Analytical Chemistry 2.0

Written by: David Harvey

Revision of the McGraw-Hill textbook Modern Analytical Chemistry published in 1999. The new version includes practice exercises (with worked solutions), instructions on using Microsoft Excel and computational software, and method development and optimization.

Textbook is available as individual PDF files or a complete textbook in PDF form.

Each chapter concludes with a chapter summary, key terms, problems and solutions to the practice exercises.
