Analytical Chemistry and Chemical Analysis

by Vladimir Zaitsev

The International Congress on Analytical Chemistry and Chemical Analysis (AC&CA-05) took place in Kiev, Ukraine, 12–18 September 2005.

AC&CA-05 belongs to the series of Ukrainian conferences in analytical chemistry established in 1970 by the Ukrainian Chemical Society and Chemical Division of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences. AC&CA-05 is the seventh conference in analytical chemistry in Ukraine and the first international meeting on analytical science in Ukraine.

AC&CA-05 was organized by the Scientific Council of Analytical Chemistry at the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Chemical Society, and Kyiv Taras Shevchenko National University, in collaboration with the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS) and IUPAC. The congress was dedicated to the centenary of the birth of the outstanding Ukrainian scientist Anatoly K. Babko for his expertise in analytical chemistry and in the chemistry of complex compounds. The congress was sponsored by IUPAC and by the International Association for the Promotion of Cooperation with Scientists from the New Independent States of the Former Soviet Union (INTAS). The organizing committee was chaired by Professor Vladimir Zaitsev (Kiev, Ukraine), and the program committee was chaired by Professor Valery Antonovich (Odessa, Ukraine).

The main goals of the conference were to survey the status of modern analytical science in Ukraine against the status of modern analytical science globally, to renew international collaboration of Ukrainian analytical chemists and educators, and to approach positions of scientists and analytical engineers.

The organizing committee received great help and support from many international bodies, including chemical societies from Russia, Japan, Austria, Germany, and Great Britain, as well as scientific Web portals such as SpectroscopyNOW and ChemWeb.

AC&CA-05 consisted of 12 invited lectures and seven symposia: “General Aspects of Analytical Chemistry,” “Analytical Methods,” “Objects of the Analysis,” “Sensors and Tests,” “Separation and Preconcentration,” “Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis,” and “History and Methodology of Analytical Chemistry.” The conference program included two special symposia: “Memorial 1,” dedicated to Anatoly Babko, and “Analytical Russian-Germany-Ukrainian Symposium” (ARGUS-9).

AC&CA-05 had 327 participants from 30 countries, including Ukraine (45%), Russia (25%), Iran, Serbia and Montenegro, Byelorussia, Germany, France, Japan, and Spain. There were 303 presentations in total: 123 oral sessions and 180 posters. Oral presentations were distributed as follows: 12 invited, 40 keynote, and 71 regular lectures. The highlight of the congress was active participation of young scientists. The audience was distributed as follows: 47% PhD students and 26% young scientists. The congress provided an excellent opportunity for young Ukrainian researchers, teachers, and students, as well as for scientists from neighboring countries to meet representatives of the international scientific community and to reestablish links with European colleagues, thus initiating new collaborative work.

The main results of the congress as well as list of participants and a book of abstracts is available through the congress Web site: www.achem.univ.kiev.ua/conference/babko/.

The congress materials were published in the book of abstracts and as special issue of Ukrainian Journal of Chemistry (Issues 9 and 10, 2005).

Professor Vladimir Zaitsev <zaitsev@univ.kiev.ua>, who chaired the local organizing committee, is chair of the Analytical Chemistry Department at Taras Shevchenko National University in Kiev, Ukraine.
