As with the first edition of the Encyclopedia of Analytical Science, Second Edition is designed to provide a detailed and comprehensive publication covering all facets of the science and practice of analysis. The new work has been extensively revised in terms of the titles and content of the first edition, and includes comprehensive coverage of techniques used for the determination of specific elements, compounds and groups of compounds, in physical or biological matrices. It addresses applications of chemical analysis in all areas, ranging from such topics as medicine to environmental science, and geology to food science. Important characterisation techniques, such as microscopy and surface analysis are also included.

The complete work consists of around 610 articles, each consisting of about 4000 words, figures and summary tables. These articles are combined to form larger entries providing comprehensive coverage of important topics and assisting the reader in locating material of interest. The entries are arranged in an A to Z format providing a final publication of about two and a half million words in ten volumes. The articles are structured to allow easy access to information on specific analytes, instrumental techniques and sample matrices. There is extensive cross-referencing throughout the Encyclopedia and a detailed index.

Also available online via ScienceDirect – featuring extensive browsing, searching, and internal cross-referencing between articles in the work, plus dynamic linking to journal articles and abstract databases, making navigation flexible and easy.

About the Author:

Paul Worsfold is currently Professor of Analytical Science in the School of Earth, Ocean and Environmental Sciences and Director of the Plymouth Environmental Research Centre at the University of Plymouth. He was an undergraduate at Loughborough University where he also gained industrial experience in Germany and the Netherlands. He obtained an MSc (1978) and a PhD (1980) in Bioanalytical Chemistry with Michael Thompson at the University of Toronto, Canada. A postdoctoral position with Jarda Ruzicka and Elo Hansen at the Technical University of Denmark was followed by lectureships in Sheffield (now Hallam) and Hull (a new blood lectureship working with Alan Townshend) and a chair at Plymouth in 1990. He received his DSc from Loughborough in 1998.

His research activities are at the interface of Analytical Chemistry and Environmental Science and he is a member of the 'Biogeochemistry and Environmental Analytical Chemistry' research group at Plymouth. His core Analytical Chemistry research interests are flow injection techniques, molecular spectroscopy (particularly chemiluminescence), instrument design, on-line sample treatment techniques and field flow fractionation. Environmental interests include oceanic scale spatial mapping of trace metal micronutrients, e.g. iron, nutrient (N and P) cycling in natural waters, physico-chemical speciation of elements and contaminant transport and modelling. He has published over 200 scientific research papers and review articles.

He is currently Editor of the journal Analytica Chimica Acta and Editor of the Encyclopaedia of Analytical Science. He is also on the Editorial Boards of the Journal of Flow Injection Analysis and Environmental Chemistry. His work has been recognised by the award of the SAC Silver Medal in 1990, the H.E. Armstrong lectureship (SCI) in 1992, the C.B. Huggins lectureship (Acadia University) in 1997 and the Theophilus Redwood lectureship (RSC) in 2000. He became President of the Analytical Divis

Alan Townshend holds B.Sc., Ph.D.and D.Sc degrees from the University of Birmingham, where he lectured in analytical chemistry from 1964 to 1980. He moved to the University of Hull in 1980, where he introduced both analytical chemistry and toxicology as degree subjects. He became Professor of Analytical Chemistry in 1984 and later held the G. F. Grant Chair of Chemistry and served as Dean. He became Director of the institute for Chemistry in Industry in c.2000 and retired from the University in 2004. He has published five books and edited numerous others. He has also published more than 300 scientific papers, his main interests initially being flame spectroscopy and, from about 1978 onwards, analytical applications of chemiluminescence and of immobilised reagents (especially enzymes), and flow injection analysis.

Professor Townshend was a senior editor of Analytica Chimica Acta (Elsevier) until 2006 and of the Dictionary of Analytical Reagents (Chapman and Hall, 1993). He has been an Editor of all three editions of the Encyclopedia of Analytical Science. He was President of the Analytical Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) in 1996-98 and has served on several of its committees. He was an active member of the Analytical Chemistry Division of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry for many years. He also was a member of the Council of the Analytical Chemistry Division of the Federation of European Chemical Societies for four years. His interests in forensic science and toxicology led to appointments to bodies governing the competence of forensic scientists and the verification of anti-doping tests in horse racing. He also served on the Chemistry panels of the Higher Education Council’s Research Assessment and Teaching Quality exercises. After retirement, Emeritus Professor Townshend successfully completed a part-time BA course in Archaeology (2006 - 13) at the University of Hull. He is now involved in genealogy with help from the University of the Third Age (U3A) and also organises wine appreciation meetings for the local U3A branch.

Prof. Poole was born and educated in the United Kingdom receiving a B.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of Leeds (1971) followed by graduate studies at the University of Bristol, MSc. in analytical chemistry (1972), and Ph.D. with Prof. E. D. Morgan at the University of Keele (1975) on the analysis of insect molting hormones. Since 1980 he has been at the Department of Chemistry, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan, USA, except for 1995-1996, spent as the Governors’ Lecturer and Professor of Analytical Chemistry at Imperial College of Science, Technology & Medicine, London, in the United Kingdom.

Prof. Poole is a polychromatographer with broad interests in the separation and detection of small molecules in biological, environmental, and food samples; sample preparation technology; and computer-aided data analysis techniques. He is the author of over 325 research papers, an editor of the Journal of Chromatography, and a member of the editorial boards of 5 other analytical chemistry journals. In 1985 he received the Tswett Medal of the International Symposium Advances in Chromatography, in 1991 the Jubilee Medal of the Chromatographic Society, and in 1997 a D.Sc. from the University of Leeds (UK).
