Study Groups of the Division of Analytical Chemistry

Aims and objectives

The aim of the Bioanalytics study group is to search ways for bringing closer the analytical and bioanalytical chemistry community. This has proved to be a formidable task because a community of bioanalytical chemists does not appear to have formed yet. Many biochemists do analytical work but their emphasis is mostly on biochemistry itself. On the other hand there has been a growing trend for chemists and analytical chemists to do more and more bioanalytical work. Certain groups of (analytical) chemists have had a natural tendency for this, e.g., food chemists and forensic chemists. These observation underline the necessity of the aim stated above.

Aims and objectives

The aim of the Chemometrics study group is the promotion of Chemometrics in Europe through the organization of dedicated sessions in in EuChemS related conferences and of European Schools/Workshops on Chemometrics

Chemometric techniques are heavily used in analytical chemistry and they are at present gaining increasing acceptation in emerging omic analytical fields. The development of new chemometric methods continues to advance the state of the art in analytical instrumentation and methodology. It is an application driven discipline, and thus while the standard chemometric methodologies are very widely used in industry, academic groups are dedicated to the continued development of chemometric theory, method and application.

Aims and objectives

Aims of the Study Group Education are evaluation of curricula in analytical chemistry and promotion of new approaches in teaching analytical chemistry at the beginning of the 21st Century.

The attributes needed in the modern chemical industry and research have changed. This requires developments in chemistry’s coursework. Quality standards for curricula play an increasing role at the current stage of the Bologna process. Members of the SG Education participate actively in this development and promote proper approaches to this goal from within and outside Europe. Results and proposals are discussed during the Symposium Education Series at the beginning of each Euroanalysis Conference.

Contributions in Education in Analytical Chemistry

Aims and objectives

The main aim of the study group is to promote possibilities of modern electroanalytical methods and their benefits for society via organizing special sessions on electroanalytical chemistry in broad spectrum analytical and chemical conferences, student’s competitions in electroanalytical chemistry, competitions of the best papers on electroanalytical chemistry for young electroanalytical chemists, international seminars for young electroanalytical chemist, exchange of students in electroanalytical chemistry, and network of electroanalytical laboratories. Attention will be also paid to closer cooperation between electroanalytical laboratories in Europe and in Americas, Asia, Africa and Australia using the support of producers of electroanalytical instrumentation and international programs of the Erasmus+ type an cooperation via European society on electroanalytical chemistry (ESEAC), division V of IUPAC and European chemistry thematic network association (ECTNA). Moreover, the study group will prepare and publish papers for generally oriented analytical journals promoting electroanalytica chemistry.

Aims and objectives

The aim of the History study group is to study and publish accounts of the history of analytical chemistry in Europe with reference to individual countries, specific locations, professional bodies and personalities. One primary way to achieve this is to promote and support a lecture on material relevant to the host country at each Euroanalysis Conference and its subsequent publication.

Aims and objectives

The aim of the Study Group Nanoanalytics is to start a dialog within the analytical chemistry community on the concept of Nanoanalytics. There is however a need to explain in a clear way what Nanoanalytics does, what the outputs of Nanoanalytics are and what the terminology means. – A concept and definition of Nanoanalytics. – The most important types and classifications of nanotechnologies used in the chemical analysis. – The scope of applications of Nanoanalytics in Chemical Analysis.

Annual Reports

Year: 2018   2019  2020  2021 

Aims and objectives

Report on activities in Metrology, quality assurance, accreditation and all areas related to quality issues of analytical chemistry. Liaison to other Divisions, working groups, working parties and governmental bodies.

Accreditation of laboratories is common practice in industry and accreditation is introduced in order to sustain quality and reliability. Practices and procedures of quality assurance are considered also in science and the influence on quality of scientific results is evaluated and discussed. It is the objective of the Study Group Quality Assurance to follow the development of quality assurance and metrology in analytical chemistry with the aim of producing guides to assess quality of results, which eventually may create a new basis for decision making that may, or may not, have a significance to the way science is conducted in general. Both statistics and metrology are currently considered for renewal and improvements as to meet contemporary demands for quality in analytical chemistry.
