The JSPS/NUS Seminar on Analytical Chemistry is part of an ongoing exchange programme to promote direct contact between scientists from Japan and Singapore. This programme also provides avenues for scientists to present new research findings and discuss areas of mutual interest. Mostly in the area of Analytical Chemistry, 28 scientific papers were presented in this seminar, of which 12 were by Japanese scientists and 16 by Singapore scientists. Since the seminar was aimed at encouraging participation from a broad spectrum of analytical chemists, it was not confined to specialised topics. Instead, a wide range of analytical techniques were discussed, including electrochemical, spectroscopic and separation methods.
