~or use with seawater. Ho'.~e,er. manne chemistry in generai, and its anai~tica! branch in particuiar, are rapidi> e;olvin~. According[>. aii chapters of the first edition ha~e been revised and updated. Nla~.~ have been expanded considerabi~, most notabi? those on trace metal analysis and the automated determination of .norganic micronutrients. New chapters have been added for anal)tical procedures which ha~e reached a degree of reliability that ~arrants inclusion. The reader will nov,' find detailed information on the use of capillar.', gas chromatom"aphy tbr the analysis and quantification of chlorinated hydrocarbons, on the use of macroreticular resins for concentrating dissolved organic material from large volumes of seawater, on the adaptation of spectrofluorimetry for measuring oil residues in seawater, and on the merits of HPLC ibr amino acid and carbohydrate determinations. Thus, the book should once again prove a reliable and up-to-date source ofinfomlation. A~ailable from Verlag Chemic GmbH, D-6940 Wcinheim, Federal Rept.blic of Germany. ISBN (Vcrlag Chemie) 3 ,.., _399~ 8. t983. xxviii +419 pp.
