A Manual for the Chemical Analysis of Metals
MNL 25 is a practical laboratory reference that summarizes useful solutions to a wide range of common analytical problems. In its extensive focus on hybrid chemical/instrumental approaches, the manual represents a new approach, containing information otherwise only available by consulting a long list of scattered references.
The organization of MNL 25 follows the analytical process:
Materials covers the physical essentials required to assemble and maintain a laboratory for the chemical analysis of metals.
Samples covers all aspects of the laboratory sample which are largely independent of the analysis.
Separations covers all chemical manipulations which lead to complete or partial isolation of the element of interest.
Measurement covers the quantifying technique which yields the final result .
Quality covers all aspects of quality assurance as they relate to metals analysis laboratories.
The Appendixes include common methods of separation and determination
A concise reference source for laboratory technicians, chemists, and lab managers who are faced with detection limit difficulties,spectroscopic line interferences, precision problems at high concentrations, or with an alloy that takes too long to dissolve. Emphasis on steels, nickel and cobalt based alloys; also copper, aluminum, titanium, lead, and precious metals.
