Rounding out the first part of the program, Lloyd Snyder will give a presentation on the hydrogen-bond basicity of reversed-phase columns.

After receiving the Emerging Leader Award, West will discuss “The New Face of Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC): Why Analysts Should Take Another Look.” Terry Berger of SFC Solutions will then discuss why more academic researchers and teachers are needed in SFC.
