This authoritative compendium updates and replaces the first edition,which proved so valuable for all who needed to use the officiallyrecommended analytical nomenclature mandated by IUPAC. Since thefirst edition the demand for new analytical procedures has increasedsteadily and at the same time the diversity of the techniques hasexpanded and the quality and performance characteristics of theprocedures have come to be a focus of interest. New types of instrumentaland automatic techniques have emerged and computerization has takenover. The scope of analytical chemistry has been widened as thequestion to be answered was not only the chemical composition ofthe sample, but also the structure of substances, and changes incomposition and structure in space and time. This new volume willbe an indispensable reference resource for the coming decade.
