The determination of the concentrations of molecules in samples has long been an important application of spectroscopy. In the last 20 years advances in algorithms, computers, instruments, and software have led to a growing interest in this field. These developments mean samples and analytes that were once considered intractable are increasingly yielding usable calibrations. The purpose of this book is to give readers, without an advanced math background, a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of modern quantitative spectroscopic analysis. The author has placed great emphasis on providing the reader with everything they need to know to obtain a fundamental understanding of quantitative spectroscopy.

Review quote

"The central idea of the book is to encourage
readers without a spectroscopic background to consider the criticalaspects of calibrations in order to achieve high quality analysis results. Perhaps the most attractive feature of this book is its thoroughness, without being overbearingly long. It contains everything needed for a fundamental understanding of quantitative spectroscopy in a
nice 200-page book with a clear index and glossary."
