Analytic Chemistry

"Analytical chemistry is a scientific discipline that develops and applies methods, instruments, and strategies to obtain information on the composition and nature of matter in space and time"

Robert Kellner, Analytical Chemistry, Vol. 66, No. 2, January 15, 1994 99A-101A

The analytical chemist operates in a wide variety of professions of our society. Many decisions are made on the basis of results obtained by chemical analysis. Think of it! Your health is monitored by clinical analysis, and the level of pharmaceuticals supplied to you at the chemist is decided on the basis of analytical chemistry.
