The Coming of Age of 2D-LC

Though the concept has been around since the 1970s, it’s only recently that 2D-LC has become a realistic prospect for more routine applications. Ahead of HPLC 2019 in Milan, we gathered seven gurus to discuss the challenges and promise of delving into the second dimension. A round-table discussion is presented below – but you can also read the viewpoints of Isabelle François, Monika Dittmann, and Stephan Buckenmaier in A Turning Tide and Change on the Horizon.

About the Authors

Peter Schoenmakers

Peter is education director COAST; editor, Journal of Chromatography A; and, professor, Analytical Chemistry/Forensic Science, van't Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He obtained a masters in chemical engineering in 1977 and PhD in 1981, which included a research project on reversed-phase liquid chromatography. After fulfilling his military service, he had a career in industrial R&D, first at Philips and subsequently at Shell. He has been a fulltime professor since 2002 and now holds the chair of Analytical Chemistry, including its applications in Forensic Science. “My research interests include analytical separations (chromatography and mass spectrometry) and their applications to large molecules. A specific focus in recent years has been on the theory and application of comprehensive two-dimensional liquid chromatography.” Peter is active in the organization of several successful symposium series. He is a member of the permanent scientific committee of the HPLC series of conferences and chairman of the symposia on the Separation and Characterization of Natural and Synthetic Macromolecules (SCM) Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography (HTC) and HPLC2013 in Amsterdam. He has been editor of the Journal of Chromatography A since 2003.
