Thermo Fisher Scientific is sponsoring the 15th Desty Memorial Lecture for Innovation in Separation Science, which will take place at the Royal Institution of Great Britain on the 6th October 2010. The theme for this year is ‘Innovation in Chromatography’.

As a distinguished scientist and inventor, Denis Henry Desty could transform his visions into reality by solving challenging problems in a practical and creative manner. During a distinguished career in research chemistry that spanned 33 years, he devised practical techniques for analytical hydrocarbon separations, combustion, gas flares, the treatment of oil spills, and a variety of applications in capillary gas chromatography. In commemoration of his work, Tony Edge, technical manager, Chromatography Consumables and Speciality Products for Thermo Fisher Scientific will present the lecture ‘Seeing the Unseen in Sample Preparation’. At the event an award will be presented to a young scientist, judged to have demonstrated great innovation in separation science.
