Kevin A. Schug

Kevin A. Schug is an Associate Professor and Shimadzu Distinguished Professor of Analytical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at The University of Texas (UT) at Arlington. He joined the faculty at UT Arlington in 2005 after completing a Ph.D. in Chemistry at Virginia Tech under the direction of Prof. Harold M. McNair and a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Vienna under Prof. Wolfgang Lindner. Research in the Schug group spans fundamental and applied areas of separation science and mass spectrometry. Schug was named the LCGC Emerging Leader in Chromatography in 2009, and most recently has been named the 2012 American Chemical Society Division of Analytical Chemistry Young Investigator in Separation Science awardee.

The LCGC Blog: From Reversed Phase to HILIC and Back Again: Recent Evolutions in HPLC and UHPLC Stationary Phases
August 14, 2014

When you begin to now combine advances in superficially porous media to achieve high efficiency with novel and predictable new stationary phases to achieve high selectivity, then it sounds like the evolution of HPLC and UHPLC phases over the past decade or more has brought some exciting new possibilities.

The LCGC Blog: Unanticipated Benefits of Keyword Searching the Scientific Literature
July 10, 2014

If you ask scientists, it does not take long before you realize that there is quite a bit of variety in the different search engines that they prefer.

The LCGC Blog: A Report from Riva del Garda: The Current State of the Art of Gas Chromatography
June 19, 2014

The International Symposium on Capillary Chromatography (ISCC) and GCxGC Symposium combined conference provides an excellent combination of high impact, cutting edge science, and a great social program in an interesting venue. Kevin Schug shares his thoughts about innovations in gas chromatography presented at this year's conference in Riva del Garda, Italy.

The LCGC Blog: Basics, Applications, and Innovations in Solid-Phase Extraction
May 8, 2014

Solid-phase extraction (SPE) is a versatile and reliable technique that is often used for sample cleanup and concentration. Kevin Schug offers some insight about SPE basics and achieving successful extractions.

The LCGC Blog: My Own March Madness - Four Dissertations, Analytical Chemistry, and Chemical Education
April 10, 2014

Graduate students seeking doctoral degrees in chemistry require guidance and help in completing their dissertations. In the April installment of The LCGC Blog, Kevin Schug discusses this process and the efforts of four of his students.

The LCGC Blog: A View of Separation Science Research at a Czech Conference
March 13, 2014

The United States woefully underfunds international collaborations with the Czech Republic. Yet, it is a country that produces excellent scientists who are distinctly passionate about science, and who have been educated to demonstrate not only a strong mastery of chemistry basics, but also superb knowledge of the integration of high-level mathematics and computer programming skills into their science. One need not look very far in the separation science and mass spectrometry (MS) fields in the United States to find eminent leaders with roots in the Czech Republic.

The LCGC Blog: What Is the Optimal Training to Provide to Students Interested in a Career in Industry?
February 13, 2014

Analytical chemists entering the work force are not always ready to face the challenges of private industry. Kevin Schug discusses how best to prepare students for the next stage of their careers.

The LCGC Blog: Flow Injection Analysis Can Be Used to Create Temporal Compositional Analyte Gradients for Mass Spectrometry-Based Quantitative Analysis
December 12, 2013

Flow injection analysis (FIA) is a powerful technique for quantitative analysis, especially in conjunction with mass spectrometry (MS) detection. Kevin Schug discusses how FIA can be combined with MS using electrospray ionization and describes how the technique can be used for analytes such as binding constant determination, multipoint instrument response calibrations, and removing the dependence of measured analyze concentrations on matrix effects.
