Overview

About the Product

Known for its readability and systematic, rigorous approach, this fully updated Ninth Edition of FUNDAMENTALS OF ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY offers extensive coverage of the principles and practices of analytic chemistry and consistently shows students its applied nature. The book's award-winning authors begin each chapter with a story and photo of how analytic chemistry is applied in industry, medicine, and all the sciences. To further reinforce student learning, a wealth of dynamic photographs by renowned chemistry photographer Charlie Winters appear as chapter-openers and throughout the text. Incorporating Excel spreadsheets as a problem-solving tool, the Ninth Edition is enhanced by a chapter on Using Spreadsheets in Analytical Chemistry, updated spreadsheet summaries and problems, an "Excel Shortcut Keystrokes for the PC" insert card, and a supplement by the text authors, EXCEL® APPLICATIONS FOR ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, which integrates this important aspect of the study of analytical chemistry into the book's already rich pedagogy. New to this edition is OWL, an online homework and assessment tool that includes the Cengage YouBook, a fully customizable and interactive eBook, which enhances conceptual understanding through hands-on integrated multimedia interactivity. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Features

  • Spreadsheet exercises and problems are integrated into the examples and end-of-chapter material in appropriate chapters to enhance student learning.

  • The accompanying spreadsheet supplement, EXCEL® APPLICATIONS FOR ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, 2e, helps students learn spreadsheets in the context of analytical applications.

  • Thought-provoking and research-oriented "Challenge" problems at the end of each chapter based on data from the literature, current topics of interest, and information accessible on the Internet engage students with today's hot topics.

  • The art program features Microsoft® Excel® screenshots, techniques, procedures, and applications with descriptive captions that visually reinforce student understanding.

  • Exclusive photographs taken by renowned chemistry photographer Charlie Winters make it easier for students to understand key principles and processes. Each chapter begins with an application-type photograph and an accompanying relevant and interesting story.

  • Feature boxes throughout the text cover a wide range of topics, including descriptions of Breath Alcohol Analyzers, Lap-on-a-Chip Technology, Modified Electrodes, Enzymatic Determination of Urea, GC/MS, C/MS, LC/MS/MS, and Capillary Electrophoresis in DNA Sequencing.

  • Molecular models, used liberally in most chapters, stimulate interest in the beauty of molecular structures and reinforce structural concepts and descriptive chemistry presented in general chemistry and upper-level courses.

  • A wide spectrum of applications, including developments in biology, medicine, and environmental science, illustrates the exciting nature of the field and enhances the relevancy of the material.

Reviews

"The authors' do a good job of making this text both readable and engaging. I would like to think a student could sit down with a piece of paper, a calculator and pencil and work through most of these chapters in 1-2 hours with good comprehension. I enjoy the level of activity this book uses in terms of engaging you with interesting problems or real world examples."
— Lane Baker, Indiana University
