Every analytical chemist who needs to know about the determination of metals and metalloids will welcome this new volume, and will want to have access to it.
ASLIB Book Guide
The authors of this book attempted successfully to meet the needs of analytical chemists presenting an up-to-date state-of-art of problems in trace and ultratrace analysis of metals and metalloids... in my opinion this book is a very valuable position in analytical chemistry literature. I am convinced that it will be of great use to analytical chemists interested in inorganic trace analysis in industry, environmental studies, chemical analysis of special purpose materials.
With an objective of this magnitude one obviously asks the question as to whether any of the topics can be covered in sufficient depth for the book to be of value. The answer is yes. Not only is the text very readable and informative with helpful detail neatly summarised in clear tables, but the majority of the many references are to recent primary literature indicating that the authors are well aware of current developments and are not just re-presenting detail from other reviews....Apart from being an excellent resource for teaching, the book will be of real use to a scientist who is starting to become involved with a particular topic, be it a technique, an application area or the measurement of an analyte...Spectrochemical Trace Analysis for Metals and Metalloids is likely to become a major new reference book.

The information in this volume on sample preparation and on selected metal determination is a boon to the industrial, government, or academic chemist with teaching or training responsibility.
IASI Polytechnic Magazine
The volume is recommended as a substantial reference and handbook for all practical spectroanalytical chemists. It should be kept handy in most plasma spectrochemical laboratories, since it is filled with ICP methods.
