This review presents the evolution of recent flow-based analytical systems, characterized by the use of arrays of sensors as a detection scheme. For the proper processing of the complex responses generated, the systems require the use of advanced chemometric treatment, in which received the term "electronic tongue". Applications employing the flow injection analysis (FIA) and sequential injection analysis (SIA) are described. Chronologically, the progresses made by different research groups are shown, emphasizing their final applications in real problem solving. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
