Review quote

"By any standards this is a superb production...The editorial and advisory boards, headed by Alan Townshend, are rolls of honour of the leading lights in analytical science...The encyclopedia is a fine starting point for almost any new problem."
"The Encyclopedia of Analytical Science...is highly recommended for public, academic, and corporate libraries."
"This comprehensive, encyclopedic set treats the basic and applied aspects of analytical chemistry...The level of presentation is suitable to the subject...There are good illustrations, some in color, and frequent relevant tables. The index volume usefully collects all references to a topic. This work would be a very appropriate purchase for a special library."
"The intent of this encyclopedia is to cover all aspects of modern analytical science, which is defined as the 'scientific discipline that develops and applies methods, instruments and strategies to obtain information on the composition of matter.' The intent was not to produce a procedural manual. Naturally, chemistry constitutes a large part of the focus, but analytical information also comes from biochemistry, physics, electronics, computer science, mathematics, and even economics, and these areas are well represented....The encyclopedia consists of more than 750 self-contained articles written by international experts covering three broad categories: specific analytical techniques such as masspectrometry and chemometrics: specific chemical or material samples, for example asbestos and drug; and analytes such as aluminum and cholesterol. All of the articles were well edited for readability and clarity. Thisis well worth the money and should prove useful in many science and technology collections from those with interests in amines to those interested in petroleum....this is not just for chemists and chemistry students--it is for every scientist and engineer."
