January 2019 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

As we launch into 2019, we asked a panel of scientists from our Top Under 40 Power List to take a moment to reflect on the best research papers of last year, in our Landmark Literature feature. Also in this issue, we have the case for International Chromatography Day, better simulations to predict retention times, how to use music in teaching, Raman wizard Ian Lewis, microplastics, polar bears and a Pittcon preview. Enjoy!
