Near Infrared Spectroscopy In Food Science And Technology Offers Basic Technical Information On Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) With Chapters On Basic Principles; Instrumentation; Sampling Techniques And Chemometrics.



DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c47493) has announced the addition of Near Infrared Spectroscopy This article is about spectroscopy. For the nonprofit nuclear energy watchdog, see Nuclear Information and Resource Service.
Near infrared spectroscopy
 in Food Science and Technology to their offering.

While there are many books on Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS NIRS Near Infrared Spectroscopy

), there are few that apply this valuable analytical technique An analytical technique is a method that is used to determine the concentration of a chemical compound or chemical element. There are a wide variety of techniques used for analysis, from simple weighing (gravimetric) to titrations (titrimetric)to very advanced techniques using  specifically to the food science and technology industries. Near Infrared Spectroscopy in Food Science and Technology fills this void. It offers basic technical information on NIRS with chapters on basic principles; instrumentation; sampling techniques; and chemometrics. It then details the methods used in four key areas of food science and technology: applications to agricultural and marine products; foodstuffs foodstuffs nplcomestibles mpl

 and processed foods; engineering and process monitoring; and food safety and disease diagnosis. Almost encyclopedic en·cy·clo·pe·dic  
adj.
1. Of, relating to, or characteristic of an encyclopedia.

2. Embracing many subjects; comprehensive: "an ignorance almost as encyclopedic as his erudition" 
 in its coverage, this book offers the reader almost everything they need to know to begin using Near Infrared Spectroscopy in their food analysis.
