Professor Szabadváry's history of analytical chemistry is the first systematic, continuous description of our attempts to find the composition of substances and then apply them to definite purposes. Included are essential biographical details of more than 800 chemists, providing the valuable personal stories behind the advances in analytical methods.
Ferenc Szabadváryis a director general at the National Museum for Science and Technology, Budapest, and a professor of general chemistry at Technical University, Budapest
