The aim of this rare volume is to provide up-to-the-minute coverage of the many applications of ion exchange in analytical chemistry. This work places major emphasis on modern high-resolution chromatography, and also includes the analysis of proteins and biological macromolecules. The easy-to-read text gives a general account of ion exchangers, their properties and how they are made, as well as a brief account of the physical chemistry of classical microporous ion-exchanging polymers. Organized by methods and techniques, this one-of-a-kind book describes each technique using illustrations by representative applications. This interesting review also compares ion-exchange methods with other methods of accomplishing the same analyses. It addresses many new areas in this field, including such exciting topics as pulsed amperometric detection of carbohydrates, amino acids, and peptides; chromatography of carbohydrates by anion exchange; and methods of polymer synthesis. Everyone who has an interest in analytical chemistry, chromatography, reactive polymers, and chromatographic science will want to add this reference to their collection of up-to-date resources.
