Abstract

The past decade has witnessed a remarkable resurgence in interest in analytical chemistry. The analytical chemist is now recognized as an indispensable member of the research team which is used to attack complex problems of modern chemistry in any of its branches. The increased prestige of the analytical chemist may be attributed, in part, to his considerable success in solving the difficult analytical problems which have been presented by the sudden demand for formerly seldom used or unknown materials such as the antibiotics, uranium, and the new elements formed by transmutation. Much of the success has been achieved by the development of new physical methods of analysis. These methods, commonly called instrumental methods because of the necessity of the emphasis on instrumentation, have opened a new field to the analytical chemist and have greatly broadened his vision.
