Trends in Analytical Chemistry, Volume 5 focuses on the advancements of processes, technologies, automation, and applications of analytical chemistry. The selection first offers information on graphics programming for the IBM PC using FORTRAN, PASCAL, and C, including graphics hardware system software, assembly language routines, and high level interface. The text then elaborates on the place of affinity chromatography in the production and purification of biomolecules from cultured cells and zone electrophoresis in open-tubular capillaries. Discussions focus on column and instrument design, applications, affinity chromatography in protein production from cells, and economic aspects of production and purification of proteins from cell cultures. The manuscript takes a look at polarographic and voltammetric techniques and their application to the determination of vitamins and coenzymes and activation analysis with charged particles. Topics include accelerators, principle of charged particle activation analysis, and applications. The text then examines the development of microbiological and immunological assays for antibiotics and the use of computer system for a small analytical research laboratory. The book is a dependable reference for readers interested in the trends in analytical chemistry.
