The Power List 2017

Peter Griffiths

Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, University of Idaho, USA.

Most important lesson
Friendship and collaboration with other scientists in my field is far more important than cut-throat competition.

My heroes of spectroscopy
Foil Miller, Professor Emeritus of the University of Pittsburgh, who passed away this year at the age of 100, was a good experimental spectroscopist and an amazing teacher of spectroscopy. In research, I have always admired the accomplishments of Bruce Chase, now at the University of Delaware. Bruce has a more in-depth understanding of the theory and practice of vibrational spectroscopy than anyone else I know. The other attribute that I admire in Bruce is that he always seems to have fun in what he does, whether in or out of the lab.

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.
