Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (ABC) is the society journal for rapid publication and global visibility of (bio-)analytical research!

→ ABC mourns the passing of its Editor Prof. Maria Cruz Moreno-Bondi. May she rest in peace. Maria was one of the guest editors of our recent topcial collection featuring Sustainability in (Bio-)Analytical Chemistry – enjoy reading all contributions:

ABC is the only general analytical chemistry journal supported by a large group of learned societies around the world. Its mission is the rapid publication of excellent and high-impact research articles on fundamental and applied topics of analytical and bioanalytical measurement science. Its scope is broad, and ranges from novel measurement platforms and their characterization to multidisciplinary approaches that effectively address important scientific problems.

The journal provides Critical Reviews, current Trends and Communications in addition to Research Papers. Special features are the Analytical Challenge, educational articles and topical paper collections.
