Handbook for the Chemical Analysis of Plastic and Polymer Additives, 2nd Ed.

The Second Edition of this handbook provides the necessary tools for chemists to obtain a more complete listing of additives present in a particular polymeric matrix. The 2015 edition features:

  • Updated material to include the most recent additives available
  • Contains actual analytical data for each chemical along with the description and methods used for obtaining the results
  • Highlights the toxicological and environmental impact of each product
  • Summarizes regulatory and health information in a convenient "one-step" format

With 50 additional compounds, this 2nd edition nearly doubles the number of additives in several categories including processing aids, anti-static compounds, mold release products, and blowing agents. It includes a listing that can be cross-referenced by trade name, chemical name, CAS number, and even key mass unit ions from the GC/MS run. Also includes new case studies related to "real-world" issues.

Analytical Chemistry of PCBs

Second Edition of Dr. Erickson’s Analytical Chemistry of PCBs appears a decade after the first and is completely revised and updated. The changes from the First Edition reflect the significant growth in the area and a growing appreciation of the importance of PCB analysis to our culture. This book is a comprehensive review of the analytical chemistry of PCBs. It is part history, part annotated bibliography, part comparison, and part guidance. Featuring a new chapter on analyst/customer interactions and several new appendices, the Second Edition is an invaluable resource for both chemists with no experience in PCB analysis and seasoned PCB researchers.
