This practical book in instrumental analytics conveys an overview of important methods of analysis and enables the reader to realistically learn the (principally technology-independent) working techniques the analytical chemist uses to develop methods and conduct validation. What is to be conveyed to the student is the fact that analysts in their capacity as problem-solvers perform services for certain groups of customers, i.e., the solution to the problem should in any case be processed in such a way as to be "fit for purpose". The book presents sixteen experiments in analytical chemistry laboratory courses. They consist of the classical curriculum used at universities and universities of applied sciences with chromatographic procedures, atom spectrometric methods, sensors and special methods (e.g. field flow fractionation , flow injection analysis and N-determination according to Kjeldahl). The carefully chosen combination of theoretical description of the methods of analysis and the detailed instructions given are what characterizes this book. The instructions to the experiments are so detailed that the measurements can, for the most part, be taken without the help of additional literature. The book is complemented with tips for effective literature and database research on the topics of organisation and the practical workflow of experiments in analytical laboratory, on the topic of the use of laboratory logs as well as on writing technical reports and grading them (Evaluation Guidelines for Laboratory Experiments). A small introduction to Quality Management, a brief glance at the history of analytical chemistry as well as a detailed appendix on the topic of safety in analytical laboratories and a short introduction to the new system of grading and marking chemicals using the "Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS)", round off this book. This book is therefore an indispensable workbook for students, internship assistants and lecturers (in the area of chemistry, biotechnology, food technology and environmental technology) in the basic training programme of analytics at universities and universities of applied sciences.

Written as an introductory food science textbook that excites students and fosters learning, the first edition of Introducing Food Science broke new ground. With an easy-to-read format and innovative sections such as Looking Back, Remember This!, and Looking Ahead, it quickly became popular with students and professors alike. This newly revised second edition keeps the features that made the first edition so well liked, while adding updated information as well as new tables, figures, exercises, and problems. See What’s New in the Second Edition: New chapter Sustainability and Distribution Approximately 60 new tables and figures New section at the end of each chapter with problems / exercises to test comprehension Now includes a glossary The book consists of four sections with each one building on the previous section to provide a logical structure and cohesiveness. It contains a series of problems at the end of each chapter to help students test their ability to comprehend the material and to provide instructors a reservoir for assignments, class discussions, and test questions. At least one problem at the end of each chapter involves a calculation so that students can strengthen their quantitative skills. The text introduces the basics of food science and then building on this foundation, explores it sub-disciplines. The well-rounded presentation conveys both commercial and scientific perspectives, providing a true flavor of food science and preparing students for future studies in this field.

This reference manual contains information on the most suitable procedures for the analysis of agricultural materials. It describes the analysis of soils and composts, plant materials, feeds, plant components (e.g. cellulose, lignin, trace elements), fertilizers, and biological substances. The book is designed as a laboratory sourcebook, complete with useful Internet addresses, and contains over 60 different practical methods. Each method is described by a step-by-step approach, and contains details of apparatus required, chemical reaction equations, formulae and calculations, and meticulous descriptions of experimental results. Most methods use standard equipment and instruments commonly found in the practical lab. The aim is that scientists with little experience in analytical techniques should be able to safely carry out these procedures and obtain acceptable results.

This new edition of a successful, bestselling book continues toprovide you with practical information on the use of statisticalmethods for solving real-world problems in complex industrialenvironments. Complete with examples from the chemical andpharmaceutical laboratory and manufacturing areas, this thoroughlyupdated book clearly demonstrates how to obtain reliable results bychoosing the most appropriate experimental design and dataevaluation methods. Unlike other books on the subject, Statistical Methods inAnalytical Chemistry, Second Edition presents and solves problemsin the context of a comprehensive decision-making process under GMPrules: Would you recommend the destruction of a $100,000 batch ofproduct if one of four repeat determinations barely fails thespecification limit? How would you prevent this from happening inthe first place? Are you sure the calculator you are using istelling the truth? To help you control these situations, the newedition: * Covers univariate, bivariate, and multivariate data * Features case studies from the pharmaceutical and chemicalindustries demonstrating typical problems analysts encounter andthe techniques used to solve them * Offers information on ancillary techniques, including a shortintroduction to optimization, exploratory data analysis, smoothingand computer simulation, and recapitulation of errorpropagation * Boasts numerous Excel files and compiled Visual Basic programs-nostatistical table lookups required! * Uses Monte Carlo simulation to illustrate the variabilityinherent in statistically indistinguishable data sets Statistical Methods in Analytical Chemistry, Second Edition is anexcellent, one-of-a-kind resource for laboratory scientists andengineers and project managers who need to assess data reliability;QC staff, regulators, and customers who want to frame realisticrequirements and specifications; as well as educators looking forreal-life experiments and advanced students in chemistry andpharmaceutical science. From the reviews of Statistical Methods in Analytical Chemistry,First Edition: "This book is extremely valuable. The authors supply many veryuseful programs along with their source code. Thus, the user cancheck the authenticity of the result and gain a greaterunderstanding of the algorithm from the code. It should be on thebookshelf of every analytical chemist."-Applied Spectroscopy "The authors have compiled an interesting collection of data toillustrate the application of statistical methods . . . includingcalibrating, setting detection limits, analyzing ANOVA data,analyzing stability data, and determining the influence of errorpropagation."-Clinical Chemistry "The examples are taken from a chemical/pharmaceutical environment,but serve as convenient vehicles for the discussion of when to usewhich test, and how to make sense out of the results. Whilepractical use of statistics is the major concern, it is put intoperspective, and the reader is urged to use plausibilitychecks."-Journal of Chemical Education "The discussion of univariate statistical tests is one of the morethorough I have seen in this type of book . . . The treatment oflinear regression is also thorough, and a complete set of equationsfor uncertainty in the results is presented . . . The bibliographyis extensive and will serve as a valuable resource for thoseseeking more information on virtually any topic covered in thebook."-Journal of American Chemical Society "This book treats the application of statistics to analyticalchemistry in a very practical manner. [It] integrates PC computingpower, testing programs, and analytical know-how in the context ofgood manufacturing practice/good laboratory practice (GMP/GLP) . ..The book is of value in many fields of analytical chemistry andshould be available in all relevant libraries."-Chemometrics andIntelligent Laboratory Systems
