Publisher: David T. The book provides a great alternative to comparable to the print textbooks I have used in the past for teaching Analytic chemistry.
I have just started using Harvey this year and I highly recommend the book for the analytical chemistry. The text Comprehensiveness rating: 5 see less. The text covers all the content in an undergraduate analytical chemistry course and the necessary fundamental contention to make it an excellent book and is at an appropriate level.
The book also does an excellent job introducing the spectroscopic and chromatographic topics. I have not noticed any errors and the content does align very well with the available print textbooks.
In addition, the content is accurate and it does provide some great examples. The topic covered is one of the most fundamental areas of chemistry which covers titrations, equilibrium, calculations among other calculations and statistics.
The book will be valid for years to come. The examples are good and are reflective of analytic chemistry. Like most textbooks in chemistry it can be taught in sequence or out of sequence without the previous chapter being necessary for the next chapter. The content arrangement of any analytic textbook. I did not see any major issues in the organization of the content.
I have not had issues with the interface to textbook and none of my current students have complained. I have not noticed any major grammatical errors in the text, it is very well written. There are some minor typos which are present in any book. It is a chemistry textbook and provides great fundament information in analytical chemistry.
It is a technical book and is culturally neutral. It is a great text for introduction analytical chemistry and provides great examples for the students. The book also a good foundation of knowledge for the students taking analytical chemistry.
The textbook provides an excellent online alternative to other analytical chemistry books. I have used this book and its previous edition for the last five years and I strongly recommend it.
The book offers a comprehensive coverage of analytical The book offers a comprehensive coverage of analytical topics with great emphasis on sampling and statistical analysis of data.
It also includes coverage of spectroscopic and chromatographic topics which makes the book useful for instrumental analysis courses as well. The content is definitely relevant and reflects current practices in the discipline. I particularly like the use of examples of analysis type of problems derived from the scholarly literature. The book is very clear and all terminology is adequately explained. However, I typically have to narrow down for students the coverage of a given topic as the author's discussion often goes beyond the scope of what I can cover in 10 weeks of instruction.
The book is organized in chapters that can be individually downloaded as pdf files. Thus an instructor has great flexibility in choosing which parts of the book to utilize. Each chapter is further organized with headings and subheadings, making the reading very straightforward.
The author does an excellent job in organizing any topics in a logical fashion. My only word of caution is that there is a lot of information that the instructor needs to sort out ahead of time to guide students to most important outcomes. The text is by no means insensitive or offensive. It is hard to be inclusive when discussing topics in analytical chemistry.
There are no references to a variety of races, ethnicity or backgrounds. This is an excellent textbook that provides a comprehensive coverage of any topic one would want to address in an analytical chemistry course.
After using this textbook for several years, I am very thankful that my students can access such high quality publication at no cost! This textbook is excellent as it is extensive for an introductory or basic course in analytical chemistry.
This text with more detail could also be a comprehensive reference text. The topics covered are designed to allow instructors to customize Comprehensiveness rating: 4 see less. The topics covered are designed to allow instructors to customize sections taught as covering all of this material in one semester as stated is not possible.
Having said that, I chose the section on acid base equilibrium to review. I appreciate the author for covering strong acid and weak acid titrations graphically and showing how pH values are calculated.
However, calculating pH for titrations involving polyprotic acids is not discussed. The titration curve is shown and only the important species before and after equivalence points are discussed. Also, pH for salts of diprotic acids is not discussed. While I feel that many areas are well explained in great detail with excellent real figures, I feel this topic is not as comprehensive as it could be. It is also important to note that many key spectroscopy techniques are included.
This is ideal as one text may be used for both Quantitative and Instrumental Analysis covering topics on the ACS Analytical exam in one semester. However, I do not see any sections devoted to discussing noise in instrumentation. As a specific example, I reviewed the atomic absorption section. This does discuss flame atomic absorption. However, there is no discussion on why the hollow cathode lamp is modulated to a higher frequency or a discussion on the importance of a lock in amplifier.
To be comprehensive, I feel this material should be included. Many instrumental methods are employed with microscope applications using fiber optics. I feel discussion on the use of fiber optics in instrumentation will permit modernizing the traditional instrumental topics covered. The goal of this as a reference text seemed to present several topics and allow the instructor to select topics to cover.
This text does that for introductory courses in Quantitative and Instrumental courses. This text is very easy to read and understand. All individuals should appreciate that. The examples, practice exercises and problems are easy to recognize, follow understand meaning this is a clear text to learn from. The text is consistent in format. It would be nice in the table of contents to see major headings consistently aligned. As with Organization, I really think that for example, Chapter 6, should be divided into separate chapters.
A lot of information and different titration methods are discussed in the same section making re-organization and realignment difficult. As I reviewed the chapter on titrations 6 , I found the information clear and presents a lot of material in the same breath so to speak. This chapter is about pages. Some topics, such as complexometric and redox titrations, need their own chapter.
This will permit breaking up the material into sections that the instructor can either gloss over or not cover. The grammar is well done with the exception of some verb tense issues as pointed out by other reviewers. This text is well written. This textbook is comprehensive for undergraduate courses in quantitative analysis and instrumental analysis. The chapter arrangement is logical and the linking feature in the PDF makes navigation to each page easy.
There is no glossary to search There is no glossary to search for key terms, but this is easily done using the search feature in a PDF viewer. The content is accurate and makes for an excellent reference book for students.
Many primary articles containing actual data are used as examples and end-of-chapter problems. I really like that the author includes how to do statistics and data analysis in Word and R. Because screen images of the software are not included, this information will not be obsolete and will be easy to update with new editions of Word. The language of the text is very easy to read, even for non-scientists. When esoteric vocabulary is necessary, it is defined or linked to a location in the text where there is more information.
There are ample graphs to explain statistics performed on sets of data. The figures of instruments and their components are not taken by a professional photographer, but they still clearly show each component and are labeled well.
Both the formatting and flow of adding new information is consistent. When new vocabulary is first presented, it is defined. When these terms are mentioned again, the text links the reader back to the original definition in case more information is needed. In the later chapters when new instruments are discussed, each is evaluated based on its precision, sensitivity, and selectivity as well as cost.
The text is easily divisible and does not contain large portions of text. Subheadings frequently introduce new themes and continue the flow of the chapter. The content is laid out coherently. Content for a quantitative analysis course is covered in the first chapters, and content for instrumental analysis is toward the end. Navigating a PDF is never as convenient as flipping the pages of a hard-copy book. With that said, this textbook could be easier to navigate if the table of contents included links to subsections.
There are very few grammatical errors and formatting of chemical equations and chemical formulas were all very consistent and of textbook quality.
Analytical Chemistry 2.1
Modern analytical chemistry is concerned with the detection, identification, and measurement of the chemical composition of unknown substances using existing instrumental techniques, and the development or application of new techniques and instruments. It is a quantitative science, meaning that the desired result is almost always numeric. Quantitative results are obtained using devices or instruments that allow us to determine the concentration of a chemical in a sample from an observable signal. We also need to calibrate the response as a function of analyte concentration in order to obtain meaningful quantitative data. As a result, there is always an error , a deviation from the true value, inherent in that measurement.
Chemical Analysis : Modern Instrumentation Methods and Techniques
Chemical analysis , chemistry, determination of the physical properties or chemical composition of samples of matter. A large body of systematic procedures intended for these purposes has been continuously evolving in close association with the development of other branches of the physical sciences since their beginnings. Chemical analysis, which relies on the use of measurements , is divided into two categories depending on the manner in which the assays are performed. Classical analysis , also termed wet chemical analysis, consists of those analytical techniques that use no mechanical or electronic instruments other than a balance.
Journal of Analytical Methods in Chemistry publishes research into the methods and instrumentation used in chemical analysis, including spectroscopic, spectrometric and wet chemistry techniques, and their applications in real-world problems. Liensinine, an important alkaloid in lotus seed, exhibits multiple functions such as anti-AIDS, anticancer, antidepressant, and antihypertensive properties.
