2-0 out of 5 stars Equations
The book introduces equations which have variables which are named poorly and lead to confusion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Revew of guide
The book was very helpfull.Covered most of the topics covered in class.Very self explanitory text and very easy to understand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, but wait a minute please.
I gave this book 5 stars because it explains different topics based on electrochemistry, pH, precipitation, potentiometry, etc., and how they relate amongst themselves. The book really gets deep and provides plenty of examples and exercises to master the topics.

That was the good part, now I have to tell you that paying as much time as this book requires is not worth it. I have worked as an Analytical Chemist for three years where I have always been searching which technologies most laboratories and companies use. I also got a M.S. in the field and have taken a deep look at the job market around the world. After all this experiences, I hardly find a place where they would ask more than just taking pH of samples and some titrations that do not require the deep knowledge of this book. It is High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Gas Chromatography (GC), Atomic Absorption (AA) and spectroscopy (especially UV/Vis) the ruling technologies.

For some reason the academic communities have been really careless about the skills chemistry students need in analytical labs. Most analytical chemistry book deal deeply with electrochemistry topics and most schools have students study them rather deep. The chromatographic techniques are not usually given the importance they require. They regard them easy topics and too many books that do mention HPLC and GC cover too much on equilibrium theory and more useless topics. And the same academic communities are rather incongruent because too much electrochemistry is not very useful in the chemistry subject GRE.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not so good for graduate exams
If you are looking for a means to review for a graduate school exam in analytical chemistry, look elsewhere.The material covered in an undergraduate general chemistry textbook is much better for review purposes.For those actually taking the class, I cannot comment on this books' utility.

4-0 out of 5 stars If you're psyched to learn chemistry...
I own many, many Schaum's Outlines, and am satisfied with all of them.However, before you buy this outline of Analytical Chemistry or any of the other Schaum's Outlines, you need to ask yourself what your needs are.If you are looking for a brief review of a subject, you should look elsewhere.If you are taking a course in Analytical Chemistry and need a little help with some areas of it, you should look elsewhere--preferably, ask someone with a thorough grasp of the subject to explain those areas to you.

The Schaum's Outlines are best used as a self-study tool.Let's face it, reviewing an entire subject and solving all the problems to gain a solid grasp on the material is difficult and time-consuming, and I suspect few students already enrolled in a course will have the extra time to rehash what they've already been told by reading through a Schaum's Outline, and few will want to go through so many problems--at least in my courses, the problems we are provided are too much to begin with.

For review purposes, Schaum's may help some students.However, since you need to know what your course will test you on specifically, you would need to go through the outline along with your notes.Therefore, spending more time reviewing your course notes might be a better use of your time.

Schaum's Outlines are essentially cheaply made textbooks, and, as with other texts, the writing varies widely from one book in the series to another.If a cheap self-study of a course is what you seek, or you'd like to preview a course you plan to take, by all means go with Schaum's.If you are a student looking for help with a subject, seek it elsewhere. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars The bad, and the not so good
I am a biochemistry student; Analytical Chemistry by Christian is a required text for the lecture portion of my techniques in chemistry.I wouldn't be that harsh on this book if not for the fact that the lab portion of the class requires Quantitative Chemical Analysis by Harris.When comparing the two texts the Harris book is more detailed, through and clear.Now, the Christian text is okay, it does teach you the necessary procedures of problem solving.I find those procedures somewhat elementary.The practice problems have no depth to them.It's an Okay buy, I would rather spend my money on the Harris book though.

5-0 out of 5 stars Right on the money
I've been teaching Analytical Chemistry for 8 years now and most of that time I used Skoogs text.The problem with Skoogs text is that it spends far too much time on titration calculations and does not give enough emphasis to modern analytical practices. My first exposure to Dr. Christian's writings occurred in my undergraduate Instrumental Analysis course 21 years ago.I'm glad to see he is still writing textbooks.I recently switched my course's textbook to Dr. Christian's Analytical Chemistry 6th ed.It is well organized, easy to read and quite modern in its coverage.Additionally, it has a far superior set of end of chapter problems than most analytical textbooks I've reviewed and the appendix has a set of laboratory exercises that dovetail nicely with the chapter content.I highly recommend this textbook.

4-0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive book
This book is comprehensive and comprehensible. Since I was doing my undergraduate studies I enjoyed Christian's Analytical Chemistry, it's a learning book with both: essential information and enough detail. Now, inthe 5th edition, it has some new techniques and basic references for almostall the analytical methods in chemistry, and continues providing anoverview of the techniques and equipment involved in analytical chemistry.Its explanations are useful and concise, mainly to be used as a text bookfor an analytical chemistry course. ...

Product Description

Analytical Chemistry and Quantitative Analysis presents concepts and procedures in a manner that reflects the practice and applications of these methods in today’s analytical laboratories. These methods are illustrated by using current examples from fields that include forensics, environmental analysis, medicine, biotechnology, food science, pharmaceutical science, materials analysis, and basic research.  The fundamental principles of laboratory techniques for chemical analysis are introduced, along with issues to consider in the appropriate selection and use of these methods—including the proper use and maintenance of balances, laboratory glassware, and notebooks, as well as mathematical tools for the evaluation and comparison of experimental results.

Basic topics in chemical equilibria are reviewed and used to help demonstrate the principles and proper use of classical methods of analysis like gravimetry and titrations.  Common instrumental techniques are also introduced, such as spectroscopy, chromatography and electrochemical methods.  Sideboxes discuss other methods, including mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy, throughout the text.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
The book is the best choice for studying analytical chemistry. It commbines the stuff from Analytical textbooks by Harris and Skoogg presents it in a very understandable manner.

2-0 out of 5 stars Why was this textbook even published?
We already have three excellent-to-very-good undergraduate analytical chemistry texts on the market - Harris (ISBN 1429218150), Skoog (ISBN 0030355230) and Christian (ISBN 0471214728). All 3 have been around forever and are now refined to the point of near perfection.

A recent entrant has already tried to penetrate this market and failed: David Harvey's "Modern Analytical Chemistry" (ISBN 0072375477), which is a book I strongly like. Do yourself a favor & hunt down a used copy or download the revised 2nd edition in PDF from the author's website at Depauw U. Why pay for a textbook when something so good is available for free?

If you look at the table of contents of Hage & Carr (below) and compare it to the above "big 3" you'll see there's hardly any difference. Every book covers the same material in pretty much the same way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use
The book is very easy to read and guides you through the material logically and with examples.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very useful book!
This is an excellent statistics book for chemists. It has good examples of data from chemical assays and provides relevant analysis of the data to illustrate the points. I work in the pharmaceutical industry and I use it all the time, to give myself a good, all-round understanding of statistics for chemistry. This book doesn't go into in-depth statistics, so if you need something more meaty, look elsewhere. Overall, I found this book to have everything I've needed. I recommend it highly.

5-0 out of 5 stars I don't know this edition, but the 2nd Edition is great!
I don't know this edition, but I think the 2nd edition is great!I'm a Ph.D. chemist, but wanted to learn more statistics, and learn it better.I found this book concise, and I thought the authors explained fundamental concepts and did so with admirable clarity.Me and many of my colleagues consider it our best reference on statistics!

2-0 out of 5 stars Basic stats, just more complicated!
The book overall is a highbrow explanation of elementary statistics, applied to a chemist's world.It does not do a very good job of explaining your base statistics, so I would recommend only people that have had some true statistics courses and background use this book.It provides good examples from an analytical chemist's point of view, but beyond that, the book is useless. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars $1,200??
I bought the 1997 edition of this book, with CD, in 2001 for $70.00 -- I cannot recommend it as being worth more than that. I really didn't find it to be very useful for my original intent, which was to have a good reference for instrumental techniques, including those used in pharmaceutical and biological research.The CD included with the book has a simple, almost DOS level, program that installs and aids to some small extent in picking specific methods to do analysis of some sample type you input.My only comment is that, if you need this kind of gimmick to choose your analytical method, you would be better off getting into a job or a class that uses current analytical instrumentation.

Having seen the current offering price and since I still have the book, little used, my quandary is whether I should be offering it for some highly inflated price, or go ahead and give it to the Goodwill as I was about to do.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Good book for Any instrumental Lab
This book is a must for the instrumental chemist.It covers it some detail most general and specialized instrumental techniques employed by chemist.It also gives specific applications of these techniques, manufacturers of instruments and supplies, and estimates on costs. In my lab I often find people first refering to this book when reviewing a new technique or wishing to 'brush up' on a technique they have not used in a while.It is a good first reference and I reccomend it to any analytical chemist.

5-0 out of 5 stars Review from Analytical Consumer
Have you ever tried to explain what analytical chemistry is, to a friend, relative, or stranger feigning interest in what you do? The attempt quickly reveals the depth and complexity of a field so easily named with two simple words. Where do you begin? What do you leave out? Trying to write a textbook on the many facets of analytical chemistry is even more difficult; some attempts run to many volumes. Some texts focus on the physical principles of a technique, others on the applications.Prentice-Hall's new Handbook of Instrumental Techniques for Analytical Chemistry (FrankEvery lab occasionally faces a problem outside the usual routine - questions their normal instruments can't answer. The Handbook helps them figure out what instruments might do the job. The goal of the book is to introduce nonspecialist scientists to the major techniques, outlining how each works, what it does, its limitations, the information produced, plus practical matters such as costs to buy and operate, and the expertise required of an operator. Each chapter has a list of manufacturers and a bibliography for further self-education. A person who goes through a chapter will be ready to ask intelligent questions of experts in the field and understand the buzzwords peculiar to each discipline. The book contains a CD-ROM with software for selecting appropriate methods for a sample and analysis; since it runs on Windows (3.1, 95, or NT), I couldn't test it on my Macintosh. The authors of the chapters are a mix of university researchers, innovators from industry, and a few carefully-selected experts from instrument companies, who avoid the temptation to promote their own products. For example, the STM/AFM chapter was written by Huub Salemink of the IBM labs in Zurich, where the technique was pioneered. Although I don't want to slight any of the excellent authors who contributed chapters, some areas are truly outstanding texts in their own right. Ron Majors' discussion of organic sample preparation is as thorough as readers of his LC*GC columns would expect. Robert Megargle covers LIMS with the knowledge of many years as user and observer. Defining categories for the overlapping techniques of analytical chemistry is always a challenge. Settle wisely avoided the traditional choice of categorization by underlying physical principles and grouped them according to logical applications. The result includes some based on the instrument types (separation methods, for example) and others on broad application areas (polymer analysis). While purists might fret over this organization, in fact, it makes for easy access, without having to shuffle through the whole book to gather information on a specific analysis. In a single volume covering fields that are often evolving rapidly, there are bound to be a few omissions. The ones I noted were: near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, which has become so important recently; microscopy other than SPM, especially the analytical use of electron microscopes (SEM and TEM); better discussions of time-of-flight and ion trap mass spec; ion sources other than ESI for LC-MS; microwave ovens used for digestion and extraction of inorganic samples (Majors covers its use in organic extraction); flow injection (and segmented-flow) analysis; arc-spark emission spectrometers (mentioned in passing). To really pick nits, there was no mention of solid phase microextraction (SPME) or of specialized analyzers such as CHN, TOC, BOD, or systems for Hg, CN, or S analysis. At the same time, it includes a chapter on the truly exotic and rare technique of atomic fluorescence. Any manageable text will overlook some methods and cover some obscure favorites; this criticism is hardly fatal. Any book on an evolving technology is a snapshot in time and will fairly quickly become dated. The newest techniques have already gone beyond the descriptions in their chapters. This text, nevertheless, will be an excellent introduction to analytical instrument techniques for some years, even if the published prices and suppliers' names may age. I hope some of the more enlightened professors of instrumental analysis will use it as a text; their students will emerge as better analytical chemists. It will certainly help me better understand the techniques I survey each month.Excerpted with permission from Analytical Consumer, Jo Rita Jordan, Editor and Publisher ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent - unlike all the other quant. books
This is a very fine book for analytical courses. It's different than the others in that it emphasizes sampling, optimizing methods, analyzing & validating data, handling interferents, stats, experimental design, calibration and QA. In doing so it does not neglect the traditional topics like gravimetry, titrimetry, solvent extraction, equilibrium chemistry and so on.

It covers alot of material and would be sufficient to completely replace a separate instrumental analysis book for upper-level courses if supplemented properly.

It covers everything a beginning analyst should know with clear definitions, explanations and thoughtful examples. It has many end-of-chapter problems, suggested readings and references. Perhaps too many of these were included for a basic text. But on the other hand it does make it useful as a reference and for professors when designing courses.

The main problem with it is that many chapters are too long (e.g. the chapter on Evaluating Analytical Data) and these should been broken up into more manageable bits.

I also don't like how modern analytical textbooks include basic quantitative analysis and instrumental methods all-in-one. For 2 reasons: (1) the books become needlessly heavy and then binding becomes loose, pages fall out and (2) much material is never read since often a separate instrumental analysis book is used for upper-year courses. Quant books shouldn't try to be all things to all people - just focus on the basics, please. (An ideal, basic text is Exploring Chemical Analysis by Daniel C. Harris, ISBN 1429201479)

This best-selling title both in German and English is now enhanced by a new chapter on the important topical subject of measurement uncertainty, plus a CD-ROM with interactive examples in the form of Excel-spreadsheets. These allow readers to gain an even better comprehension of the statistical procedures for quality assurance while also incorporating their own data.

Following an introduction, the text goes on to elucidate the 4-phase model of analytical quality assurance: establishing a new analytical process, preparative quality assurance, routine quality assurance and external analytical quality assurance.

Besides updating the relevant references, the authors took great care to incorporate the latest international standards in the field.

5-0 out of 5 stars Analytical Chemistry: an introduction
This book is definetly a keeper! A masterpiece of clarity. Although it is >10 years old, this introductory book is still by far the best book of its kind. It is one of of the few chemistry books that I have read from cover to cover several times, and each time I still pick up insights into problem solving and the reasoning behind analytical techniques. The classical experiments in chapter 27 are so good that purchase of a seperate laboratory book is un-necessary.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor book
Ok, I bought this book for my first Analytical Chemistry course.Admittedly, analytical chemistry will be difficult to students regardless taking it for the first time, unless, of course, it just "clicks" with you.Unfortunately, it didn't with me, and this book did not help.Its prose is dense and difficult to muddle through, and while their examples are more or less easy to follow, it does not help with the homework at the end of each chapter.In other words, most of the problems for each chapter are EXCEEDINGLY difficult to do since 75% of them aren't explained in that chapter. And in case you're wondering if I'm just a dumb person, at least half of my class also had a similar complaint, from people who are clearly smarter than me.Hopefully, you will also have a better teacher than I, who taught as terribly as the book is written.(Strangely enough, I did manage to pull a C+ in the course.)The course is barely doable with the book and is generally unhelpful.

The book does have one good point I should mention:It's a good reference book, as it has lists of pKa values, acid disassociation constants, solubility product constants, electrode potentials, and other data used in analytical chemistry.This, however, will not give its review any more stars since any publisher could do this.Anyone attempting to use this book to LEARN analytical chemistry though, I suggest you look elsewhere.

1-0 out of 5 stars A Dismal excuse for a book
Not impressed.I am a Chem major in my Senior year and I can say with certainty that this book is worthless.The examples are poor, and the problems at the end of each chapter require knowledge not covered within said chapter.I'm not sure what book is better, i'm already out too much money for this one and not wasting more on another one!

1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth it
I had homework to do, and since my teacher just ASSUMES everyone has had statistics, he breezed through the stat portion in just a lecture.
Well, I hadn't had any stats at all, and needed the solutions manual to try to work out the problems.
The solution manual is the exact same as what is in the back of the book. Just the answers to SOME of the problems. Not all. Doesn't show steps.
I wasted my money.

2-0 out of 5 stars A Very Poor Book
I am a CHEM major and I was consistently surprised at how many typos and flat-out errors the SEVENTH edition of this book had - seven editions and still poor editing! The examples that are provided are for simpler problems and when you go to do homework, you're lost. Also, instead of using less than a penny's-worth of ink and printing the equation that they are using in an example, it will just refer you back to another page in the book where it was introduced. Some problems require several equations, and you're flipping back and forth all-over the book just to see what equations they are using.
If you're stuck with this book, I recommend you somehow obtain the INSTRUCTORS' solutions manual (or at least the students' solutions manual) so you can actually do the homework.
I also bought a used, previous edition of the Harris Quantitative Analysis textbook. You can get it and a solutions manual pretty cheap if you get a previous version and it's a good book that will explain what Skoog tries to explain so poorly. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
The analytical toxicologist may be required to detect, identify, and in many cases measure a wide variety of compounds in samples from almost any part of the body or in related materials such as residues in syringes or in soil. This book gives principles and practical information on the analysis of drugs and poisons in biological specimens, particularly clinical and forensic specimens.

After providing some background information the book covers aspects of sample collection, transport, storage and disposal, and sample preparation. Analytical techniques - colour tests and spectrophotometry, chromatography and electro­phoresis, mass spectrometry, and immunoassay – are covered in depth, and a chapter is devoted to the analysis of trace elements and toxic metals. General aspects of method implementation/validation and laboratory operation are detailed, as is the role of the toxicology laboratory in validating and monitoring the performance of point of care testing (POCT) devices. The book concludes with reviews of xenobiotic absorption, distribution and metabolism, pharmacokinetics, and general aspects of the interpretation of analytical toxicology results.

  • A clearly written, practical, integrated approach to the basics of analytical toxicology.
  • Focuses on analytical, statistical and pharmacokinetic principles rather than detailed applications.
  • Assumes only a basic knowledge of analytical chemistry.
  • An accompanying website provides additional material and links to related sites.

Written by an experienced team of authors,Fundamentals of Analytical Toxicology is an invaluable resource for those starting out in a career in analytical toxicology across a wide range of disciplines including clinical and forensic science, food safety, and pharmaceutical development. 

Praise from the reviews:

“This is an ambitious effort to describe in detail the many and varied aspects of the science of toxicological analysis. The 17 chapters cover every foreseeable aspect, from specimen collection through analytical techniques and quality control to pharmacological principles and interpretation of results. The authors bring together a great deal of experience in the field and have succeeded admirably in achieving their goal: "to give principles and practical information on the analysis of drugs, poisons and other relevant analytes in biological specimens...". The book is very readable and quite up-to-date, and contains many illustrative figures, charts and tables. Both the student and the practicing professional would do well to study this material carefully, as there is something here for every conceivable level of interest.”   Review from Randall Baselt

"This text comes highly recommended for any analytical toxicology trainee." The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists

“Overall, this book provides a comprehensive, thorough, clear, up to date and practical treatment of analytical toxicology at a high standard.  Understanding of the text is enhanced by the use of many illustrations.  Specifications, guidelines, and methods are highlighted in grey background “Boxes”.  The many and up to date literature references in each chapter demonstrate the authors’ thorough work and permit easy access to deeper information.  Therefore this book can be highly recommended as a valuable source of knowledge in analytical toxicology both as an introduction and for the advanced reader.”  GTFCh Bulletin “Toxichem + Krimtech”, May 2008 (translated, original review in German)

This book has a complete material about analytical chemistry and it will be extremely useful in my classes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great
I lecture Analytical Chem at Stages II , III and MSc level at a NZ University.This is the best book in Analytical Chemistry (and particular instrumental methods of analysis) I've come across.Will be replacingSkoog with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Text
I am a chemistry TA and am currently being forced to use this book in an analytical class I am taking.Kellner has succeeded in putting together an utterly useless book in his "Analytical Chemistry." Skoog makes a much better instrumental textbook.In Kellner, Equations arederived and used with no definition of variables, and the same variable(with different, unknown meanings) are used in later equations as well.Inthe text, terms coined by Kellner are used, but never explained.ReadingKellner only confuses the reader.To add insult to injury, there are veryfew example problems.Overall, I would never recommend this book toanyone for anything.Needless tosay, intuitive knowledge is more usefulthan the text. ...
