Analytical Methods

The following on-line resources are some that I find useful. The emphasis on environmental applications is simply because the methods are available on-line. The compilations listed at the end require subscriptions, so check your library. You will find other sources and handbooks for clinical analysis, food chemistry, etc in your library.

Environmental Methods

EPA Test Method Collections
    http://www.epa.gov/osa/fem/methcollectns.htm, includes:

National Environmental Methods Index (USGS and EPA)
    https://www.nemi.gov/home/

Index of Sampling and Analytical Methods (OSHA, mostly air sampling methods):
    https://www.osha.gov/dts/sltc/methods/toc.html

Other Methods

USDA Chemistry Laboratory Guidebook (methods for additives, nutrients, and residues in food):
    http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Science/Chemistry_Lab_Guidebook/index.asp

Virginia Dept Forensic Science - Forensic Toxicology Manuals (examples of analytical methods)
    http://www.dfs.virginia.gov/laboratory-forensic-services/toxicology/procedure-manuals/
