Calculations for Chemical and Biological Analysis, 2nd Edition
Bassey J.S. Efiok, Etim Effiong Eduok
Completely revised, this 2nd Edition contains many more examples
and three new chapters. Advanced and practical enough for even experienced
scientists in the chemical and biomedical sciences, yet simple enough
for a high school senior, this publication will help users understand
and apply basic biochemical calculations, using simple and consistent
techniques. Whether you need a review of how to apply general principles
to specific quantitative problems or simply a less complex technique,
this book will fill the need.
Each chapter includes concise descriptions and definitions for the
basic principles; derivation of basic equations or concepts used
for calculations; relevant techniques and their applications; and
Reagent Quantitation: Calculating Amounts, and Concentrations; Preparation
Guidelines. New!Calculations Involving Chemical Reaction
and Stoichiometry. New!Properties of Gases and Colligative
Properties of Solutions. Buffers: Principles, Calculations, and
Preparation. Spectrophotometry: Basic Principles and Quantitative
Applications. Enzyme Assays and Activity. Radioactivity and Related
Calculations. New!Analytical Calculations Using Spreadsheets
and Reporting Results into Laboratory Information Management Systems.
Quick reference guides to abbreviations, SI units, and selected
equations. Miscellaneous examples. Appendixes. References.
