To the members of LCGC's readership, the science behind the headlines is always apparent. Separation science in general, and chromatography in particular, find application in nearly every facet of everyday life, from pharmaceutical analysis to the biomedical field to environmental testing, and this Application Notebook is a tribute to just how thoroughly separation science permeates our daily lives.

To the members of LCGC's readership, the science behind the headlines is always apparent. Separation science in general, and chromatography in particular, find application in nearly every facet of everyday life, from pharmaceutical analysis to the biomedical field to environmental testing, and this Application Notebook is a tribute to just how thoroughly separation science permeates our daily lives.

However, as this, the September edition of The Application Notebook, reaches LCGC's readership, separation science has come to the forefront of the mass media like few other times before. With the exception of PED testing and the baby formula/pet food scares of recent years, perhaps no incident has brought the application of chromatography to the forefront of the world's consciousness like the Gulf Oil Spill. With the combined threats of food and air contamination being addressed with various chromatographic techniques, this tragic occurrence has brought chromatography into mainstream news articles and television stories once again.

Here at LCGC, we believe this demonstrates the need for a supplement such as this one more than ever. As scientists grapple with life-affecting real world crises such as this one, with potential consequences as serious as they have ever been, having a one-of-a-kind resource at your fingertips becomes critical. "Solutions for separation scientists" is the LCGC motto, and a dire occasion such as this one illustrates how important it is to have the latest cutting-edge applications research on-hand in the lab.

We hope you find this issue useful and informative, and as always, feel free to contact us at the addresses below or at the phone numbers listed in the masthead with your feedback.

It is always welcome.
