An overview is presented of the different aspects of the role of analytical chemistry in process monitoring and control. On-line monitoring is currently the most attractive option in this area, especially with unsegmented-flow techniques. In addition to allowing automation of these systems, the variety of ways in which calibration and recalibration can be performed allows their adaptation to any situation by using extremely simple, home-made manifolds. The most relevant designs are presented and critically discussed in this paper.
