April 2018 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to our April issue of The Analytical Scientist and the second issue of The Spectroscopist! In Upfront, there’s analysis of mussel shells, a new handheld CE device, and we find out how conservators are keeping plastic fantastic. In our features, experts discuss the tech and applications of comprehensive 2D chromatography, and we look at teaching programs designed to inspire the next generation of analytical chemists. Finally, we sit down with comprehensive collaborator, Hand Gerd-Janssen.
