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.
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.
