The article provides information on a quiz section, which has been recently included in the journal "Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry," to entertain and challenge readers. These Analytical Challenges will be published every two months. The problem starts with a series of spectroscopy challenges put forward by researchers in Zurich, Switzerland, in which a substance may be identified by means of a collection of 5-6 spectra. Readers have to name that substance. There is a prize to be won; a Springer-Verlag book from the publisher's catalogue up to a value of &eeuro; 75.
