Chemical instruments are widely used in modern analytical chemistry for chemical analysis. However, modern chemical instruments especially the hyphenated instruments generate huge amount of data in each measurement. Data compression techniques are required to reduce the data for storage and further analysis. In this paper, data compression techniques commonly applied to analytical chemistry are reviewed.

Key words: Chemical instruments, Analytical chemistry, Data compression techniques
