Biggest challenge? Similar to all other sciences, our field risks being drawn into this pit fight where the focus is not on the quality of our methods but the quantity of meaningless numbers. If I look at multidimensional LC specifically, I am baffled by the increasing number of publications that proudly report complicated systems where the number of dimensions must go ever higher. As a community, we have developed amazingly powerful separation systems combining LC and MS. We ought to learn how to use them more effectively and robustly rather than solving the analytical problem by complicating it further. Perhaps then, after having been here for decades, 2D-LC will find its way into more environments.
