This authoritative compendium updates and replaces the first edition, which proved so valuable for all who needed to use the officially recommended analytical nomenclature mandated by IUPAC. Since the first edition the demand for new analytical procedures has increased steadily and at the same time the diversity of the techniques has expanded and the quality and performance characteristics of the procedures have come to be a focus of interest. New types of instrumental and automatic techniques have emerged and computerization has taken over. The scope of analytical chemistry has been widened as the question to be answered was not only the chemical composition of the sample, but also the structure of substances, and changes in composition and structure in space and time. This new volume will be an indispensable reference resource for the coming decade.
