Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) is a well-established elemental
analysis technology. It remains one of the most popular and cost-effective
analysis tools used by chemists, physicists, and materials scientists worldwide.
This second edition offers a concise introduction to AAS concepts, essential
methodologies, and important applications. It has been comprehensively
updated for the latest advances in AAS techniques and instruments.
• Overviews of all basic atomic absorption concepts, including atomic
line spectra theory, common sampling techniques, radiation sources,
spectrometers, and detectors;
• Coverage of hydride generation, cold vapor generation and
electrothermal generation, as well as flow injection analysis (FIA) to
enhance AAS analytical performance;
• New sections on troubleshooting and quality control guidelines,
chemometrics, and emerging fields of applications, including analysis
of nanoparticles; and
• Selected examples of standards for chemical analysis.
