The importance of accurate sample preparation techniques cannot beoverstated--meticulous sample preparation is essential. Oftenoverlooked, it is the midway point where the analytes from thesample matrix are transformed so they are suitable for analysis.Even the best analytical techniques cannot rectify problemsgenerated by sloppy sample pretreatment. Devoted entirely to teaching and reinforcing these necessarypretreatment steps, Sample Preparation Techniques in AnalyticalChemistry addresses diverse aspects of this important measurementstep. These include: * State-of-the-art extraction techniques for organic and inorganicanalytes * Sample preparation in biological measurements * Sample pretreatment in microscopy * Surface enhancement as a sample preparation tool in Raman and IRspectroscopy * Sample concentration and clean-up methods * Quality control steps Designed to serve as a text in an undergraduate or graduate levelcurriculum, Sample Preparation Techniques in Analytical Chemistryalso provides an invaluable reference tool for analytical chemistsin the chemical, biological, pharmaceutical, environmental, andmaterials sciences.

A volume in the Emerging Issues in Analytical Chemistry series, The Analytical Chemistry of Cannabis: Quality Assessment, Assurance, and Regulation of Medicinal Marijuana and Cannabinoid Preparations provides analytical chemistry methods that address the latest issues surrounding cannabis-based products. The plethora of marketed strains of cannabis and cannabinoid-containing products, combined with the lack of industry standards and labelling requirements, adds to the general perception of poor quality control and limited product oversight. The methods described in this leading-edge volume help to support the manufacturing, labelling, and distribution of safe and consistent products with known chemical content and demonstrated performance characteristics. It treats analytical chemistry within the context of the diverse issues surrounding medicinal and recreational cannabis in a manner designed to foster understanding and rational perspective in non-scientist stakeholders as well as scientists who are concerned with bringing a necessary degree of order to a field now characterized by confusion and contradiction. The Emerging Issues in Analytical Chemistry series is published in partnership with RTI International and edited by Brian F. Thomas.

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

Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry are usually presented as a sum of chemical and physical foundations, laws, axioms and equations for analytical methods and procedures. In contrast, this book delivers a practice-oriented, general guiding theory valid for all methods and techniques. The metrological foundations included define strictly the figures of merit in order to minimize confusions still appearing in Analytical Chemistry publications today.
