"Following the completion of his investigation of natural fats, Chevreul wrote a work of a more general nature, ConsidÈrations gÈnÈrales sur l'analyse organique (1824), which is a reflection on the many years of research with organic material. Here Chevreul considered the methods of research in organic chemistry, methods that he himself used with such success in his investigations. The primary analytical problems were how to determine whether one had a pure substance or a mixture and how to resolve the frequently complex animal or plant material into its immediate principles. It was Chevreul who placed this immediate analysis on a rigorous basis. He gave precise criteria for what constituted a pure organic compound and presented for the first time a clear and accurate account of the methods of immediate analysis that must necessarily precede elementary analysis.".
