Reviews
Review Quotes
A useful book, which I am happy to have on my reference shelf.
"...A very good introductory text for those wishing to understand the workings of chemometrics techniques."
"a worthwhile addition to the bookshelf of any chemist".
"Dr Adams has succeeded in providing a text which is focused on analytical spectroscopy and that gently guides the reader through the concepts with out recourse to too much matrix algebra."
Provides an excellent description of basic chemometric techniques.....A valuable source of supplemental material for a course on chemometrics....Highly recommended for all practicing analytical spectroscopists
Recommended for both students and scientists who are interested in a brief introduction to chemometric methods applicable in the field of analytical chemistry.A suitable introduction to chemometrics for both students and practitioners in analytical chemistry.

Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
An introductory text that uses a tutorial approach, this new edition covers the more sophisticated modelling techniques of principal components analysis and partial least square regression. The necessary background information is enhanced by up-to-date case studies.
Description for Reader
Chemometrics in Analytical Spectroscopy 2nd Edition provides a tutorial approach to the development of chemometric techniques and their application to the interpretation of analytical spectroscopic data. From simple descriptive statistics to the more sophisticated modelling techniques of principal components analysis and partial least squares regression, this updated edition provides necessary background, enhanced by case studies.The extensive use of worked examples throughout gives Chemometrics in Analytical Spectroscopy 2nd Edition special relevance in teaching and introducing chemometrics to undergraduates and post-graduates. The book is also ideal for analysts with little specialist background. Extracts from reviews of 1st Edition:"Adams has succeeded in providing a text which is focused on analytical spectroscopy and that gently guides the reader through the concepts without recourse to too much matrix algebra." Trends in Analytical Chemistry"...a very good introductory text for those wishing to understand the workings of chemometrics techniques."The Analyst
