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

2017 American Microchemical Society Benedetti Pichler Award

Somenath Mitra is a Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Environmental Science and the Exec. Director Otto York Center for Environmental Engineering and Science at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).   He received his BS in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (Kharagpur, India), MS in Environmental Engineering and PHD in Analytical Chemistry from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, IL in 1988. He was a National Research Council Fellow at US EPA, Research Triangle Park from 1988 to 1991 before joining

2017 New York Section of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy Gold Medal Award:

Professor Van Duyne discovered surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), invented nanosphere lithography (NSL), and developed ultrasensitive nanosensors based on localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) spectroscopy. His research interests include SERS, LSPR spectroscopy, plasmonics, nanoscale biosensors, atomic layer deposition (ALD), ultra-high vacuum tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (UHV-TERS), electrochemical tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (EC-TERS) and surface-enhanced femtosecond stimulated Raman spectroscopy (SE-FSRS). He has been elected a Fellow/Member of the National Academy of Sciences, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), American

2017 EAS Young Investigator Award

Dwight Stoll did his undergraduate work at Minnesota State University, Mankato, receiving B.S. degrees in plant biology and biochemistry in 1999 and 2001.  Upon graduation in 1999 he took a job in industry as a research technician with ZirChrom Separations, Inc.  At ZirChrom he quickly learned about the liquid chromatography market, and in fact became quite interested in the role of separation science in the development of new analytical methodologies for use in other disciplines such as biology.  In 2000

Barry K. Lavine is a Professor of Chemistry at Oklahoma State University where he both teaches and performs research in the area of analytical chemistry.  Lavine’s research interests encompass many aspects of chemometrics including pattern recognition, multivariate curve resolution, and multivariate calibration using genetic algorithms and other evolutionary techniques. Lavine graduated with his PhD in Analytical Chemistry from Pennsylvania State University in 1986.  He has published approximately 100 research papers, 20 book chapters, 16 review articles and has edited 3

2017 EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in Mass Spectrometry

Dr. Scott A. McLuckey earned his B.S. in chemistry from Westminster College in 1978 and his Ph.D. degree in 1982 from Purdue University in Analytical Chemistry.  Directly following graduation from Purdue, he spent one year as a visiting scientist at the FOM Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics in Amsterdam.  In late 1983, he joined the Analytical Chemistry Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory as a Eugene P. Wigner Fellow.   In January, 1990 he was named Head of the Analytical
