The review discusses various analytical chemical applications of the Mössbauer effect. The labelled atoms used are Mössbauer
isotopes and the measured parameters for analysis are those of the Mössbauer spectra. High efficiency of the technique is
demonstrated by examples in studies of the structure of compounds, polyfunctional with respect to the Mössbauer element, and
of the mecahnism of chemical reactions, first of all, low-temperature solid phase reactions. The application of the emission
Mössbauer spectroscopy is also discussed for analytical purposes.
