9780471013433: Selective Detectors: Environmental, Industrial, and Biomedical Applications (Chemical Analysis: A Series of Monographs on Analytical Chemistry and Its Applications)

A timely and authoritative review of the current state of selective detector technology

This book was written for professionals who need to keep abreast of the latest developments and emerging trends in selective detectors and their applications. It comprises contributions from many of the leading innovators and pioneers in the field, including James Lovelock, inventor of the electron capture detector, whose own contribution is certain to be a rich source of ideas and inspiration for all who read it. Offering a balanced presentation of theory and practice, Selective Detectors:
* Reviews the theory and underlying principles of a broad range of devices
* Discusses, in detail, capabilities and current applications, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary applications, including environmental, petrochemical, biomedical, and quality control
* Explores, in depth, the latest advances and emerging technologies
* Arms readers with a wealth of practical "how-to" information on selecting, using, modifying, and building selective detectors for a wide range of applications
Future historians studying the late twentieth century will almost certainly come to view the advent of selective detectors as among the truly formative technological developments of the period. Anyone who doubts this thesis need only consider the impact of selective detection on environmental quality, the sciences, technology, medicine, business and industry, public policy, quality control, and many other fields. Yet, despite the obvious importance of selective detectors, there continues to be a scarcity of books dedicated to helping professionals keep abreast of the latest developments and emerging trends in this in fluential technology.

This timely and authoritative review of the current state of selective detector technology fills that gap. This book focuses on the newest selective detectors for chromatographic analysis. Conceived and shepherded into existence by a major figure in analytical chemistry and environmental analysis, it includes contributions from many of the leading innovators and pioneers in the field. Most prominent among these is Dr. James Lovelock, inventor of the electron capture detector, whose chapter on the history and development of selective detectors will be a rich source of ideas and inspiration for all who read it.

Offering a balanced presentation of theory and practice, Selective Detectors reviews the theory and underlying principles of selective detectors; discusses, in detail, their current capabilities and applications; explores the latest advances and emerging technologies; and arms readers with a wealth of practical "how-to" information on selecting, using, modifying, and building selective detectors for a wide range of applications.

Selective Detectors is an invaluable resource for analytical chemists and technicians working in a variety of disciplines, including environmental science, petrochemical industries, the food and beverage industries, biotechnology, medicine, and more.

From the Publisher:

Provides a state-of-the-art overview of analytical detectors that are selective for particular classes of chemical compounds. Focuses on more recent technologies such as chemiluminescence, GC-atomic emission, fluorescence and flame ionization which are covered in relation to actual applications including industrial emissions monitoring, sulfur detection, nitrogen detection and nucleotide sequencing. Concludes with a fascinating account by James Lovelock of some of his early work in selective measurement devices.
