Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry – 9th Edition

About the Author

Douglas A. Skoog was a professor of chemistry at Stanford University and the lead author of several best-selling texts during his career. He earned a B.S. in chemistry from Oregon State University and his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from the University of Illinois. Dr. Skoog was the 1999 recipient of the American Chemical Society award in analytical chemistry, sponsored by the Fisher Scientific Company. That same year, he was named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. In 1993, he received the ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry Award for Excellence in Teaching.

The textbook ninth designed edition of primarily Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry for a one- or two-semester courseisfor anchemistry introductory majors. Since the publication of the eighth edition, the scope of analytical chemistry has continued to evolve, and thus, we have included in this edition many applications to biology, medicine, materials science, ecology, forensic science, and other related fields. As in the previous edition, we have incorporated many spreadsheet applications, examples, and exercises. We have revised some older treatments to incorporate contemporary instrumentation and techniques. In response to the comments of many readers and reviewers, we have added a chapter on mass spectrometry to provide detailed instruction on this vital topic as early as possible in the chemistry curriculum. Our companion book, Applications of Microsoft® Excel in Analytical Chemistry, 2nd ed., provides students with a tutorial guide for using spreadsheets in analytical chemistry and introduces many additional spreadsheet operations.
We recognize that courses in analytical chemistry vary from institution to institution and depend on the available facilities and instrumentation, the time allocated to analytical chemistry in the chemistry curriculum, and the unique instructional philosophies of teachers. We have, therefore, designed the ninth edition of
Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry so that instructors can tailor the text to meet their needs and students can learn the concepts of analytical chemistry on several levels: in descriptions, in pictorials, in illustrations, in interesting and relevant features, and in using online learning. Since the production of the eighth edition of this text, the duties and responsibilities for planning and writing a new edition have fallen to two of us (FJH and SRC). While making the many changes and improvements cited above and in the remainder of the preface, we have maintained the basic philosophy and organization of the eight previous editions and endeavored to preserve the same high standards that characterized those texts.
