Advances in Column Technology I

Meeting Reports

Tuesday morning at HPLC 2008 will feature a session on "Advances in Column Technology I" in Harborside Ballroom C.

The session, chaired by W. John Lough from the University of Sunderland, includes presentations from an LCGC columnist and an author from a recent supplement – both of whom were honored on Monday at HPLC 2008.

Ron Majors will get things going with the first presentation, entitled "HPLC Column Technology: Smaller and Faster." Majors, from Agilent Technologies, is a monthly column contributor to LCGC and received the prestigious A.J.P. Martin award during the plenary session on Monday morning.

Majors also helped to assemble a special supplement to LCGC, "Recent Developments in LC Column Technology," which is available at the conference.

To pick up a copy of the supplement, or any other recent issue of LCGC, please stop by booth 115.

David McCalley also will be presenting during the Advances in Column Technology session. McCalley, from the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK, will speak on the "Evaluation of the Properties of a Superficially Porous Silica Stationary Phase in Hydrophilic Interaction Chromatography."

He also was honored at the plenary session on Monday morning, receiving the Silver Jubilee Award. McCalley's article in the "Recent Developments in LC Column Technology" supplement also deals with hydrophilic interaction chromatography.

The HPLC conference was originated in 1973 with the idea of highlighting advances in the field of liquid-phase separations. The meetings alternate between Europe and the United States with even years being in the US.
