The Power List 2017

Luigi Mondello

Full Professor of Analytical Chemistry, Chemical, Biological, Pharmaceutical and Environmental Sciences Department, University of Messina, Italy.

From a young age, I was strongly drawn to chemistry and physics, and relished tackling challenges and practical problems. Today I am the same guy, and the same passion is my driving force.

Most exciting current project
Research in my lab is mainly focused on the use of multidimensional and MS-hyphenated chromatography, prototype instrumentation and dedicated software. One of the most recent advances is the construction of a nano-LC system coupled to EI-MS detection, extending the advantages of GC-MS to typical LC-amenable compounds. It combines the benefits of miniaturized analytical instruments with the unique features of EI-MS spectra for molecule fingerprinting.

Hero of separation science
The person whose talent and willingness have most inspired me is Pat Sandra. Since the beginning of my scientific career, I have always looked up to his stellar achievements in the field of separation science, and regarded him as an idol – his work represents the most a scientist could hope for.

Nominator comment: "A pioneer in the field of multidimensional chromatography.

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.
