paratus are not assessed for their applications in trace
Chapter 6 deals with the theory of chromatography,
which the reader will presumably study in other works
written by competent authors and giving all the important
relationships, such as the dependence of band broadening
on the linear velocity, so that wrong conclusions, which
can have particularly serious consequences in trace analysis, can be avoided.
In Chapter 7 the author has taken great pains to collect
the possible chemical reactions and especially those that
are carried out before the separation to improve the sensitivity of detection; no fewer than 335 references are mentioned in this chapter. It would have been desirable to include a critical account of the problems associated with
this method (i. e. pre-column derivatization) in the determination of traces in complex matrixes.
Chapter 8 deals with the methods of sample preparation
and contains 67 references. Chapter 9 discusses in general
terms the very important subject of how to choose the right
chromatographic system. However, in the case of phase
systems, we only find here a brief account of chromatography on silica gel and on materials used in reversed-phase
chromatography. No mention is made of ways to utilize
specific selectivities, e. 9. by column switching.
Chapter 10 gives a selection of clinical and biological
applications as well as of ones from the fields of environmental protection and food analysis, and these examples
give a good idea of the use of HPLC in trace analysis.
The overall impression is that this book is really an introduction to HPLC. There is a large number of useful references, but one misses an evaluation of the methods and
apparatus for specific applications.

Analytiker-Taschenbuch. Vol. 2. Edited by R. Bock, W. Fresenius. H . Giinzler, W. Huber, and G. Tolg. SpringerVerlag, Berlin 1981. viii, 351 pp., bound, DM:78.00.
It is a pleasure to find that, as expected, the contents of
this second volume match those of the first volume’’] published in this “Taschenbuch” series in 1980. The material
is again divided into four parts, namely Theory, Methods,
Applications, and Miscellaneous data, and within this
framework 16 authors working at universities and in industry offer a wealth of information to the analytical chemist.
J. F. Cordes (BASF Ludwigshafen and the University of
Mannheim) gives a comprehensive survey of practical
quantities and units and the SI system. The author covers
the history of legislation in this field and the work of the
ISO, IUPAC, and DIN committees that has led to the current method of dimensioning in analytical chemistry. This
will help analytical chemists in the official and commercial
H . Bartels (Ciba-Geigy, Basel) deals with the difficult
topic of automation of chemical analysis and gives an account of instrumentation in (automated) analysis, together
with useful fundamentals that can greatly help in rationalizing laboratory work. It would perhaps have been helpful
to distinguish more clearly between mechanization, instrumentation, and automation.

H . Specker (University of Bochum) reflects his wide experience in an account of the extraction of metal halides
from aqueous media, a powerful method for separating cations.
The first contribution in the section on analytical methods, by W . Briimmer (E. Merck, Darmstadt), deals with a$
jinity chromatography. This is a special form of adsorption
chromatography that is particularly useful for biological
substances. This excellent chapter is also full of useful information for analytical chemists who do not work in the
field of biochemistry.
C. Wydler (University of Basel) demonstrates the power
of purely physical methods in his contribution on electron
spin resonance of organic radicals in solution. This chapter
constitutes a very useful aid for analysis and the interpretation of ESR spectra, especially by including a list of coupling constants in tabular form.
H . Englhardt and G . M . Ahr (University of Saarbriicken)
call their contribution HPLC-rapid liquid chromatography. The treatment of the broad field of high-pressure Iiquid chromatography is certainly very good, but more information about the separation systems used in the next
chapter, possibly in tabular form, would be appreciated.
G. Schwedt discusses gas-chromatographic separation
and determination methods in inorganic trace analysis and
gives the principles of derivatization, together with tables
of the most important information about the volatile compounds to be prepared, the detectors to be used, the sensitivity limits, and practical applications.
The next chaper is by R . Klockenkamper (Institute of
Spectrochemistry and Applied Spectroscopy, Dortmund),
who also wrote X-ray spectral analysis in combination with
scanning electron microscopy in Part 1. The new contribution, on wavelength dispersion spectrometry, gives useful
numerical values, performance figures, and a comparison
between wavelength-dispersion and energy-dispersion
Two chapters deal with the electrochemical aspects of
analytical chemistry: New titrations with electrochemical
end-point indication by E. Schumacher and F. Umland
(University of Munster) and Differential pulse polarography, pulse voltammetry, and pulse inverse voltammetry by H.
W. Niirnberg (Jiilich Nuclear Research Center). Both authors are highly competent and give an excellent account
of the present-day knowledge of ion-selective electrodes.
The part devoted to applications begins with an account
of the chemical detection of organic functional groups by W.
Huber (BASF Ludwigshafen). This chapter represents a
welcome revival of chemical processes and includes very
useful tables.
Methods for the determination of elements in natural waters by G. Schwedt (University of Gottingen) is a short but
good survey of the analytical schemes and the methods of
determination involved. Indicators and their characteristics
by V. Schmidt and W. D . Mayer (Merck, Darmstadt) is a
longer account and one that is fundamental to classical
analysis. It gives the IUPAC names and the properties of
the indicators for aqueous and non-aqueous systems, with
a number of tables. C . E . von der Smissen (Dragerwerk,
Liibeck) deals with filter-type respirators, a highly topical
subject. This is an outstanding account of the present-day
situation in the domain of work safety and environmental
The last part of the book begins with the relative atomic
weights of the elements and continues with threshold limit
values at working premises (with some important tabulated
material) and intoxication-information and treatment cen67
ters with a 24-hour service (in the Federal Republic of Germany), together with addresses of organizations in the field
of analytical chemistry in the German-speaking countries.
All in all, this book can be highly recommended for all
chemists and for responsible authorities in industry and in
