Efficient use of analytical instruments requires an understanding of the fundamental principles and techniques upon which modern measuring devices are based. Only then one can make intelligent choices among the many possible ways of solving an analytical problem; and appreciate the pitfalls that accompany any physical measurement. The present publication allows the reader to find information about the analytical instrumental techniques that are commonly used to provide information on chemical composition and structure.
The publication is in two volumes, each having two sections. First volume includes sections on Introduction and Spectroscopy, while the other include Chromatography and Miscellaneous Methods. The publication has been written keeping in view the latest syllabi of several Indian universities. THE subject matter, both as regards the arrangement of chapters as well as the contents of each chapter has been so graded, proceeding from simple to more difficult topics, that a student may follow the course with great ease and interest. The method of presentation is very clear and lucid. It is our hope that this edition will be of great value to all our students.
