Analytical Chemistry : A Chemist and Laboratory Technician's Toolkit (Hardcover) (Bryan M. Ham & Aihui
about this item
A comprehensive study of analytical chemistry providing the basics of analytical chemistry and introductions to the laboratory
- Covers the basics of a chemistry lab including lab safety, glassware, and common instrumentation
- Covers fundamentals of analytical techniques such as wet chemistry, instrumental analyses, spectroscopy, chromatography, FTIR, NMR, XRF, XRD, HPLC, GC-MS, Capillary Electrophoresis, and proteomics
- Includes ChemTech an interactive program that contains lesson exercises, useful calculators and an interactive periodic table
- Details Laboratory Information Management System a program used to log in samples, input data, search samples, approve samples, and print reports and certificates of analysis
This book combines both a traditional hardcover book with an electronic version contained in an analytical chemistry toolkit program. The book begins with an introduction to the laboratory including safety and lab basics, and then moves through the fundamentals of analytical techniques such as spectroscopy and chromatography, most common lab instrumentation, and examples of laboratory programs such as laboratory information management systems (LIMS). A very useful computer program LIMS is used to input data, track sample progress, record sample data such as company, type, and tests needed and so forth. In the LIMS chapter an example is given that we will be used to log in samples, input data, search samples, approve samples, and print reports and certificates of analysis (C of A).
The book also includes a companion teaching, reference, and toolkit program called ChemTech. The ChemTech program contains lesson exercises that stress and review topics covered in the book. Also included are useful calculators, an interactive periodic table, and a copy of all of the chapters of the book that can be opened and read on a computer or other electronic devices.
