In early 2014, Agilent Technologies approached us with a clear objective: to show how simple and robust two-dimensional liquid chromatography has become. Here, we present the results from our fruitful collaboration.

Over the course of the last six months, we’ve had the great pleasure of working with some of biggest names in the field, covering key application areas, such as biopharmaceuticals and traditional chinese medicine analysis, as we went. In this special compendium, the RIC’s Pat Sandra and Gerd Vanhoenacker begin with “Embracing the Second Dimension”, which provides essential background theory and introduces 2D-LC as the answer to the demand for higher peak capacity in complex samples. “The New 2D-LC Kids on the Block”, meanwhile, features two scientists who have more recently embraced the second dimension, openly asking them about their experiences. Other authors include Genentech’s Cadapakam J. Venkatramani and Oliver Schmitz from the University Duisberg-Essen.
To really send the message home, a further two authors – Koen Sandra and Dwight Stoll – recently delivered a webinar to delve even deeper into certain aspects of practical 2D-LC and answered your questions.

Both Agilent and The Analytical Scientist consider this compendium to be the beginning of the discussion on 2D-LC – not the end. We look forward to receiving your questions and feedback – please feel free to use the comment section below.
