Well, it seems this sub-forum didn't have a thread on best texts for Analytical Chemistry.  So we'll make this post sticky and post them here.  To start with, the people I used to work with considered a good overall introduction to analytical chemistry to be:  Instrumental Methods of Analysis, by Willard, Merritt and Dean.  http://www.amazon.com/Instrumental-Methods-Analysis-Chemistry-Willard/dp/0534081428  I'm very glad to have my fifth edition as a reference, although, I used to have an older revision, maybe third, and while the instruments were more old fashioned, I did like hearing about older, more manual methods.

That all depends on how reasonable we're all willing to be.  I just want my friends back, except for Cartman, you can keep him.

Quantitative Chemical Analysis by Daniel Harris http://www.amazon.ca/Quantitative-Chemical-Analysis-Daniel-Harris/dp/1429218150

Instrumental methods was the textbook for my MSc course.

Also Statistics and Chemometrics for Analytical Chemistry (Miller & Miller) http://www.amazon.com/Statistics-Chemometrics-Analytical-Chemistry-4th/dp/0130228885/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1363373601&sr=1-3&keywords=statistics+miller+%26+miller

Quantitative Chemical Analysis by Harris does a great job.

Book recommendations on these topics: XRD, SEM/TEM, and ICP-MS/OES
« Reply #23 on: September 01, 2014, 12:39:05 AM »

Hi!

I want to read up on some analytical techniques that I will use in my thesis work. I already have PANalytical's introduction to X-ray Powder Diffraction, but I would like something larger, a book, or several books, perhaps.

I am interested in something that covers both theoretical and applied aspects, even if that means two separate books. Do anyone have any recommendations of such literature? I have an advanced bachelor course in quantum physics, some math, and 110 ECTS in chemistry, so the the theory does not need to be "high-school-ish".

If it matters, I will be analyzing particulate matter from air samples.

The ICP-MS is a high-resolution sector-field instrument. The ICP-OES is one of the Optimas, I believe.

Anyway, I would appreciate any help that would narrow my search.

Kind regards,
Anders

R.F. Egerton, "Physical Principles of Electron Microscopy" is a short book that covers the basics of SEM and TEM. A good place to start.
J.Goldstein et al, "Scanning Electron Microscopy and X-ray Microanalysis" is a much more detailed and thorough treatment of the practice of SEM, instrumentation, sample handling and the interpretation of images. Also reasonably cheap for a hardback science book these days. Unfortunately (for you) it doesn't cover TEM, but if you're going to do a lot of SEM I can strongly recommend it.

I will mostly use SEM. Thank you for the suggestions, I will look into those!

Hi guys, I am a visual learner, and respond best to detailed diagrams rather than reems of text.

I struggle mostly with physical chemistry, and sometimes analytical. I have 3 months spare now before I start a new degree and I want to hit the books hard and learn as much as I can.

What's books would be best suited for me?

Does anyone have any good suggestions for books (or e-books!) that could help me with the maths behind analytical work?

Trying to get my head around LOD/concentration calculations with interchangeable units is difficult, and I'm struggling to find anything decent online to help..

(My manager looked so relieved today, and may have actually jumped for joy, when I finally got to a solution after 30 mins)

Interesting that so many people have high praise for Quantitative Chemical Analysis by Daniel Harris. I used the 8th edition for my analytical chemistry class and didn't think it was all that great. It didn't have that many examples worked out (at least not for the stuff we were covering), and I just found the style of the textbook to be very bland. Then again, part of it was probably just the fact that I wasn't a huge fan of the class or the material.  :P
