About us

The Japan Society for Analytical Chemistry (JSAC) was established in 1952 to contribute to the progress of science, technology, culture, and welfare.

 Analytical chemistry is a multidisciplinary field involving science, engineering, agriculture, medicine, dentistry, and pharmaceutics. To-this-date, approximately 5000 researchers in various industrial, governmental and academic fields have joined the JSAC. Among the analytical chemistry societies, JSAC is one of the world’s largest academic societies with multidisciplinary active members.

 JSAC has a head office in Tokyo, and seven branch offices in each region of Japan and each office cooperates continuously to support membership and to promote the analytical chemistry.

 Analytical chemistry is a discipline to obtain chemical information for purposes such as detection, separation, and characterization. Nowadays, analytical chemistry has been expanded to analytical “science” involving both analysis and intelligence.

 Achievements of analytical chemistry are essential for industry (chemical products, metals, ceramics, semiconductors, medicines, and foods), global issues (resource, energy, and environment), and cutting-edge science (electronic and biotechnology). In other words, analytical chemistry significantly contributes to sophisticated information, materials development, and medical therapy. Besides, life and cultures, which do not seem to be related to chemistry, occasionally requires knowledge and technique of analytical chemistry. There is no doubt that most fields of natural science are based on analytical chemistry.
