New Advances in Analytical Chemistry,
Vol. III. Edited by Atta-ur-
Rahman. Harwood Academic Publishers,
Amsterdam 2000. xxi 1245
pp., softcover $ 240.00-ISBN 90-
Anyone who expects from its title that New Advances in Analytical Chemistry, edited by Atta-ur-Rahman of the University of Karachi, Pakistan, should be a new textbook on analytical chemistry will soon be disappointed on taking a closer look into the contents. Instead, it is an extensive monograph consisting of two independent parts. The first part consists of 16 articles on current topics in NMR and ESR spectroscopy, the second part of 11 chapters on modern mass spectrometry as well as two additional chapters on selected aspects of NQR spectroscopy and capillary electrophoresis.
All the chapters deal with separate topics, and there is the strong impression of a collection of review articles with limited coherence. In general, this type of book is very useful for the scientist who would like to gain information on a particular analytical technique at an advanced level. From the viewpoint of clarity, however, it is difficult to understand why the chapters on NQR spectroscopy and capillary electrophoresis were included here. It would have been much more useful to incorporate these chapters into similar monographs on other general topics which might be planned for the future.
The editor has taken on the challenge of imposing a degree of consistency on a monograph of more than 1200 pages with almost 30 groups of authors. Fortunately, a brief subject index for each of the two parts has been provided by the editor. This allows one to search for keywords within each part of the book. On the other hand, the layout of the text is not consistent throughout the chapters, although most of the cited references have a uniform format.
One significant problem with this book is its lack of up-to-dateness: For example, in the rapidly evolving field of proteomics, which is covered in the chapter (tm)Advances in Protein Analysis and Sequencing by Mass Spectrometry, it is hardly acceptable that not a single reference in this chapter is more recent than 1997. The majority of the cited references originate from the first half of the 1990s. In other chapters the situation is similar. In the most extreme cases some chapters, in this book published in the year 2000, do not contain any references later than 1993. As many of the chapters are not mainly concerned with the basics but with current applications of the analytical methods, a reader who wishes to be informed about the state of the art of a particular technique would be better served by one of the readily available review articles in the
scientific journals.
Who is likely to benefit from this book? Of course, specialists in the fields discussed will find this monograph useful for their work and may consider purchasing it because of the good technical quality of selected chapters. For example, V. G. Voinov has succeeded in providing a clear, well illustrated, and concise introduction to resonance electron capture mass spectrometry for analysis of organic compounds, which is currently one of the most sensitive analytical techniques available. On the other hand, the chapter by M. A. P. Martins and co-authors on NMR spectroscopy
of isoxazoles is so specialized that only a very limited number of scientists worldwide will be able to make use of these more than 50 pages, three quarters of which are tables with chemical shifts. For graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, selected chapters are excellent and highly valuable tools to get acquainted with the particular analytical methods. My assumption, however, is that this book is not likely to exceed the status of a library copy, because of its indistinct profile.
