantitative Analysis takes readers from the fundamental principles to state-of-the-art methods of TEQA currently used in leading laboratories.
