Event news summary

24th International Ion Chromatography Symposium (IICS 2012)

The 24th International Ion Chromatography Symposium (IICS 2012) will take place at Andel's Hotel, Berlin, Germany, on the 17–20 September 2012.

The symposim will be chaired by Andreas Seubert from the University of Marburg, Marburg, Germany, and co-chaired by Charles Lucy from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.

Ions (and ionic interactions) obviously play an important role in chemistry and ion chromatography is an important technique in the world of separation science. Ion chromatography is capable of analysing large biomolecules as well as small- and medium-sized ions.

The IICS 2012 symposium is specifically focuses on the separation and analysis of ions primarily by ion chromatography, but also other techniques, including capillary electrophoresis and other ion-related analytical techniques from electrochemistry and spectroscopy are featured.

IICS 2012 will provide an overview on actual and upcoming analytical applications from various fields of ion analysis, combined with the latest fundamental developments around new columns, detectors and complete analytical systems. IICS will provide an excellent venue to share your application or your analytical problem related to ion analysis.

Greg Dicinoski from ACROSS, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia, will deliver a short course called an Introduction to Modern Ion Chromatography which will keep everyone up to speed on the history and advances of this exciting technique on the opening day of the symposium. This will then be followed by the welcome reception.

There will be a plenary lecture on Electrodialytic Devices in Chromatography: Past, Present and a Cloudy Crystal Ball by Purnendu Dasgupta, University of Texas at Arlington, Arlington, Texas, USA, and two IICS Award Presentions: Applying Host-guest Chemistry to Ion Chromatography by John Lamb from Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, USA, and Simple andConvenient Water Quality Monitoring by Ion-exclusion Chromatography with Multifunctional Separation Mechanism by Kazuhiko Tanaka from Hiroshima University, Higashi-hiroshima, Japan.

Sessions at IICS 2012 include Multidimensional Ion Chromatography; Capillary Ion Chromatography; Smart Materials; Young Scientist Session; Water Analysis Session; Microscale Separations; Food Analysis/Carbohydrate Analysis; Combustion Ion Chromatography, Detection Techniques; Pharmaceutical Analysis; Forensic Analysis; IC–MS; Column Technology and a session on Fundamentals.

There will be posters and networking sessions throughout the event giving attendees the opportunity to meet with their peers and leading luminaries from the world of ion chromatography.
