Professor & Head of Analytical Chemistry, University of Florida, USA.
The future: When I started at the University of Florida some 40 years ago, MS was not a widely accepted technique. Organic chemists used it to confirm they had synthesized the correct compound, natural product chemists used it to find novel compounds in a given organism, and physicists and physical chemists used it for fundamentals. Today, MS may well be the dominant technique in our field, and there’s no indication it’s slowing down!
