Introduces the most up-to-date technology to help increase cost- and time-effectiveness Considers off-line, at-line, and near-line methodologies and on-line, in-line, and non-invasive approaches Addresses advantages and attributes of techniques, along with restrictions and limitations Supplements more general works on process analytical chemistry Helps professionals from both the industrial and academic sectors in successful development, commissioning, operation, and maintenance of a process analyzer The successful development, operation, and maintenance of a process analyzer is a multi-disciplinary effort. It involves production chemists, analytical chemists, process engineers, and plant operatives. Accordingly, a team of authors was culled from many specialties of both the industrial and academic sectors for Spectroscopy in Process Analysis to addresses the attributes, requirements, and applications of spectroscopic techniques using a variety of novel approaches. The ten articles focus on unique techniques - UV-visible, near-infrared, mid-infrared, mass, and Raman spectroscopies, and more - as each applies to spectroscopic disciplines. The authors present magnetic resonance techniques, chemometrics, and considerations of sampling and engineering. Supplementing more general works on process analytical chemistry, the volume concentrates on the current state of spectroscopic technology and how to most usefully apply it in process analysis. Cost and time effectiveness are increasingly important to process spectroscopy. Whether your goal is quality assurance or monitor and control, proper use of current knowledge is critical for success. Spectroscopy in Process Analysis provides the valuable information you need to optimize the use of the latest technological advances.
