Heroes? Terry Berger is one of the major pioneers in supercritical fluid chromatography, I believe I knew most of his papers by heart when I was a PhD student. I was also (and am still) greatly inspired by the works and philosophy of Pat Sandra and Chris Welch. All of these guys have produced fundamental and essential research but also demonstrated applicability in the real-world, which is what I am trying to do.
Controversial opinion? SFC is not normal-phase. And another one: PSI is not an international unit. Sorry to my North American friends but pound is not international, inch is not international, and so PSI is definitely not international!
