Advanced Techniques of Analytical Chemistryexplains analytical chemistry in an accessible manner for students. The book provides basic and practical knowledge that helps the learner to understand the methods used in conducting experiments. Readers will understand the key concepts of qualitative and quantitative analysis through easy-to-read chapters written for chemistry students.

Volume 1 covers the topic of volumetric analysis in detail. Topic-wise chapters introduce the reader to volumetric titrations and then explain the range of titration techniques which include aqueous acid-base titration, non-aqueous titration, redox titration, complexometric titration and some miscellaneous methods like diazotisation titration, Kjeldahl’s method and the oxygen flask combustion method.

The combination of basic and advanced methods makes this an ideal textbook for chemistry students at graduate and undergraduate levels as well as an ideal handbook for the laboratory instructor.


The classical analytical techniques include gravimetric, volumetric, and titrimetric methods; on the other hand, instrumental techniques involve ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis), infrared (IR), and near-infrared (NIR) spectrophotometry fluorimetry, atomic spectroscopy (absorption/emission), electroanalytical chromatography.

The current volume of a book titled “Advance Techniques of Analytical Chemistry-Volume-1” is about techniques depending on the nature of reactions such as Acid-Base titrations which involve the reaction of an acid and a base. Redox titrations include redox reaction between analyte and titrant as the key reaction, Non-aqueous titrations, Complexometric titration which involves the formation of a colored complex compound, and some miscellaneous methods like Diazotisation Titrations, Kjeldahl Method and Oxygen flask combustion method, etc.

Advance Techniques of Analytical Chemistry-Volume-1 covers a number of important analytical chemistry topics. It does not, however, cover spectroscopic such as mass spectroscopy, IR or NMR as well as chromatographical techniques such as TLC, HPLC, HPTLC and other advanced techniques because these qualitative applications will be covered adequately incoming volumes i.e. Volume-II and Volume-III.

We are happy to recommend this book to students and researchers as there is more material than anyone can cover in one semester; I hope that the diversity of topics will meet the needs of different instructors.
