The Pittsburgh Conference Achievement Award

March 1, 2016

The 2016 Pittsburgh Conference Achievement Award will be presented to Jared L. Anderson, who is a Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Iowa State University, on Monday morning at Pittcon 2016. The award will be presented by Elias S. Absey, the chair of the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP). The Pittsburgh Conference Achievement Award is presented annually by the SACP at Pittcon to recognize individuals for outstanding achievements in the fields of analytical chemistry or applied spectroscopy within 10 years after completion of their PhD work.

Session 230 Room B314, 8:30 a.m.   The 2016 Pittsburgh Conference Achievement Award will be presented to Jared L. Anderson, who is a Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Iowa State University, on Monday morning at Pittcon 2016. The award will be presented by Elias S. Absey, the chair of the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP). The Pittsburgh Conference Achievement Award is presented annually by the SACP at Pittcon to recognize individuals for outstanding achievements in the fields of analytical chemistry or applied spectroscopy within 10 years after completion of their PhD work.    A session of oral presentations will follow the award presentation, with talks to be given by Anderson on exploiting ionic liquids, magnetic ionic liquids, and polymeric ionic liquids in sample preparation using multidimensional gas chromatography (GC), Daniel W. Armstrong (University of Texas at Arlington) on the impact and evolution of high efficiency chiral and achiral separations, and Verónica Pino (University of La Laguna) on the use of metal-organic frameworks in sample preparation analytical schemes as well as an overview of their performance in solid-phase extraction (SPE). After a brief recess, Apryll M. Stalcup (Dublin City University) will give a talk on achiral linear solvation energy relationship (LSER) investigations of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) retention on Cinchona alkaloid-based chiral stationary phases. Jon R. Kirchhoff (University of Toledo) will close out the session with a talk on the applications of conductive ionic liquids in chemical analysis.    Anderson’s research focuses on the development of stationary phases for multidimensional GC, alternative approaches in sample preparation, particularly in nucleic acid extraction, and developing analytical tools for trace analysis within active pharmaceutical ingredients. He was also the recipient of the 2010 LCGC Emerging Leader in Chromatography award and is on LCGC North America’s editorial advisory board.
