Chemistry has been used for the detection of adulteration since the earliest times of recorded history going back at least 3 1/2 millennia. Since the invention of printing the subject is easier to follow. Aspects of law and its application via chemistry in regard to precious metals, food, drink and medicinal materials are reviewed over the last half millennium with particular reference to the U.K.
