@qu:This book will be valuable for anyone involved in liquid chromatography. It is timely and highlights throughout the techniques that are most successful. This is not so much a book to put on the shelf of the specialist for reference purposes, but instead it is a book which is meant to be read by the general reader to obtain perspective and insights into this general area.
@source:Trends in Analytical Chemistry
@qu:...essential reading for biomedical analysts.
@source:The Analyst
@qu:...highly recommended for pharmaceutical-industry laboratories that carry out pharmacokinetic and drug-metabolism studies.
