Phosphorimetry presents the various aspects of the spectro-analytical method known as phosphorimetry. The monograph provides an introduction to the theoretical and experimental foundations of the phosphorescence of organic compounds; techniques and instrumentation used in phosphorimetry; and applications to different fields of analysis. Organic and inorganic chemists, biochemists, pharmacologists, and analysts whose work involves spectroscopic relationships and techniques will find the book very interesting.
