|New book "Handbook of Stable Isotope Analytical Techniques" will be published by Elsevier in October 2004. There will be a volume 1 (part 1 and 2) and volume 2 (part 3).
Volume 1 is expected to be available in October 2004 (it is available for order now). Part 1 on analytical methods, including subjective reviews, specialized and novel methods, and specific tools/machines. Part 2 on development of mass spectrometers, ion sources, standards and calibration, oxygen corrections for SO2 in mass spectrometry and experimental methods to obtain isotopic fractionation factors (part 2 also contains appendices with general information).
Volume 2 will be published later, probably in 2005. Part 3 comprises an review on existing analytical methods, based on published literature, reports, personal communication and own experience, and consisting of diagrams of systems with condensed descriptions of preparation methods and analytical procedures, and include directly related important matters (e.g. chemicals, temperatures of processes, grains sizes, laser types and qualities, preparation of reagents, catalysers etc.).
Book editor is Pier de Groot and more information about the content is available from http://users.pandora.be/handbook/index.html and Elsevier http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/bookdescription.cws_home/672681/description#description.
