Since the turn of the twenty-first century, applications of ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) have diversified, expanding their utility in the military and security spheres and entering the realms of clinical practice and pharmaceutical exploration. Updated and expanded, the third edition of Ion Mobility Spectrometry begins with a comprehensive discussion of the fundamental theory and practice of IMS. Divided into four sections—Overview, Technology, Fundamentals, and Applications—the authors treat innovations and advances in all aspects of IMS in a fresh, thorough, and revised format. Features: Introduces the definitions, theory, and practice of IMS and summarizes its history from the beginnings of the study of ions to present commercial and scholarly activities Presents the technology of IMS from a measurement perspective—covering inlet through ion formation, ion injection, electric fields, drift tube structures, and detectors Covers the end results of measurement, the mobility spectrum, and the transformative trend of ion mobility: mass spectrometry Discusses the influence on the experimental parameters on the mobility of ions Mobility-based methods are no longer restricted to volatile substances and indeed the many benefits of this technology—simplicity, convenience, and the low cost of technology—have become recognized as meritorious in a wide range of uses. This is also true for the advantages of measurements—high speed, distinctive spectral features, and operation in ambient pressure with thermalized ions. Ion Mobility Spectrometry, Third Edition serves specialists in the field of IMS who are interested in the potential of recent developments and researchers, engineers, and students who want a comprehensive overview of this technology.

Chromatographic Analysis of the Environment, Third Edition is a detailed handbook on different chromatographic analysis techniques and chromatographic data for compounds found in air, water, soil, and sludge. Taking on a new perspective from previous editions, this third edition discusses the parameters of each environmental compartment in a consistent format that highlights preparation techniques, chromatographic separation methods, and detection methods. Most of the data are compiled in tables and figures to elucidate the text as needed. Separate chapters approach specific aspects of sampling methods especially designed for environmental purposes, quantification of environmental analytes in difficult matrices, and data handling. The second part of the book focuses on the analysis of hazardous chemicals in the environment, including volatile organic carbons (VOCs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs). In addition, the authors feature information on compounds such as phosphates, organic acids, halogenated VOCs, amines, and n-ntirosamines, isocyanates, phthalate esters, and humic substances. Presenting important theoretical and practical aspects from sample collection to laboratory analysis, Chromatographic Analysis of the Environment, Third Edition is a unique resource of chromatographic techniques, data, and references that are useful to all scientists involved in the analysis of environmental compounds.

Mit Massenspektrometrie – ein Lehrbuch liegt ein Werk vor, das mit seiner umfassenden, präzisen Darstellung sowie seinen vielen gelungenen Illustrationen und Fotos eine Lücke auf dem deutschsprachigen Markt schließt. Dieses im englischsprachigen Raum bereits gut etablierte Buch führt auf grundlegende Weise an die Massenspektrometrie heran, indem es die Prinzipien, Methoden und Anwendungen logisch aufeinander aufbauend erklärt. Schritt für Schritt lernt der Leser, was diese analytische Methode leisten kann, auf welch vielfältige Art Massenspektrometer isolierte Ionen in der Gasphase erzeugen, selektieren und manipulieren können und wie man aus den resultierenden Massenspektren analytische Information gewinnt. Moderne sanfte Ionisationsmethoden wie ESI, APCI oder MALDI, klassische Verfahren wie EI, CI, FAB oder FD, Oberflächentechniken wie DESI oder DART und elementmassenspektrometrische Verfahren werden didaktisch durchdacht behandelt. Studienanfänger werden von dem Werk ebenso profitieren wie Fortgeschrittene und Praktiker. Ergänzend zum Buch betreibt der Autor eine frei zugängliche (englischsprachige) Internetseite mit zahlreichen Übungsaufgaben, Lösungen und Bonus-Material unter http://www.ms-textbook.com

Building on the success of the previous editions, Textbook of Drug Design and Discovery has been thoroughly revised and updated to provide a complete source of information on all facets of drug design and discovery for students of chemistry, pharmacy, pharmacology, biochemistry, and medicine. The book follows drug design from the initial lead identification through optimization and structure-activity relationship with reference to the final processes of clinical evaluation and registration. Chapters investigate the design of enzyme inhibitors and drugs for particular cellular targets such as ion channels and receptors, and also explore specific classes of drug such as peptidomimetics, antivirals and anticancer agents. The use of gene technology in pharmaceutical research, computer modeling techniques, and combinatorial approaches are also included.
