This paper describes an overview of the development and use of a series of context-based case studies for the teaching of analytical chemistry to undergraduate students. A rationale behind using case studies in teaching analytical chemistry is given, together with a description of the case studies that we have developed and use with our students. Two of these are described in more detail. We summarize our experiences in using a context-based approach to teaching analytical chemistry including feedback from students.
