The Tenth International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography and Chromatographic Analysers (HTC-10) will be held in Bruges, Belgium, from 30 January to 1 February. The event commemorates 20 years of dissemination of scientific knowledge in the field.

The Tenth International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography and Chromatographic Analysers (HTC-10) will be held in Bruges, Belgium, from 30 January to 1 February. The event commemorates 20 years of dissemination of scientific knowledge in the field.

HTC-10 will again cover all the fundamental aspects, instrumental developments and applications of the various hyphenated chromatographic techniques (e.g., coupling of GC or LC to LC, GC and SFC/SFE; MS, FTIR, AED and other techniques coupled with GC, HPLC, SFC, CZE, CEC and FFF; PTV–GC–MS; on-line air traps-, purge- and trap, extractorsand GPC–GC (or LC); LC to NMR, Raman, FIA–DAD, light scattering; ITP–MS etc.). Emphasis will also be placed on sample introduction, miniaturization, micro-fabricate analytical devices and on the design of hyphenated, on-line and at-line chromatographic analysers.

ExTech-10 is a symposium series highlighting new extraction technologies for chemical and biochemical analysis in laboratory and on-site settings. The general focus is on solvent free sample preparation including methods for rapid and selective enrichment prior to analysis and micro-sample preparation. Major emphasis will be placed on the fundamental understanding of extraction processes that result in greater selectivity and efficiency in method development, and a rationalization of method selection for specific applications. On-site environmental methods and biomedical applications will be covered. The 2008 edition will focus especially on passive sampling methods, use of molecular imprinted polymers, biologically modified sorbents, novel coatings and sorbent materials.

Additionally, on Wednesday 30 January, a special one day conference on Public Safety and Security emphasizing the Hyphenated Chromatographic approach will be held. On this day, both the sample preparation problems and the analytical methodologies developed for the continuing public protection will be discussed. This symposium will highlight new sampling, sample-preparation, derivatization, sample-introduction and hyphenated chromatographic techniques for forensic research and for the detection and analysis of chemical and biological warfare agents and their degradation products.

From Wednesday 30 January until Friday 1 February, there will also be a large integrated exhibition of scientific posters and commercial instrumentation, consumables and services.
