AbstractThe Analytical Challenge, a series of puzzles to entertain and challenge the readers of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry journal is presented. This special ABC feature has established itself as a truly unique quiz series, with a new scientific puzzle published every other month. Readers can access the complete collection of published problems, with their solutions, on the Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry homepage at its website. In this Jeopardy-style trivial pursuit readers are invited to decipher eight clues, each referring to a radioactive element. It is, therefore, no surprise that after a long period of naming elements after countries, ancient gods, and planets, the first choice in the twentieth century to name an element after a person went to Marie Curie and her husband Pierre. The legacy of the Curies is arguably their research on radioactivity.
