Summary and Info
Divided into three main parts, the book begins with a clear explanation of basic SPE conceptsincluding theory, chemistry, and mechanisms of interaction as well as methods development, troubleshooting, and optimization. The next section presents an in-depth look at SPE applications, with separate chapters devoted to clinical, environmental, and natural product chemistry. Numerous examples drawn from each of these three areas illustrate SPE in action in the real world, successfully bridging the gap between principles and practice.The final section of this book discusses the latest SPE technology, with detailed coverage of the automation process, solid-phase extraction disks, and innovations such as solid-phase microextraction and small-volume solid-phase extraction. Suggested reading and references are included throughout, providing a useful springboard for further research and study.Whether you are new to SPE or are looking to keep abreast of the newest developments in SPE methods and uses, Solid-Phase Extraction gives you instant access to the information you needan essential companion for chemists of all types who use SPE in their work.Complete coverage of SPE concepts and applicationsat your fingertips Solid-Phase Extraction (SPE) equips chemists in any field with an incomparable one-stop source of up-to-date information on SPE.
