Attracting talent… Make the relevance of research and a (potential) subsequent application of an analytical approach or technology transparent and comprehensible to the talented scientists – this is vital for motivating such individuals to commit to the field.

Most exciting development or trend? A particularly fascinating field of research in analytical chemistry has become the investigations into exposomics. Here, various facets combine to paint an extremely complex picture, and joint efforts of all analytical science sections are required to support understanding and, eventually, influencing future directions. 

Biggest challenge facing the field? In the light of the complexity of cause-and-effect questions, a major challenge appears to be the deducing of casualties from analytical data. Interdisciplinarity seems to be of even greater importance now than ever before.

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.
