Analytical Division


The Analytical Division supports the development of research and training with analytical sciences by keeping the community informed and providing a forum for analytical chemists and scientists to exchange information and

Our activities include:

  • Organising an annual Analytical Research Forum
  • Providing travel grants for PhD students and early career scientists
  • Supporting community-led scientific meetings and workshops
  • Recognising outstanding contributions to analytical science through our Prizes and Awards programme.
  • Running he annual Schools’ Analyst competition with support from the Analytical Division Regions and Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund 
  • Producing Technical Briefs through our Analytical Methods Committee. These are published in Analytical Methods to keep the community up to date with technical information and developments in analytical science.

You can keep up to date with all our activities through our newsletter Analytical Matters.

Our strategy

The Analytical Division strategy is defined by three key aims:

  • To promote good practice and awareness of analytical chemistry nationally and Internationally 
  • To promote skills and education in analytical chemistry 
  • To support continued professional development at all career stages

Get involved

The Analytical Division has an active regional structure. A variety of activities, from outreach to scientific symposia, are organized at a local level by regional committees for the benefit of the analytical community. 

All our Regions are eager to involve new members, so do please get involved in a region near you.
