Tea and electrochemistry with Jean-Pierre Chervet at ISC2014 in Salzburg.
In the third episode from Salzburg, Rich invites Jean-Pierre Chervet for tea to discuss life after LC Packings – in particular, his focus on electrochemistry (EC) with LC-MS. Ten years ago, Uwe Karst described the coupling of electrochemistry and mass spectrometry as a “great combination”. Today, Jean-Pierre believes electrochemistry is really coming into its own. “All the headaches you had in early grad school with electrochemistry suddenly disappeared because you don’t do detection – just REDOX reactions.” Mimicking drug metabolism is still a key application area for EC, but Jean-Pierre is starting to see other exciting areas open up as well, including ‘omics’ applications and extended use in pharmaceutical stability testing, as pioneered by Pfizer.

Rich Whitworth completed his studies in medical biochemistry at the University of Leicester, UK, in 1998. To cut a long story short, he escaped to Tokyo to spend five years working for the largest English language publisher in Japan. "Carving out a career in the megalopolis that is Tokyo changed my outlook forever. When seeing life through such a kaleidoscopic lens, it's hard not to get truly caught up in the moment." On returning to the UK, after a few false starts with grey, corporate publishers, Rich was snapped up by Texere Publishing, where he spearheaded the editorial development of The Analytical Scientist. "I feel honored to be part of the close-knit team that forged The Analytical Scientist – we've created a very fresh and forward-thinking publication." Rich is now also Content Director of Texere Publishing, the company behind The Analytical Scientist.
