April 2021 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

The future of plastics, animal models, and life without Riva: this month’s features tackle some of the biggest and boldest topics in our field. Elsewhere in the issue, Philippe-Schmitt Kopplin and Stefan Pieczonka discuss their work unmasking the dark metabolome in beer, Victoria Samanidou asks “do all analytical chemists speak the same language?” and Susan Richardson discusses her work in water analysis – as well as becoming President of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry.
