5.1: The Law of Conservation of Matter
Furthermore, environmental conditions all over the world have inflicted increasing damage or at least deterioration of surfaces meant to be created for eternity. By conventional techniques we are able to ameliorate most of the dangers, but new approaches of high technology must be explored to preserve the heritage of human civilization as well as art works of former generations. Since the very beginning of investigation, preservation, and conservation-restoration of our cultural heritage, chemistry has been playing an important role in documentation, studying ancient production of materials and art technology, understanding of degradation processes and present state of works of art, as well as developing and evaluating new materials and methods for interventions of both, movable and immovable art works.
In the last decades the booming developments in chemical science, especially in analytical, organic or environmental chemistry, but also in the fields of electronics and computer sciences has brought us new instruments and methods of great perfection, which present new horizons in the analysis, diagnosis and protection of art and cultural objects.

Chemistry for cultural heritage | Heritage Science | Full Text
In 46 oral and 71 poster presentations 7 topics focusing on new materials and methods, stability of traditional and modern materials, chemometrics, nano and bio-technology and chemical imaging in the field of art and cultural heritage were discussed. There were also more than 60 graduate students attending the conference.
The meeting opened with an address by representatives of the organizing and scientific committee: Prof. Eva Blimlinger, followed by remarks from the conference chair, Prof.
Chemical Science and Conservation
Manfred Schreiner. The scientific program started with the first session, opened by invited speaker, Prof. The presentations of this session clustered around several challenges: non-destructive investigation of materials and painting techniques, new combinations of analytical techniques for complementary material identification, to modelling of indoor environments and to better understand degradation effects.
