Practical manuals of environmental interest will appear, here.

The following manual was designed for a comprehensive laboratory practical for the MSc in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Salford  for one day per week extending over one semester.

It is an exhaustive sample preparation and instrumental analysis exercise for water and soil matrices employing a range of analytes and labelled analogues to illustrate and demonstrate a rigorous approach using environmental analysis protocols and established EPA methods. The figures to the manual are included below. Open in new tab to view enlarged images.
