Apart from the effect of gold discoveries on chemical science in colonial Australia in the 1860s (see July issue, pp. 18a??21; August issue, pp. 12a??16),a? this decade saw a broadening of activity in analytical chemistry, including an interest in spectrum analysis. Two men in Colonial Australia were responsible for three publications on spectrum analysis in the 1860s; one of these men arrived here involuntarily. To place this Australian story (Part 7) in perspective, some historical background is necessary.
