Chemical Instrumentation by Richard P. Wayne

Book Description

Instrumentation, often of a highly sophisticated kind, lies behind many of the most interesting aspects of contemporary chemistry. Some techniques - such as NMR - owe their existance to electronic instrumentation; others have been made simpler, more reliable, and more precise. Yet undergraduates reading chemistry often have only the most rudimentary understanding to be performed. This book aims to introduce chemists to some of the building blocks and devices that make up the most important instruments used in industry and research. It is not a book about electronics or about detailed circuit design, though the first chapter reviews the principles. Simple measuring devices are discussed before the introduction of the constituent elements of more complex devices, and emphasis is given to the enhancement of signal-to-noise ratios, which often lies at the heart of some of the most demanding measurements in the chemical sciences. This clearly written text will provide a basic understanding of how instrumentation works and thus help chemists use what is available both correctly and effectively.

Chemistry of Atmospheres by Richard P. Wayne Chemistry of Atmospheres, Paperback (March 2000)

Explains the chemistry that occurs in the atmospheres of Earth, the planets, and some satellites. This work explores the chemistry in the Earth's troposphere and stratosphere, as are the phenomenon of airglow in the mesosphere and the properties of the ionosphere. It also includes data obtained from space missions.
