The Use of Recovery Factors in Trace

The correct implementation of the ISO 14000 series
of International Standards is entirely dependent on valid measurements,
which in turn require the correct approach to recovery factors - yet
at present there is no International Standard or Guide on the correct
use of recovery factors. This means that it is incredibly problematic
to obtain a real picture of whether and when the use of recovery factors
is forbidden, tolerated, encouraged or required. Often the choice is
left to the analyst in charge, which is a clearly unacceptable situation.
The Use of Recovery Factors in Trace Analysis is a unique book, providing
in one volume, all of the most up-to-date information in this field.
Throughout, chemists of long experience in the use of recovery factors
review the present situation and offer practical solutions based on
their own experiences.
This book will form the basis for a document on conformity assessment
to standards proposed for acceptance by IUPAC, ISO, AOAC and Codex Alimentarius
Commission, making it a must for all those who work in analytical laboratories
involved in the chemistry of food, agriculture, the environment and
toxicology, as well as for academics.
