Description

With the ever increasing number of samples to be assayed in agronomical laboratories and servicing stations, fertilizer and food industries, sugar factories, water treatment plants, biomedical laboratories, drug quality control, and environmental research, the interest for automated chemical analysis has been increasing. In this context, flow analysis is very attractive, as they the flow-based procedures are characterized by enhanced analytical figures of merit. Moreover, the flow analysers do not usually require sophisticated and expensive instrumentation, are amenable to full automation and to miniaturization, and are well suited for in situ analyses. The tendency to carry out traditional methods of analysis in the flow analyser has becoming more pronounced, especially in relation to large-scale routine analyses. The technology of solution handling has become more and more improved, leading to enhanced strategies for chemical assays. Consequently, different modalities of flow analysis (e.g. SFA, FIA, SIA) have been conceived, developed and applied to solve real problems. Most of the flow-based analytical procedures presently in use, however, do not exploit the full potential of flow analysis. The main object of the book is then to provide a scientific basis and to familiarise a wide community of researchers, students, technicians, etc with the uses of flow analysis. Emphasis is given to spectrophotometric and luminometric detection, in relation to agronomical, geological, industrial, pharmaceutical and environmental applications. The book includes historical and theoretical aspects, recent achievements in instrumentation, guidelines for methodology implementation, and applications. It serves also as an applications-oriented text book.

Review Text

"The book is clearly written and comprehensive. This monograph could be used as a textbook both for advanced courses and for experienced researchers in different fields who would like to obtain detailed information about flow techniques."-- Anal Bioanal Chem, 2012, Volume 403 "The aim [of this book] is to provide the reader with the most important basic aspects of flow techniques, according to the experience of the authors. In this sense, a detailed overview of the use of spectrophotometric and luminometric detection is presented with some details which may be scarcely found in other similar books. Some injection devices developed by the Brazilian Center for Nuclear Energy in Agriculture (CENA) are presented in detail. All the chapters end with an interesting and useful list of references. Summary The book is clearly written and comprehensive. This monograph could be used as a textbook both for advanced courses and for experienced researchers in different fields who would like to obtain detailed information about flow techniques."-- Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, (2012) 403:1465-1466

About Paul Worsfold

Alan Townshend holds B.Sc., Ph.D. and D.Sc., degrees from the University of Birmingham, where he lectured in analytical chemistry from 1964-80. He moved to the University of Hull in 1980, and became Professor of Analytical Chemistry in 1984. He has served twice as Dean of the School of Chemistry, and currently holds the G.F. Grant Chair of Chemistry. He is also Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Science, and Director of the Institute for Chemistry in Industry. He has published ca. 300 scientific papers, his main research interests currently being in analytical applications of chemiluminscence and of immobilised reagents (especially enzymes) and in flow injection analysis. Professor Townshend is a senior editor of Analytica Chimica Acta, and was Editor-in-Chief of the Encyclopedia of Analytical Science (Academic Press, 1985) and the Dictionary of Analytical Reagents (Chapman and Hall, 1993). He was President of the Analytical Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) (1996-98) and is currently Chairman of the RSC's Committee for Accreditation and Validation. He serves on the Steering Group of the UK Analytical Partnership and has recently completed a 4-year stint on the Council of the Analytical Chemistry Division of the Federation of European Chemical Societies.
