The SI Analytics pH Handbook gives hands-on practical know how about pH measurement and pH determination. Numerous illustrations, tables and diagrams are contained in its 100 pages to convey how the pH is measured correctly.
Our objective was to combine basic knowledge of pH measurement with the laboratory experience of the SI Analytics experts, made available in a practical handbook.
With its added recommendations on which pH electrodes to use for specific applications, the pH Handbook is an indispensable guide for your day-to-day laboratory routines.
