Back to School for Pharmaceutical Analysis
Deeper consideration of individual analytical unit processes offers a more systematic approach to method development, ensuring that we don’t forget the basics in an increasingly sophisticated world.

Back in 1970, when I took my PhD in analytical chemistry at The Queen’s University of Belfast, the emphasis was primarily on “chemistry”. In particular, I was working on electrochemical methods of analysis for pharmaceutical compounds. I’ve spent my entire career either teaching analytical chemistry or conducting pharmaceutical analyses, travelling widely in Africa, Australia and Europe. I finally settled at the University of Ulster, where I am currently an active Emeritus Professor in the School of Pharmacy. Over the years, my interests have changed somewhat – I became more heavily involved in bioanalysis and moved towards mass spectrometry-based techniques – but despite these changes of direction, chemistry has always been at the center.
