Premliminary steps of the analytical process. From sampling to detection

M. D. Luque de Castro

Department of Analytical Chemistry, Faculty of Sciences, Annex C-3 Campus of Rabanales, University of Córdoba, E-14071 Córdoba,Spain

An overview of current ways of automating or accelerating the preliminary steps of the analytical process is presented as a way of emphasizing the role of these steps in the final results. Sampling and weighing, dissolution, leaching or physical removal, in addition to clean-up and preconcentration are the steps discussed along with this overview.
