Principles of Instrumental Analysis - 6th edition

Principles of Instrumental Analysis (ISBN10: 0495012017; ISBN13: 9780495012016)
ISBN13: 978-0495012016
ISBN10: 0495012017

Summary: PRINCIPLES OF INSTRUMENTAL ANALYSIS has long been the standard for courses that deal with the principles and applications of modern analytical instruments. Now with their new Sixth Edition, authors Douglas A. Skoog, F. James Holler, and Stanley R. Crouch infuse their popular text with updated techniques as well as new Instrumental Analysis in Action case studies. The book's updated material enhances its proven approach, which places an emphasis on the theoretical basis moreof each type of instrument, its optimal area of application, its sensitivity, its precision, and its limitations. PRINCIPLES OF INSTRUMENTAL ANALYSIS also introduces students to elementary analog and digital electronics, computers, and treatment of analytical data. A book companion website is available, providing students with tutorials on instrumental methods, Excel files of data analysis and simulations of analytical techniques to help them visualize important concepts in this course, and selected papers from the chemical literature to stimulate interest and provide background information for study.


  • NEW! Six new Instrumental Analysis in Action features have been added to help students see the relevance of analytical chemistry. A Challenge Problem at the end of each chapter encourages students to read the literature of analytical chemistry and to apply principles and methods.
  • NEW! Many chapters contain spreadsheet examples with references to the APPLICATIONS OF MICROSOFT® EXCEL IN ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY (written by Crouch and Holler), and include corresponding end-of chapter spreadsheet problems.
  • The art program both aesthetically and pedagogically improves the text through the addition of color, grayscale screens, graph boxes, and photos of instrument systems.
  • The book's student-friendly presentation includes an active and engaging writing style.
  • PRINCIPLES OF INSTRUMENTAL ANALYSIS offers the most current data in its coverage and its end-of-chapter problem sets.
  • NEW! A second color has been added to most drawings to enable different levels of information to be conveyed more easily than with single-color drawings.
  • NEW! With the Sixth Edition, the authors add new and updated material on holographic filters; fiber optic sampling probes; glow-discharge sources for atomic spectrometry; FT-Raman; time-resolved resonance Raman; reflectance IR/ATR spectroscopy in Chapter 18, "Raman Spectroscopy"; array transducers for mass spectrometry; and bioanalytical applications of voltammetry in Chapter 25, "Voltammetry."
  • NEW! Chapter 1, "Introduction," now includes a section on calibration and standardization of instrumental methods as well as a discussion of performance criteria for instrumental methods. Chapter 7, "Components of Optical Instruments," now includes updated information on laser sources, array transducers, and FT instruments.
  • NEW! Chapter 10, "Atomic Emission Spectrometry," contains new information on plasma spectrometers including multi-channel, array detector systems, and laser-based plasma instruments. Chapter 12, "Atomic X-Ray Spectrometry," includes a discussion of modern bench top energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence instruments and a new discussion of multi-element data reduction methods for quantitative analysis.
  • NEW! Chapter 15, "Molecular Luminescence Spectrometry," includes new material on fluorescence quenching and fluorescence lifetimes measurements. Chapter 20, "Molecular Mass Spectrometry," includes expanded sections on MALDI and electrospray ionization. New material has been added dealing with ion-trap spectrometers and a new section on tandem mass spectrometry was added. Chapter 21, "Surface Characterization by Spectroscopy and Microscopy," now offers a general update of surface characterization methods.
  • NEW! Chapter 23, "Potentiometry," contains substantial new material on biosensors and biomedical applications of potentiometry. Chapter 25, "Voltammetry," has been updated, especially cyclic voltammetry, with a de-emphasis of polarography. Solid electrodes, thin-film electrodes, and microelectrodes have been emphasized.
  • NEW! Chapter 27, "Gas Chromatography," and Chapter 28, "Liquid Chromatography," have been rewritten to reflect current practice and modern instrumentation.
  • NEW! A general reorganization of thermal methods and updated instrumentation has been applied to Chapter 31, "Thermal Methods." A new Chapter 34, "Particle Size Analysis," provides greater coverage for students. less
