Analytical Methods Committee of the Royal Society of Chemistry
The Analytical Methods Committee (AMC) is the Committee of the Analytical Division Council that handles matters of technical importance to the members of the RSC Analytical Division and the analytical science community in general. The broad aim of the AMC is to participate in national and international efforts to establish a comprehensive framework for appropriate quality in chemical measurement, and to keep the analytical science community informed of developments.
It achieves this aim through the activities of its expert sub-committees as well as the parent Committee, which fulfil the following functions:
development, revision and promulgation of validated, standardised and official methods of analysis
development and establishment of suitable performance criteria for methods and instruments
use and development of appropriate statistical methods
identification and promulgation of best analytical practice, including aspects relating to sampling, equipment, instrumentation and materials
generation of validated compositional data of natural products for interpretative purposes.
