Readership: Undergraduates at all levels studying a degree in Chemistry or related subjects including Forensic Science, Environmental Science, or Chemical Pathology, who are taking a module in Analytical Science.
Also suitable for use as a reference text by postgraduate Analytical Chemists.
Séamus P J Higson, Professor of Bio and Electroanalytical Science, Cranfield University
"It is essential that students have access to good textbooks, which give enough information to be useful to the specialist but do not overwhelm those begining in the subject. Higson had gone a long way towards providing such a book, which I am certain will be used widely in teaching analytical chemistry." - Education in Chemistry 2004.
"There is a simple design with well laid out text and uncomplicated diagrams. I particularly like the diagrams as they are very clear and would be easy for students to reproduce. The author has eradicated mathematics wherever possible, which will be popular with undergraduates." - Chemistry
