Christian`s Analytical Chemistry

Christian, Analytical Chemistry, 7e
© 2014
With the 7th Edition of Analytical Chemistry, renowned chemists, Purnendu (Sandy)
Dasgupta and Kevin Schug, both of the University of Texas Arlington, join the author
team. The new edition focuses on more in-depth coverage of the principles and
techniques of quantitative analysis and instrumental analysis (aka Analytical Chemistry).
The goal of the text is to provide a foundation of the analytical process, tools, and
computational methods and resources, and to illustrate with problems that bring realism
to the practice and importance of analytical chemistry. It is designed for undergraduate
college students majoring in chemistry and in fields related to chemistry.

Each chapter is introduced with a summary paragraph that lists the topics to be
covered, providing a broad overview of each important topic, including key
learning objectives to help students focus on the key topics.
Detailed instructions are given on how to use and take advantage of
spreadsheets in analytical calculations, plotting, and data processing. The use of
Excel Goal Seek and Excel Solver is introduced for solving complex problems.
There are 46 experiments, grouped by topic, illustrating most of the
measurement techniques presented in the text. Each contains a description of
the principles and chemical reactions involved so the student gains an overview
of what is being determined and how.
Problems and Recommended References are grouped by topic, for ease in
assignment. Numerous references are classics with historical but valuable
information, but references have been extensively updated.
PowerPoint slides of all figures and tables in the text are posted on the book
website for each chapter, with summaries of text material for each.
New To This Edition
Professor’s Favorite Examples and Professor’s Favorite Problems have
been added throughout the text. We asked professors and practicing analytical
chemists to suggest new analytical examples and problems, especially as they
relate to real world practice.
New chapter (chapter 22) on mass spectrometry, since this is increasingly a
routine and powerful analytic tool. Significant updates to the liquid
chromatography chapter (chapter 21) that not only give the fundamentals of
various techniques, how they evolved and their operation, but also what the
capabilities of different systems are and guidance for selecting a suitable system
for a specific application.
Revised chapters, especially those dealing with instrumentation to include
recent technological innovations.
Historical information is added throughout to put into perspective how the tools
have been developed and evolved.
Video tutorials created by students of Professor Dasgupta to illustrate the use of
powerful Excel programs to perform complicated calculations, and to create plots
of titration curves, alpha vs. pH, logC vs. pH, etc.
New experiments have been added. All experiments are available for download
from the book companion site.
QR codes are provided for selected text website materials, allowing students to
browse for the videos, URL links, etc. on their smartphones or iPads.

Resources and Support
Instructor & Student Companion Sites are available at and include the following resources:
Materials on the website include supplemental materials for different
chapters that expand on the abbreviated presentations in the text.
Following is a list of the types of materials on the website:
o Videos
o URLs
o PPT slides
o Excel spreadsheets
o Experiments
o Certain textual material dealing with specific applications of
analytical chemistry have been moved entirely to the website
(i.e. chapters 25 (Clinical chemistry) and chapter 26
(Environmental Sampling and Analysis) and Chapter G
(Genomics and Proteomics).
A saleable comprehensive solutions manual is available for use by
instructors and students in which all problems are completely worked out
and all questions are answered. Answers for spreadsheet problems,
which include the spreadsheets, are given on the text website. Answers
to all problems are given in Appendix F.
