Analytical Chemistry

Who we are - what we do

The voice of analytical chemistry

The GDCh Division of Analytical Chemistry has around 2400 members and has been the representative of analytical chemistry in Germany since it was founded in 1951. It networks universities, training institutions, authorities, industry, equipment manufacturers and independent laboratories as well as the media. It gives analytical chemistry a strong voice in science, business, politics and the public and promotes training in analytical chemistry. Intensive, factual work is done in the nine working groups and in the Industry Forum Analytics.

The Board of the Division involves the younger members ( Young Analytical Chemists ) intensively - also by electing two Young Analytical Chemists to the Board.

As a central scientific Conference , the Division organizes ANAKON in odd years. Plenary and discussion lectures as well as poster contributions convey the focus of scientific progress and the most important results from research and development.

By participating in the scientific committee and organizing the scientific program, the Division participates in the organization of the analytica conference, which will take place in even years during the analytica trade fair in Munich.

In addition, special support is given to Conferences of the Divisions working groups and international analytical conferences on German soil .

Awards & Honors

Every two years the Division of Analytical Chemistry awards the Clemens-Winkler Medal (scientific life's work) and the Division Award of the analytical chemistry Section (special achievements by young scientists). You can find information on other awards from the Division and its working groups on the Awards and Honors page.

The GDCh's Fresenius Award honors personalities who have rendered services to the scientific development and promotion of analytical chemistry.


The organ of the Division of Analytical Chemistry is the Mitteilungsblatt, which is published four times a year. All section members receive the printed journal as part of their membership.

Promotion of young scientists

The Division supports the activities of young academics through a generous scholarship program to (co) finance the active participation of young specialist group members in national and international Conferences, seminars or workshops.

The Young Analytical Chemists provide two members of the Divisions board and organize annual meetings and doctoral seminars.

Spring School Analytics

The aim of the Spring School Industrial analytical chemistry block course is to familiarize students in master?s courses in chemistry with analytical methods and issues that are of outstanding importance in industrial analysis.
