New book provides invaluable guidance for beginners and experienced analytical chemists of ICP-MS and other AS techniques

Oct 23 2023

A new book entitled "Practical Guide to ICP-MS and Other AS Techniques: A Tutorial for Beginners", by Robert Thomas has just been published by CRC Press/Routledge/Taylor & Francis. More information about the book including what's new compared to the 3rd edition can be found at the following link.

Robert Thomas is globally renowned as one of the pioneering practitioners of ICP-MS, and his latest book presents ICP-MS in a refreshingly novel way, providing trace element analysis users an invaluable insight into why the technique was originally developed and the manner in which the application landscape has defined its use today, 4 decades after it was first commercialised in 1983.

This latest edition includes updated chapters on the fundamental principles and applications of ICP-MS, as well as chapters on complimentary AS techniques such as AA, AF, ICP-OES, MIP-AES, XRF, XRD, LIBS, LALI-TOFMS. Other important topics include ways to minimise errors and contamination with plasma spectrochemical techniques, a comparison of collision and reaction cells including triple/multi-quad systems, the latest sample digestion procedures and alternative sample introduction accessories.

The book provides extremely helpful tips and advice not only for novices but also for experienced analytical scientists wanting to learn more about the latest ICP-MS developments, and where the technique might be heading in the future. Moreover, it passes on much needed guidance on how best to evaluate commercial AS instrumentation and choosing the optimal technique, based on your laboratory’s own application demands.
