CHEM 230 Additional Resources

Fall, 2012


Sources of information on chromatography outside of the class notes and handouts


Harris, 2010, Quantitative Chemical Analysis, 8th Edition general background on separations with some simple extraction methods, with good descriptions of chromatography theory, and with basic descriptions of chromatographic equipment.

Skoog et al., 2007, Principles of Instrumental Analysis, 6th Edition fairly Comprehensive chapters on chromatography (including theory) and capillary electrophoresis; little information on simple extraction methods

McNair and Miller, 1998, Basic gas chromatography - book on gas chromatography.

Snyder et al., 1997, Practical HPLC Method Development, 2nd Ed. A good book on HPLC.
