The Power List 2014

Caroline West

Associate Professor, Institute of Organic and Analytical Chemistry, University of Orléans/CNRS, Orléans, France.

Calling: “As a student, I was interested in forensics – a job that had the attraction of mystery to me. I only knew that analytical chemistry was one way to get there.”

Regret: “Probably not. I took the opportunities that offered themselves.”

: “Chromatography with carbon dioxide-based mobile phases (SFC) is still keeping me very busy. There is so much more to learn!”

Hope: “I like exploring the frontiers, particularly those that I am being told are impassable. Thus the polarity limits of SFC, especially towards biomolecules, are of interest to me.”

Advice: “First: hard work! Second: forget about copy & paste – find your own way.”

Top 40 Under 40

In 2013, we compiled a list of the Top 100 most influential analytical scientists – an endeavor that received a significant amount of attention and, it’s fair to say, caused more than a little controversy. Our 2014 Top 40 Under 40 list almost halves the average age of the celebrated individuals, with many of them born in the same year as the iconic Sex Pistols cover – 1977.
