Field Flow Fractionation Handbook
edited by Martin Schimpf

Field Flow Fractionation (FFF) is an emerging separation technique, which has been proven successful in the analysis of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology products, polymers, soils, and foods, among others. This book contains a comprehensive description of the four primary FFF subtechniques, with specific examples and applications for each.

The Field-Flow Fractionation Handbook has many great values, one of which lies in the fact that the authors are experts in the respective subtechniques that they address, and so are able to advise the reader, from firsthand experience, on how to avoid certain pitfalls associated with developing and implementing FFF applications.
