This two-volume reference serves as a guide containing a wealth of knowledge for all isotope chemists operating in a variety of disciplines together with anthropology to ecology; drug detection technique to toxicology; food to meals technological know-how; and the atmospheric sciences to geochemistry.
Complementing the 1st quantity, quantity II contains concerns that aren't strictly limited to the analytical thoughts themselves, yet relate to research of solid isotopes, reminiscent of the perspectives at the improvement of mass spectrometers, isotopic scales, criteria and references, and directives for developing a laboratory.
