Presenting nearly 50% new and revised material, this thoroughly updated edition of Handbook of Near Infrared Analysis, Third Edition incorporates the latest advances in instrumentation, computerization, calibration, and method development in NIR spectroscopy.

Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, which is fast, inexpensive, and easy-to-use, can be used to analyze small samples of virtually any composition. Handbook of Near Infrared Analysis, (Third Edition) underscores current trends in sample preparation, calibration transfer, process control, data analysis, and commercial NIR instrumentation. New chapters highlight novel applications including the analysis of agro-forestry products, polymers, blood, and control serum. They also cover NIR spectra, process analytical technologies (PAT), quantitative and qualitative analyses for nutraceuticals, NIR photography uses in medicine, and counterfeit detection methods for pharmaceuticals and currency.

Offering the most complete single-source guide of its kind, the Handbook of Near Infrared Analysis, Third Edition continues to offer practicing chemists and spectroscopists an unparalleled combination of theoretical foundations, cutting-edge applications, and practical experience provided firsthand by more than 60 experts in the field.
