To make drugs and to serve their purpose, various chemical and instrumental methods were developed and in a regular intervals which are involved in the estimation of drugs. These pharmaceuticals would serve their intent only if they are free from impurities and are administered at appropriate amounts. These pharmaceuticals develop impurities at various stages of their development, transportation and storage which makes the pharmaceuticals risky to be administered thus they may be detected and quantified. For this analytical instrumentation techniques and methods play an important role. This review highlights a variety of analytical techniques for analysis of inorganic elements. The most commonly used techniques for the determination of inorganic elements is atomic spectroscopy the different branches of atomic absorption spectroscopy are (1) flame photometry or flame atomic emission spectrometry, (2) Atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS), (3) Inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES), (4) UV-visible    spectrophotometer.

Key Words: Inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry, Photoelectric flame photometry, Torch.
