The Power List 2013

Henry B. Hass Distinguished Professor, Analytical Chemistry
Purdue University, Indiana, USA

Snapshot: “The subject for which I am being recognized has been decades in the making and many labs and individuals have contributed. I feel fortunate to have been part of this long-running campaign and to have experienced mass spectrometry when it was more a game with expensive toys and lots of promise than a real science.

“All my work goes back to simplifying the process of complex mixture analysis – this includes the MS/MS experiments on plant material and biofluids that we did in the mid-1970s and the recent ambient ionization experiments and the attempts to do on-site measurements by mass spectrometry. The latter requires a miniature mass spectrometer.”
