This Second edition of the flow injection analysis (FIA) text which has become a standard in the field in four languages, is written by two pioneers in the field, who have themselves discovered many of the techniques and designed much of the equipment employed in FIA. Newly revised to account for the many recent developments in FIA, this book presents the state-of-the-art in FIA theory, techniques, and future trends. Specific topics covered include continous-flow analyzers, chemical kinetics in an FIA system, theory of dispersion related to FIA, single-line FIA manifolds, FIA determinations based on separation processes, commercially available flow-injection analyzers, the FIA laboratory--a microconduit-based pedagogical system, review of the flow-injection literature, and flow injection analysis now and in the future.
Hansen received a Master of Science degree in Chemistry from the Technology University of Denmark in 1964. Three years later he earned his Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Science degree in 1986 from the same university.
Hansen began his career as a postdoctoral fellow at National Research Council of Canada in 1967. Two years later he joined the department of chemistry and became an assistant professor at Technology University of Denmark. In 1972, Elo was appointed an associate professor at the same university and held it for 17 years.
In 1989, he took a position of a senior associate professor and professor of analytical chemistry in 1990 at Technology University of Denmark. Since 2007 he has been a professor emeritus at the same university.
