For the first time this year, we would like to invite you to participate in the Analytical Challenge, a series of puzzles to entertain and challenge our readers. This feature not only adds to the general attractiveness of 'Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry' but also provides you with points of further interest for your work and study. And, again, there is a prize to be won (a Springer-Verlag book from our catalogue up to a value of €75,-). These Analytical Challenges are published every two months. Last year, we began with a series of spectroscopy challenges by Ernö Pretsch and Renato Zenobi, which can still be viewed on the 'Springer' Chemistry website http://www.springeronline.com. This year we will publish several different types of puzzle in more diverse areas of analytical and bioanalytical science. In the Challenge below microfabrication is the topic. Please read on.

    Miniaturization of chemical analysis using microfabrication is an emerging technology. The use of polymeric materials as opposed to conventional glass substrate is also a promising alternative. As most polymeric materials are hydrophobic relative to glass, we describe here the implication for...

However, endpoint-discontinuity...
