Scenario of Modern Techniques of Analysis

Pandey, L P (1991) Scenario of Modern Techniques of Analysis. In: Workshop on Modern Methods of Chemical Analysis for Minerals and Metals, January 22-24, 1991, NML, Jamshedpur.



With the global growth in the industrialization and consciousness about quality, the importance of chemical analysis has exponentially increased. In fact, chemical analysis in mineral and metal industries and related institutions has always occupied a vital position. If you look back to the history, you are aware that the successful elucidation of the process of combustion by Lavoisier was mainly due to his employment of a balance in his investi-gation. He was among the first to recognize the immense power of quantitative measurement in research. The atomic concept of matter dates to our vedic era, when 'Kanad' gave the idea, that matter is composed of small particle i.e 'Kana'. It was certainly not with John Dalton. The major contribution of John Dalton was to introduce a quantitative aspect to this notion - an aspect which could be verified by actual experiment. Actually it is chemical analysis which provided the necessary support to convert the atomic theory from philosphical abstraction to physi-cal significance.
