April 2022 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

As detection limits continue to push boundaries and penalties become increasingly severe, is the system becoming unfair to athletes? We explore the explosive issue of sports doping in our cover feature. Elsewhere, Victoria Samanidou argues we all have a role to play in maintaining standards in citation ethics; and Mark Barrow explains how the development of new methods to unravel the most complex mixture of all – petroleum – bears fruit in many other applications areas. We also continue with our new Core Topics – Mass Spectrometry, Chromatography, Spectroscopy and (Bio)Pharma – with research highlights, short opinion pieces and interviews. And finally, we Sit Down With “FPOP Star” Lisa Jones.
