THIS book is more than merely a description of the application of a number of physical methods to analytical chemistry. This is due to the fact that the editors have taken a very broad view of what constitutes analytical chemistry. The consequence is that much pure physical chemistry finds its way into the volume. There is, of course, emphasis on experimental technique.
