The following list gives some details on books and special issues related to elemental speciation (analysis) published since 2011. The list is neither exhaustive nor do we guarantee that all books are still available.
Edited by: Michael Sperling and Uwe Karst
These 16 reviews by prominent groups from the field of speciation analysis provide an overview of recent developments and provide an outlook for future directions. They clearly document that speciation analysis has reached the status of a versatile tool to tackle real analytical questions raised in interdisciplinary research with scientists from environmental, biological, medical, and many other sciences.
Inorganic Trace Analytics: Trace Element Analysis and Speciation
Henryk Matusiewicz, Ewa Bulska
Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG, 18 Dec 2017 - Science - 459 pages
Highly accurate chemical speciation is of great importance in environmental, clinical, and food sciences, as well as in archaeometry. Trace analysis via atomic spectrometry, mass spectroscopy, gas chromatography, electron microprobing, or X-ray absorption spectroscopy provides detailed information on surface and sub-surface domain of samples. The book comprehensively presents modern techniques, timely application, and data modeling.
Themed JAAS issue dedicated to speciation analysis
Guest editors: Gunda Koellensperger and Heidi Goenaga-Infante
J. Anal. At. Spectrom., 31/9, 2016
This special issue comprises two critical reviews, a perspective, twelve original papers, a technical note and a short communication. Together, these highlight the complexity and role of speciation measurements in providing information relevant to health and environmental safety and compound-specific metabolism. The articles cover a range of elemental species of different types (e.g. norganic Cr species, fine particulate carbon, As species, metalloproteins, aminoacids and peptides and metallodrugs) and samples of different complexity (e.g. , tobacco products, fish oil, soils, human blood serum and cells). The issue includes recent work on the production of protein spikes (e.g. , for selenoprotein P and haemoglobin) for accurate protein isotope dilution quantification via the elemental tag.
