Plenary Lecture

Think Big but Design Small, a Path to Modern Analytical ChemistryJanusz Pawliszyn, University of Waterloo, Department of Chemistry, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, N2L 3G1 The presentation summarises my involvement in different areas of Analytical Chemistry leading to miniaturized portable devices and on-side applications.  My early work as new faculty in 1980’s on application of technologies developed at that time for communication industry including LEDs, laser diodes, imaging semiconductor arrays and optical fibers are discussed.  This work led to construction of different

In Memoriam: Richard Saferstein, Ph.D

It is with great fondness that we remember Richard Saferstein, Ph.D, who passed away on July 28, 2017. Dr. Saferstein served as President of EAS in 1989 and presided over the move from NY to NJ.

While we valued the relationships we had built with the staff at the hotels and exhibit center, we thought that the GSEC was no longer an adequate space for our exposition.   Large exhibits

2017 EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Fields of Analytical Chemistry

The primary focus of Professor Pawliszyn’s research program is the design of highly automated and integrated instrumentation for the isolation of analytes from complex matrices and the subsequent separation, identification and determination of these species.  The primary separation tools used by his group are gas chromatography, liquid chromatography and capillary electrophoresis coupled to a variety of detection systems, including a range of mass spectrometry techniques. Currently his research is focusing on elimination of organic solvents from the sample preparation step
