A collection of infrared and Raman spectra of 500 natural and synthetic polymers of industrial importance is presented in this book. A large variety of compounds are included, starting with linear polyolefins and finishing with complex biopolymers and related compounds. The spectra were registered using Infrared Fourier Transform Spectrometers in the laboratory of the All-Russia Institute of Forensic Sciences. The IR and Raman spectra are presented together on the same sheet. The accompanying data include general and structure formulae, CAS register numbers, and sample preparation conditions. Features of this book: • Continues the long tradition of publishing specific and standard data of new chemical compounds. • For low-molecular weight substances, complementary IR and Raman spectra are featured on the same sample and printed on the same page. This "fingerprint" data allows the substance of the sample to be identified without doubt. • An important feature of this unique collection of data is the increase in the identification precision of unknown substances. • Peak tables are available in digital (ASCII) format, on a diskette delivered with the book. This allows the user to search for unknowns. • All the spectra in the collection are base-line corrected. This book will be of interest to scientists involved in the synthesis of new polymeric materials, polymer identification, and quality control. Libraries of scientific institutes, research centers, and universities involved in vibrational spectroscopy will also find this collection invaluable.

Advances in Food Authenticity Testing covers a topic that is of great importance to both the food industry whose responsibility it is to provide clear and accurate labeling of their products and maintain food safety and the government agencies and organizations that are tasked with the verification of claims of food authenticity. The adulteration of foods with cheaper alternatives has a long history, but the analytical techniques which can be implemented to test for these are ever advancing. The book covers the wide range of methods and techniques utilized in the testing of food authenticity, including new implementations and processes. The first part of the book examines, in detail, the scientific basis and the process of how these techniques are used, while other sections highlight specific examples of the use of these techniques in the testing of various foods. Written by experts in both academia and industry, the book provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of this important and rapidly progressing field. Covers a topic that is of great importance to both the food industry and the governmental agencies tasked with verifying the safety and authenticity of food products Presents a wide range of methods and techniques utilized in the testing of food authenticity, including new implementations and processes Highlights specific examples of the use of the emerging techniques and testing strategies for various foods

Concerns about environmental pollution, global climate change and hazards to human health have increased dramatically. This has led to a call for change in chemical processes including those that are part of chemical analysis. The development of analytical chemistry continues and every new discovery in chemistry, physics, molecular biology, and materials science brings new opportunities and challenges. Yet, contemporary analytical chemistry does not consume resources optimally. Indeed, the usage of toxic chemical compounds is at the highest rate ever. All this makes the emerging field of green chemistry a “hot topic” in industrial, governmental laboratories as well as in academia. This book starts by introducing the twelve principles of green chemistry. It then goes on to discuss how the principles of green chemistry can be used to assess the ‘greenness’ of analytical methodologies. The ‘green profile’ proposed by the ACS Green Chemistry Institute is also presented. A chapter on “Greening” sample preparation describes approaches to minimizing toxic solvent use, using non-toxic alternatives, and saving energy. The chapter on instrumental methods describes existing analytical approaches that are inherently green and making non-green methods greener. The final chapter on signal acquisition describes how quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR) ideas could reduce experimental work thus making analysis greener. The book concludes with a discussion of how green chemistry is both possible and necessary. Green Analytical Chemistry is aimed at managers of analytical laboratories but will also interest teachers of analytical chemistry and green public policy makers.

"The book also assesses the information contribution of key chemometric methods, such as cluster analysis, pattern recognition, and factorial data analysis, useful in multivariate or multicomponent analysis. This discussion, in turn, provides insight into the true character of multivariate data analysis, revealing it as not simply a string of single-component analyses done simultaneously, but rather a fragile, potentially bias-ridden mechanism with unique interpretive potential of its own." "Complete with tables, diagrams, and examples, Information Theory in Analytical Chemistry is a practical handbook of enhanced analytical techniques that can sharply improve the quality of data collection as well as a user's understanding of the significance of information theory in each step of the entire chemical analysis process."--BOOK JACKET.

Photoacoustic Infrared Spectroscopy

Photoacoustic infrared spectroscopy differs from traditional infrared spectroscopy in one important way: in its most common implementation, a microphone is used to detect acoustic waves that result from absorption of infrared radiation by a sample. In other words, no optical detector is required to quantify the amount of incident radiation taken up by the sample. This gas-microphone method is one of a series of photoacoustic and photothermal techniques now being used for characterization and analysis of solids, liquids, and gases. Photoacoustic Infrared Spectroscopy represents the most comprehensive resource on this important, emerging technique. Kirk Michaelian’s trenchant study serves as both a text and reference for a broad community of academic and industrial scientists conducting extensive research and applications in photoacoustic infrared spectroscopy. Chapters include: Evolution of Photoacoustic Infrared Spectroscopy Experimental Methods Depth Profiling Numerical Methods Applications of Photoacoustic Infrared Spectroscopy Quantitative Analysis Special Topics Physicists, chemists, and spectroscopists in both academic and industrial laboratories, polymer and organic chemists, analysts in industry, forensic and government laboratories, and materials scientists will find Photoacoustic Infrared Spectroscopy to be a vital resource.
