Analytical chemistry is the science of obtaining, processing, and communicating information about the composition and structure of matter. In other words, it is the art and science of determining what matter is and how much of it exists.
Here are entered works on the scientific study involving the identification of chemical compounds that make up a given substance. Use only if a narrower term does not apply (e.g., "Chromatographic analysis" or "Spectrophotometry").
