The book, now in its second edition, provides a clear and concise understanding of the principles, applications and limitations of the various techniques involved in analytical chemistry. It motivates and prepares the students to face academic and research challenges in the field of analytical chemistry in performing analytical analysis and interpreting the results obtained.
The second edition, while retaining the flow of chapters—qualitative analysis, quantitative analysis, data analysis, analysis of organic compounds, separation and purification techniques, electroanalytical techniques and spectroanalytical techniques, introduces a new chapter on Thermoanalytical Techniques that discusses thermogravimetric analysis, derivative thermogravimetric analysis and differential thermal analysis in detail. Intended primarily as a text for the undergraduate and postgraduate students (B.Sc. and M.Sc.) of chemistry, the book would also be of great benefit to the students who are appearing for NET and GATE examinations.KEY FEATURES
