Monday’s program begins at 10:00 a.m. with a session on Gas Chromatography. "GC Connections" columnist John Hinshaw will discuss the latest developments in High Speed GC and the advantages and concerns of using hydrogen as a carrier gas. Dan Armstrong, from the University of Texas at Arlington, will then be interviewed on 2D GC and Ionic Liquids. Dan is a pioneer in this field and an active member of LCGC’s editorial advisory board. He will reveal how the combination of 2D GC and ionic stationary phases could usher a new era in environmental, forensic, and metabolomic analysis using GC.

The afternoon session on HPLC/UHPLC kicks off with a talk by Merlin Bicking, from ACCTA Inc., on 2D/Fast LC. Merlin is president of this training and consultancy company and regularly contributes to the analytical literature. He will discuss practical aspects of implementing fast LC and UHPLC systems based on his experience of implementing these systems in different industries across the US. Peter Carr, from the University of Minnesota, will then discuss Fast GC. Carr is a leading luminary in the world of separation science and is also a member of LCGC’s editorial board. He leads a succesful team of researchers at the Carr Group, which specialises in developing novel stationary phases for HPLC and ultra fast high temperature liquid chromatography. The session closes with a talk by Apryl Stalcup, from the University of Cincinnati, enticingly entitled, "HPLC: Beyond Reverse and Normal phase."
