Glossary of Analytical Chemistry Terms (GAT)

  • Bernd Wenclawiak


Why is it so important to have a glossary of analytical terms? Because there are so many different acronyms, abbreviations, and incorrectly used ‘terms’, that even specialists sometimes have problems in understanding each other. A glossary is like a dictionary with the terms being the words in the vocabulary.
