QCA is the bestselling textbook of choice for analytical chemistry. It offers a modern portrait of the techniques of chemical analysis, backed by a wealth of real world applications. This edition features new coverage of spectroscopy and statistics, new pedagogy and enhanced lecturer support.
This book covers both fundamental and practical aspects of chemical analysis: Data Process and Analysis; Chemical Equilibria and Volumetric titrations; Gravimetry; Spectrophotometry; Sample Preparation and Separation Methods in Quantitative Analysis. It was written with the rich tradition of teaching at Peking University College of Chemistry, and edited by an American professor who was personally sensitive to the needs of students learning science from traditional chemistry textbooks written in English. Many examples and illustrative problems in this text have been taken from previous textbooks by the Peking University Team Teaching Program. The book can be used as a starter in analytical chemistry which is fundamental and the base upon which chemistry is built. Traditional chapters of initial learning in analytical chemistry are included, such as volumetric, gravimetric and separation methods; the book also includes key chapters on problem solving relating to recent progress in analytical chemistry.
Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
The gold standard in analytical chemistry, Dan Harris’ Quantitative Chemical Analysis provides a sound physical understanding of the principles of analytical chemistry and their applications in the disciplines.
