Although there is widespread information on sampling and sample preparation, it is not collected together in a comprehensive and accessible way. Approximately 30,000 new journal articles are published in this area each year, spread over a wide range of health science and physical science disciplines. Navigating this literature is time-consuming and as methods diverge, it s difficult to make the right choices. Users of Comprehensive Sample and Sample Preparation can feel confident that the information collected has been carefully reviewed and vetted, which means they can save time and make sound decisions on what can be used in their own work. In its four volumes, Comprehensive Sampling and Sample Preparation contains a complete treatment of the theory and methodology of sampling in all physical phases and the theory of sample preparation for all major extraction techniques. Fundamentals of sampling and sample preparation are reinforced through broad and detailed sections dealing with Biological and Medical, Environmental and Forensic, and Food and Beverage applications. The contributions are organized to reflect the way in which analytical chemists approach a problem. It is intended for a broad audience of analytical chemists, both educators and practitioners of the art and can assist in the preparation of courses as well in the selection of sampling and sample preparation techniques to address the challenges at hand.
