From the Editor
John Dolan’s final LCGC column will appear in October. We are sad to see him go! Fortunately, we have just the person to follow in his footsteps: Dwight Stoll.
Column Watch
This interactive classification map is a powerful tool for gaining useful knowledge about the properties of bonded LC stationary phases.
LC Troubleshooting
Proper filtering is important to protect LC system components and deliver high quality analytical results. In some cases, however, it makes sense to deviate from best practices.
History of Chromatography
Peter Myers on the past, present, and future of stationary phases
The Essentials
The most prominent advantage of using nitrogen as a carrier gas is that it is the most efficient one when used at its optimum linear velocity.
Peer-Reviewed Article
There is increasing demand to analyze samples with a wide range of polarities, in fields such as environmental analysis and proteomics.
Special Features
Discovering and identifying molecular biomarkers in large liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC–MS) data sets requires automation without loss of accuracy. Benjamin Van Mooy from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution reveals a lipidomics strategy using LOBSTAHS to identify lipid, oxidized lipid, and oxylipin biomarkers in high mass accuracy high performance (HP) LC–MS data.
We explore the careers and achievements of the winners of LCGC’s 10th annual awards: Pat Sandra and Deirdre Cabooter.
