About this book

The series Topics in Current Chemistry Collections presents critical reviews from the journal Topics in Current Chemistry organized in topical volumes. The scope of coverage is all areas of chemical science including the interfaces with related disciplines such as biology, medicine and materials science. The goal of each thematic volume is to give the non-specialist reader, whether in academia or industry, a comprehensive insight into an area where new research is emerging which is of interest to a larger scientific audience.Each review within the volume critically surveys one aspect of that topic and places it within the context of the volume as a whole. The most significant developments of the last 5 to 10 years are presented using selected examples to illustrate the principles discussed. The coverage is not intended to be an exhaustive summary of the field or include large quantities of data, but should rather be conceptual, concentrating on the methodological thinking that will allow the non-specialist reader to understand the information presented. Contributions also offer an outlook on potential future developments in the field.

Reviews

“The book is a collection of review articles, which provide a wide overview of very different analytical techniques applied to cultural heritage addressing a number of applications concerning archaeological materials, paintings and artwork. In every review article, an up-to-date reference list gives the reader the opportunity for further, more specialist reading. The book is addressed to established scientists and graduate students, and in general to those who are responsible for research in the cultural heritage field.” (Maria Careri, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, September, Vol. 409 (22), September, 2017)
