In this review the history of chemistry and specifically the history and the significant steps of the evolution of analytical chemistry are presented. In chronological time spans, covering the ancient world, the middle ages, the period of the 19th century, and the three evolutional periods, from the verge of the 19th century to contemporary times, it is given information for the progress of chemistry and analytical chemistry. During this period, analytical chemistry moved gradually from its pure empirical nature to more rational scientific activities, transforming itself to an autonomous branch of chemistry and a separate discipline.

This tutorial review summarises the current state of green analytical chemistry with special emphasis on environmentally friendly sample preparation techniques. Green analytical chemistry is a part of the sustainable development concept; its history and origins are described. Miniaturisation of analytical devices and shortening the time elapsing between performing analysis and obtaining reliable analytical results are important aspects of green analytical chemistry.

The present situation of analytical chemistry teaching within a chemistry curriculum is exemplified by the reformed chemistry curriculum in Germany. This approach is contrasted with teaching analytical chemistry within a novel curriculum in natural sciences termed 'applied science'. The latter curriculum ensures a superior education in chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics and information science, thus gaining an integrated perspective of analytical chemistry. Read More
