TRAC: Trends in Analytical Chemistry, Volume 9 provides information pertinent to the trends in the field of analytical chemistry. This book discusses a variety of topics related to analytical chemistry, including flow chemography, condensation polymers, sedimentary organic matter, nucleosides, and fuzzy expert systems. Organized into 43 parts encompassing 87 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of particle induced X-ray emission and its analytical applications. This text then discusses direct memory access data acquisition, which is an efficient method of collecting data from analytical instrumentation. Other chapters consider the application of flow injection analysis in industrial research laboratory. This book discusses as well the utilization of the time-of-flight mass spectroscopy method. The final chapter deals with brassinosteroids, a group of steroidal plant growth substances that possess B-ring lactone and two vicinal diols. This book is a valuable resource for analytical chemists, biochemists, molecular biologists, physicists, engineers, scientists, and researcher workers.
