This volume represents a revision and expansion of the 1971 edition of the CRC Manual of Analytical Toxicology. The introductory section has been expanded to include information regarding specimen collection, patient history, and interpretation of the analytical result. The second section presents detailed descriptions of approximately 100 different methods, with 35 to 40 of the methods being new to this edition. The complexity of the methods range from relatively simple qualitative tests to more sophisticated methods requiring gas chromatography with prior derivatization, and in most cases more than one method is listed for each substance. The third section contains some useful information on enzyme and radioimmunosassays, heavy metal detection, gas and thin-layer chromatography, and ultraviolet spectrophotometry.
