The Power List 2014

Lucie Novakova

Associate Professor, Department of Analytical Chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, Charles University, Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic.

Calling: “My personality unifies two opposing features: a precise analyst and a dreamer in one. This was probably why I got strongly fascinated with chromatographic techniques and become a scientist.”

Regret: “No. Being involved in separation science allows me to participate in interesting projects, learning new things and meeting great people.”

Emphasis: “Separation techniques including UHPLC and UHPSFC and their coupling with mass spectrometry. Sample preparation approaches in bioanalysis and other fields.”

: “I am proud of the book “Modern HPLC separation in theory and practice” written in Czech with my colleague M. Dousa.”

: Davy Guillarme and David V. McCalley

Hope: “Get rid of matrix effects and do sample preparation quickly is my ‘science-fiction’ hope – becoming an expert in the field of high resolution mass spectrometry and ion mobility MS might be more realistic.”

Prediction: “SFC will be a game-changer; we’re already seeing new instrumental platforms and stationary phases. Other instrumental development will follow, chiral stationary phases with smaller particles are already on the way…

Advice: “Have patience and enthusiasm”

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.
