November 2016 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to the November issue! In Upfront we reveal a precolonial palimpsest, show how genomics (and teeth) help in the characterization of the Black Death, and remember the “father” of HPLC, Jack Kirkland. We also tackle multidimensional multi-polydispersity and ask if analytical chemists are having an existential crisis, while Luigi Mondello shares the success story behind the Messina Group. We Sit Down With legendary gas chromatographer Harold McNair, and he shares some entertaining tales about his key mentors in our Profession section.
