The author ponders on the role of vapor generation (VG) in atomic spectroscopy. He notes the benefits offered by VG techniques such as that powerful VG techniques can be combined with preconcentration and hyphenated with a variety of chromatographies for unparalleled performance. He also addresses the challenges in the field of VG, including the identification of many short-lived and novel species arising from reactions of tetrahydroborate with transition and noble metals.
