Klíčová slova:analytická chemie, dějiny vědy, identita chemiků, historie chemie
The article commemorates five centenaries of Czech analytical chemistry associated with the Faculty of Science, Charles University. Above all, a hundred years passed since the discovery of polarography by Jaroslav Heyrovsky. The method, the principle of which he discovered in February 1922, subsequently gave rise to many electroanalytical methods, which still affect many fields of human activity. The second centenary is closely connected with the name of Prof. Heyrovsky, namely, the first publication of this discovery ever, in Chemické listy journal in October 1922. The remaining anniversaries are personal, being associated with a hundred years since the birth of three outstanding Czech analytical chemists, Jaroslav Zýka, Václav Suk, and Miroslav Malát. Their most important contributions to the development of chemistry are reviewed.
