Chemical Identification and its Quality Assuranceshows how to apply the principles of quality assurance for qualitative chemical analysis. The principles of identification and metrological basics are presented, in addition to the reliability and errors involved with chemical identification.
Principles of Identification.- Techniques and Methods of Identification.- Probability. Statistics, and Related Methods.- Reliability and Errors of Identification.- Target Identification in Methods.- Prior Data for Non-Target Identification.- Non-Target Identification. Chromatography and Spectrometry.- Chemical Qualitative Analysis II.- Good Identification Practice.
This is the first book to show how to apply the principles of quality assurance to the identification of analytes (qualitative chemical analysis). After presenting the principles of identification and metrological basics, the author focuses on the reliability and the errors of chemical identification. This is then applied to practical examples such as EPA methods, EU, FDA, or WADA regulations. Two whole chapters are devoted to the analysis of unknowns and identification of samples such as foodstuffs or oil pollutions.Essential reading for researchers and professionals dealing with the identification of chemical compounds and the reliability of chemical analysis.
