Pittcon 2009 has brought us back to the windy city, where the technical sessions are sure to be anything but breezy. Sunday afternoon’s session titled, “New Stationary Phases for GC and LC,” is a prime example of a session that was filled with new information for separation scientists to enjoy.

The session began with “Hybrid Mid Polarity Siloxane Stationary Phase Polymers for Next Generation High Performance Capillary GC Columns,” presented by Jack Cochran of Restek Corporation, along with Gary Stidsen, Roy Lautamo, Shawn Reese, Jaap de Zeeuw, Jason Thomas, and Jari Snider.

Following that 20-minute presentation was Allen J. Britten from Cape Breton University and Krishnat P. Naikwadi presenting their findings on “Isomer Specific and High Temperature New Nano Stationary Phase GC Capillary Columns for Fast GC and GC/MS Analysis.”

Third in this session was a presentation titled “LC/MS of Metabolites using a Silica Hydride-Based Stationary Phase.” Joseph Pesek, of San Jose State University, and Maria Matyska presented.

Rounding out this session was Abby Jo Jackson, from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, along with Hai Xuan, and David S. Hage presenting their findings on “Entrapment of Proteins in Polysaccharide-Capped Hydrazie-Activated Silica Supports for High Performance Affinity.” All-in-all it was a very informative session to start out was is sure to be a great week in Chicago.
