Topical Collection Information

For this first Special Issue/topical collection, we decided to use the title "Analytical and Applied Chemistry: Challenges and Opportunities for Growth in the 21st Century", as never before has analytical chemistry, especially applied analytical chemistry, seen such a growing pre-eminence in all fields. Nowadays, the analytical approach is fundamental from production to quality control, from food to anti-adulteration analyses, from doping to forensic analyses, from environmental analyses to those in the clinical/biological field.

In this Special Issue, we want to collect reviews and research papers that report on the state of the art of the various "sections" in which the journal is organized, while trying to offer ideas and opportunities for reflection on the possible challenges that will soon await those who work in the analytical and applied analytical chemistry field. In particular, we also want to highlight and try to provide possible elements for discussion and ideas for research/collaboration for the huge opportunities that will open up in the near future and the growth prospects of the international analytical community.

The goal is to put in contact and create a "core" of experts who can act as a reference with their ideas and opinions in order to avoid the "dispersion" of forces and bring analytical chemistry and applied analytical chemistry at the center of the international scientific scene. Our additional goal is to increase the role of the analytical field as a reference against all that competes with qualitative–quantitative analysis in a complex matrix through various instrumental techniques, trying to increase the opportunities for intervention and growth in this branch of chemistry.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Analytica—A Journal of Analytical Chemistry and Chemical Analysis is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

The analysis of urinary organic acids is useful for patients suspected to have inborn errors of metabolism known as organic acidurias. These diseases cause an accumulation of organic acids in body fluids and their abnormal excretion in urines. By means of chemometrics tools, such as principal component analysis and multiple linear regression, it was concluded that the conditions used in our laboratory are really the most suitable to achieve high yields of analytes.
