Authors then pay their main attention to the history of  anylytical chemistry. Despite the fact that analytical chemistry has been taught as a separate discipline at the Charles University since the middle of the 19th century, its roots can be traced back to the early years of the Charles University’s existence, i.e., six centuries before the Faculty of Science of the university was established.
