Books on Speciation Analysis (published 1995 - 2000)



 
Elemental Speciation
edited by Joseph A. Caruso, Karen L. Sutton and Kathryn L. Ackley
Elsevier, 2000, 612 pages (ISBN  0444500472 )
 
This book provides a comprehensive discussion of the major aspects involved in elemental speciation. Sample preparation, separation techniques, instrumentation and quality assurance are all discussed. In addition, individual chapters are devoted to speciation of environmental samples and speciation of biological, clinical, and nutritional samples. Individual chapters are written by leaders in the field, and the book has been organized so that the reader may learn how to collect a sample and prepare it. Ways to separate and detect analytes of interest, and steps to take to ensure the validity of the measurements are also discussed.
 
 
Actinide Speciation in High Ionic Strength Media
Experimental and Modeling Approaches to Predicting Actinide Speciation and Migration in the Subsurface
edited by Donald T. Reed, Sue B. Clark and Rao Linfeng 
Kluwer, 1999, 278 pages (ISBN: 0-306-46185-4)
 
This proceedings, based on an American Chemical Society symposium entitled `Experimental and Modeling Studies of Actinide Speciation in Non-Ideal Systems', deals with the management and disposal of radioactive waste. More specifically, it concerns modeling and experimental approaches for actinide chemistry in high ionic strength media, including general aspects of actinide chemistry in high-level nuclear waste and environmental systems, and the special problems of actinide behavior in concentrated electrolytes and/or alkaline conditions.
 

 
Method Performance Studies for Speciation Analysis
Philippe Quevauviller
Royal Society of Chemistry, 1998, xxii+272
(ISBN 0 85404 467 1)

Considering the high number of analyses performed by a wide range of EC laboratories, the SM&T programme (formerly BCR) of the European Commission has launched collaborative projects to improve the state-of-the-art of speciation analysis in Europe. Method Performance Studies for Speciation Analysis presents an overview of these recent studies. As well as discussion of the techniques used, their performance as applied to real-case analyses and possible sources of error, the preparation of Certified Reference Materials for the validation of methods used is also described.
 
 
Element Speciation in Bioinorganic Chemistry
edited by Sergio Caroli
John Wiley & Sons, 1996, 474 pages
(ISBN: 0-471-57641-7)

The book consists of contributions by a truly international group of leading authorities on element speciation in bioinorganic chemistry discussing the various methods and applications of speciation, exploring specific analytical methods, such as direct, chromatographic and non-chromatographic methods, as well as nuclear-based and voltammetric methods. Others cover speciation in various natural water and marine environments and its manifestation in biological materials, human serum, or foodstuff. In addition, the book examines speciation theory and legal aspects as well as questions of quality and sources of errors. 
 
 
Metal Contaminated Aquatic Sediments
edited by Herbert E. Allen
CRC Press, 1996, 292 pages (ISBN: 1575040107)
 
This book comprises ten papers from the Workshop on Metal Speciation and Contamination of Aquatic Sediments held on Jekyll Island, Georgia in June 1993. Among the topics are a global perspective on metals and sediments in fresh water, modeling transport and reaction in metal cycling, determining the redox status, adsorption and desorption rates, the effects of bioturbation on particle transport, and the Environmental Protection Agency's management strategy
 
 
 
Metal Speciation and Bioavailability in Aquatic Systems,
edited by André Tessier and David R. Turner
John Wiley & Sons, 1995, 696 pages (ISBN: 0-471-95830-1)
 
Metal Speciation and Bioavailability in Aquatic Systems is the first comprehensive review to deal with fundamental concepts and models, speciation measurements and field applications in metal speciation and bioavailability in aquatic environments. This volume provides a thorough review of current developments concerning the interactions between trace metals and aquatic organisms. Contributions from leading scientists from many disciplines are discussing both analytical and physical methods applied to this growing field of environmental analysis. It also contains an introduction to the use of laboratory bioassays as predictive tools for understanding trace metal organism interactions and an examination of the use and limitations of bioassays in management decisions.
 
 
Quality assurance for environmental analysis
edited by Ph. Quevauviller, E.A. Maier and B. Griepink
Elsevier, 1995, 670 pages (ISBN 0-444-89955-3)
 
The techniques used in different analytical fields (inorganic, speciation and organic analysis) are critically reviewed (i.e. discussion of advantages and limitations) and existing tools for evaluating their performance are described (e.g. interlaboratory studies, use of certified reference materials). Particular reference is made to the activities of the Measurements and Testing Programme (BCR) of the European Commission towards the improvement of quality control of environmental analysis.
