The 2012 ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry Award for Young Investigators in Separation Science will be presented to Jared L. Anderson, professor of analytical chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at The University of Toledo (Toledo, Ohio), on Wednesday morning at Pittcon 2012.

Session 1510, Room 300

The 2012 ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry Award for Young Investigators in Separation Science will be presented to Jared L. Anderson, professor of analytical chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at The University of Toledo (Toledo, Ohio), on Wednesday morning at Pittcon 2012. The award will be presented by Susan V. Olesik, Ohio State University. The Analytical Chemistry Award for Young Investigators in Separation Science was instituted by the Subdivision of Chromatography and Separation Science, a subdivision of the Analytical Division of the American Chemical Society. It was established to recognize and encourage outstanding contributions to the field of separation science by a young chemist or chemical engineer who has earned his or her highest degree within ten years of January 1 of the year of the award.

A session of oral presentations will follow, with talks to be given by Anderson titled “Exploiting the Versatility of Ionic Liquids and Polymeric Ionic Liquids in Separation Science”; Apryll Stalcup (University of Cincinnati) titled “Separations as Intermolecular Interaction Amplifiers”; Janusz Pawliszyn (University of Waterloo) on new developments in SPME and related techniques, such as cold fiber SPME, thin film SPME, needle trap, membrane extraction with sorbent interface and high throughput 96 well extractions coupled to LC; Daniel W. Armstrong (University of Texas at Arlington) on macrocyclic chiral selectors and the unique structure of CF6; and Jon R. Kirchhoff (University of Toledo) titled “Combining Sensors with Separations for Enhanced Selectivity”.

Anderson joined The University of Toledo as an assistant professor in August 2005. He was promoted to associate professor in 2009 and to the rank of full professor in 2011. Anderson obtained a B.S. in chemistry at South Dakota State University in 2000 followed by his PhD in analytical chemistry under the supervision of Daniel W. Armstrong at Iowa State University in 2005. His research interests include the synthesis of new classes of ionic liquids and materials derived from polymeric ionic liquids, the use of ionic liquids as catalytic solvents, and the use of ionic liquids in all aspects of separation science including analytical extractions, purification, and chromatography.

Anderson won LCGC’s Emerging Leader in Chromatography award in 2010 and became a member of their Editorial Advisory Board in 2012.
