The Power List 2014

Sebastiaan Eeltink

Associate Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium.

Calling: “I was lucky to meet the right people during my studies who provided me not only good advice but also gave me the opportunity to conduct a PhD study and post-doctoral research.”
Regret: “I like what I am doing, so I would probably choose a career in chemistry again. But I also studied music at the conservatory – a combination of the two would be ideal!”

Emphasis: “My research aims at the design, development, and characterization of novel materials (including nanostructured monoliths and coatings in capillaries and microfluidic chips) and separation strategies for liquid chromatography.”
Respect: James Jorgenson and Peter Schoenmakers
Hope: “Establish a dynamic research team and try to break new ground.”
Prediction: “Spatial three-dimensional chromatography: this is a new concept in which components are separated in the space domain with each peak being characterized by its X, Y, Z coordinates in the separation body. The technology potentially provides unparalleled performance in a short analysis time.”
Advice: “Try to set-up good collaborations and share knowledge.”

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.
