Element speciation determines the different forms a chemical element can take within a given compound, enabling chemists to predict possible ramifications for the environment and human health. This comprehensive book focuses on the analytical aspects and instrumentation of speciation, while covering the gamut of metal speciation forms with adverse effects on biological materials and the environment at large.<br> <br> The book consists of contributions by a truly international group of leading authorities on element speciation in bioinorganic chemistry. The editor--a contributor here himself--traces the developments in the field, discussing the advances made over the past decade in various methodologies and the significance of the increased capacity to detect extremely small concentrations of trace elements in various media.<br> <br> Several chapters are dedicated to the various methods and applications of speciation, exploring specific analytical methods, such as direct, chromatographic and nonchromatographic methods, as well as nuclear-based and voltammetric methods. Others cover speciation in various natural water and marine environments and its manifestation in biological materials, human serum, or foodstuff. In addition, the book examines speciation theory and legal aspects as well as questions of quality and sources of errors--issues that underscore the perennial need to develop new methods for obtaining still more accurate data.<br> <br> Extremely broad in scope and rich in detail, this volume provides the key to improving the state of the art in the field, and is sure to stimulate further research. It stands as a one-of-a-kind reference for analytical and inorganic chemists, as well as biochemists, in a wide range of disciplines, including toxicology, environmental science, nutrition research, clinical chemistry, and pharmacology.<br> <br> A complete reference for the analytical and instrumental aspects of speciation<br> <br> This unique volume provides both a comprehensive reference and a practical guide to the complete range of issues arising from element speciation. It concentrates on analytical methods and instrumentation in bioinorganic chemistry--especially as applied to water-related projects--while addressing the larger environmental and human-health concerns of our times.<br> <br> Complete with over 100 illustrations, this collaborative effort by an international group of experts describes <br> * Methods for the detection and analysis of species elements, including direct methods, atomic spectrometry, nuclear activation analysis and radio tracer, high-performance chromatography, or voltammetric procedures <br> * Specific effects of various species elements, including heavy metals, arsenic, and many other trace elements <br> * Biological materials showing concentrations of trace elements, including human serum, milk, and marine organisms <br> * Various environments affected by element speciation, such as natural waters, sea waters, estuarine, and coastal environments <br> * How to avoid common pitfalls and obtain sound and accurate data<br> <br> <br> For anyone involved in environmental and earth sciences, as well as the related areas of public health, pharmacology, toxicology, nutritional research, or environmental regulations, this important work offers the most systematic survey of element speciation to date. It also provides historical perspective, a preview of expected developments, and a multitude of new ideas for further research.<br> <br> The author of approximately 240 published papers and three previous books, Dr. Caroli is an active member of numerous national and international committees and organizations concerned with chemicals in the environment. He also sits on the editorial or advisory boards of several scientific journals, including the Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectroscopy, Environmental Science and Pollution Research International, and Microchemical Journal.


Poucher's Perfumes, Cosmetics And Soaps

Poucher's Perfumes Cosmetics and Soaps has been in print since 1923 and is the classic reference work in the field of cosmetics. Now in a fully updated 10th edition, this new volume provides a firm basic knowledge in the science of cosmetics (including toiletries) as well as incorporating the latest trends in scientific applications and legislation which have occurred since the 9th edition.
This edition will not only be an excellent reference book for students entering the industry but also for those in specialized research companies, universities and other associated institutions who will be able to gain an overall picture of the modern cosmetic science and industry.
The book has been logically ordered into four distinct parts. The historical overview of Part 1 contains an essay demonstrating William Arthur Poucher's influence on the 20th Century cosmetics industry as well as a chapter detailing the long history of cosmetics.
Part 2 is a comprehensive listing of the properties and uses of common cosmetic types, ranging from Antiperspirants through to Sunscreen preparations. There are an increased number of raw materials in use today and their chemical, physical and safety benefits are carefully discussed along with formulation examples. The many additions since the last edition demonstrate the dramatic recent expansion in the industry and how changes in legal regulations affecting the development, production and marketing of old, established and new products are operative almost worldwide. Information on specialist products for babies and others is included within individual chapters.
The chapters in Part 3 support and outline the current guidelines regarding the assessment and control of safety and stability. This information is presented chemically, physically and microbiologically.
Part 3 chapters also detail requirements for the consumer acceptability of both existing and new products. Those legal regulations now in force in the EU, the USA and Japan are carefully described in a separate chapter and the remaining chapters have been extensively updated to explain the technical and practical operations needed to comply with regulations when marketing. This information will be invaluable to European Union and North American companies when preparing legally required product information dossiers.
The final chapters in Part 4 contain useful information on the psychology of perfumery as well as detailing methods for the conduct of assessment trials of new products.
As ingredient labelling is now an almost universal legal requirement the International Nomenclature of Cosmetics Ingredients (INCI) for raw materials has been used wherever practicable.

The advertised volume is the 10th edition of what was previously known as volume 3 of Poucher's Cosmetics and Soaps. Due to changes in the industry there are no plans to bring out new editions of volume 1 and 2.
