The Power List 2017

Daniel W. Armstrong

Robert A. Welch Distinguished Professor, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Texas at Arlington, USA.

Proudest moment
It can be gratifying when you publish something that few seem to know or care about, and then a few years later it becomes “all the rage” and has major scientific impact; for example, chiral separations, ionic liquids in separations and MS, and D-amino acids in biological systems. However, I can say with certainty that I am proudest when my former students and postdocs do well in their careers.

Best advice I ever got
I received two pieces of “wisdom” from my PhD advisor. First, if you publish fast enough, you don’t have to worry about competition. Second, there are a lot of very bright people in this “business,” but only a few will actually matter.

Nominator comment: “Professor Armstrong is an exceptional supervisor and scientist, who constantly goes the extra mile for his students.”

The Magnificent Tens

The Magnificent Tens
After 2016’s celebration of women in analytical science, we return to the Top 100 for 2017.
But there’s a twist. This summer, we asked you to nominate scientists in ten categories – from the stars of separation science, to omics explorers, to the mentors training the next generation.
