Ronald E. Majors, a senior chemist at Agilent and LCGC's "Column Watch" and "Sample Preperation Perspectives" columnist, received the Chromatographic Society's 2007 Martin Gold Medal at HPLC 2008. The award, named after the Nobel Prize winner A.J.P. Martin, was presented by Professor W. John Lough, president of the Chromatographic Society of the United Kingdom.

Majors has contributed significantly to separation science research through the years, including his work in HPLC column technology, particle size studies, packing methodologies, and chemically bonded phases. He was the first to efficiently pack 5-μm particles into high performance columns and was responsible for the introduction of the first commercial microparticulate column.
