This book aims to cover the most important advances in these new areas, as well as in classical FIA, which still remains the most popular flow analysis technique used in analytical practice.

Advances in Flow Injection Analysis and Related Techniques

The concept of flow injection analysis (FIA) was first proposed in 1975 by Ruzicka and Hansen, and this initiated a field of research that would, over more than three decades, involve thousands of researchers, and which has to date resulted in close to 20,000 publications in the international scientific literature. Since its introduction, a number of books, including some specialized monographs, have been published on this subject with the latest in 2000. However, in this decade there has been a number of significant advances in the flow analysis area, and in particular in sequential injection analysis (SIA) techniques, and more recently with the introduction of Lab on a Valve (LOV) and bead injection flow systems. This book aims to cover the most important advances in these new areas, as well as in classical FIA, which still remains the most popular flow analysis technique used in analytical practice. Topics covered in the 23 chapters include the fundamental and underlying principles of flow analysis and associated equipment, the fluid-dynamic theory of FIA, an extensive coverage of detection methods (e.g. atomic and molecular spectrometry, electroanalytical methods). In addition, there are several chapters on on-line separation (e.g. filtration, gas diffusion, dialysis, pervaporation, solvent and membrane extraction, and chromatography), as well as on other sample pretreatment techniques, such as digestion. The book also incorporates several chapters on major areas of application of flow analysis in industrial process monitoring (e.g food and beverages, drugs and pharmaceuticals), environmental and agricultural analysis and life sciences. The contributing authors, who include the founders of flow injection analysis, are all leading experts in flow analytical techniques, and their chapters not only provide a critical review of the current state of this area, but also suggest future trends. - Provides a critical review of the current state of and future trends in flow analytical techniques - Offers a comprehensive elucidation of the principles and theoretical basis of flow analysis - Presents important applications in all major areas of chemical analysis, from food products to environmental concerns

Flow Injection Analysis

This Second edition of the flow injection analysis (FIA) text which has become a standard in the field in four languages, is written by two pioneers in the field, who have themselves discovered many of the techniques and designed much of the equipment employed in FIA. Newly revised to account for the many recent developments in FIA, this book presents the state-of-the-art in FIA theory, techniques, and future trends. Specific topics covered include continous-flow analyzers, chemical kinetics in an FIA system, theory of dispersion related to FIA, single-line FIA manifolds, FIA determinations based on separation processes, commercially available flow-injection analyzers, the FIA laboratory--a microconduit-based pedagogical system, review of the flow-injection literature, and flow injection analysis now and in the future.

Flow Injection Analysis

This is a practical guide for first-time and experienced users of Flow Injection Analysis (FIA). It gives, not a detailed theoretical analysis, but a ``nuts and bolts'' approach to the description of the technique and how it can be utilized to solve analytical chemical problems. The advantages of flow injection, how, when, why and where it works are all fully explained. Criteria for the choice of hardware and useful hints for maintenance are provided. The large variety of detectors suitable to combine with FIA are discussed, as are special modes of operation, their advantages and their limitations, and also conversion of batch methods to FIA methods. Numerous in-depth descriptions of applications of FIA techniques in water, soil, pharmaceutical and industrial analysis are featured, and a complete bibliography is included. The authors have spent several years demonstrating, lecturing and using FIA and the basic outline of their book closely follows the schedule of the FIA workshops they have taught. It will be an invaluable tool for all chemists who perform analyses on a routine basis.

Flow Injection Analysis

The concept of flow injection analysis (FIA) was introduced in the mid-seventies. It was preceded by the success of segmented flow analysis, mainly in clinical and environmental analysis. This advance, as well as the development of continuous monitors for process control and environmental monitors, ensured the success of the FIA methodology. As an exceptionally effective means of mechanization for various procedures of wet chemical analysis, the FIA methodology, in use with a whole arsenal of detection methods of modern analytical chemistry, proved to be of great interest to many. The fast and intensive development of the FIA methodology was due to several factors essential for routine analytical determinations, such as very limited sample consumption, the short analysis time based on a transient signal measurement in a flow-through detector and an on-line carrying out difficult operations of separation, preconcentration or physicochemical conversion of analytes into detectable species. Twenty-year studies by numerous research groups all over the world have provided significant progress in the theoretical description of dispersion phenomena in FIA and various operations of physicochemical treatment of the analyte. This volume is devoted to the presentation of the current status of development of the instrumentation for FIA and the many fields of its practical applications, based on an extensive bibliography of original research publications.

Flow Injection Analysis of Marine Samples

Marine chemistry is a matter of scientific interest from many points of view, above all those related to environmental contamination. Nevertheless, they are some problems in the analysis of marine samples (seawater, marine animals, macroalgaes, sediments, etc.) such as high salt content of the matrix, low analyte(s) concentrations, sample dissolution, etc., which results in complicated and tedious sample pre-treatments. However, many of these drawbacks can be solved by the application of automatic methods based on flow injection analysis (FIA). The concept of FIA was first proposed in 1975, and from this date, many researchers have proposed analytical methodologies involving FIA to determine organic and inorganic analytes in marine samples. FIA methods allow automatic handling of sample and reagent solutions with a strict control of reaction parameters. Furthermore, a FIA manifold is robust in shipboard laboratories, with the advantage of minimal sample handling and thus low exposure to contamination. Flow injection methodologies improve off-line sample pre-treatments, between others: preconcentration by using chelating resins, solid-phase extraction, and lixiviation procedures, resulting in rapid, efficient, safety, inexpensive and environmentally acceptable methodologies for the determination of several analytes in marine samples. Other advantages of FI methodologies are an important contribution to achieve a miniaturised, automatic, and green Analytical Chemistry. This book aims to cover the most important advances in the analysis of marine samples employing flow injection methodologies and will be a tool for all chemists who perform analyses on a routine basis in the environmental field.
