Environmental Applications

Dear ASMS Environmental Interest Group members,
We hope to see everyone at the next ASMS Conference in San Diego. Our workshop is scheduled on Tuesday, June 5th  5:45-7:00 pm, in Room 9. 
This year’s workshop centers on:
       1. New and miniaturized sample preparation techniques.
       2. New separation approaches, including stationary phases and comprehensive chromatography for improving MS sensitivity and selectivity.
Three members of the environmental mass spectrometry community will informally present a few slides to generate discussion within the interest group.  Our speakers for this year are:
Janusz Pawliszyn, Canada Research Chair, Dept. of Chemistry, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada:
“Direct hyphenation of SPME with MS for on-side determinations”
Sherri Turnipseed, Research Chemist, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (Animal Drugs Research Center), Denver, CO :
“Advances and challenges in sample preparation for the analysis of veterinary drug residues”
Gerard Hopfgartner, Head of Life Sciences Mass Spectrometry Group, Dept. of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry, University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland: 
“How can chromatography improve analyte mass spectrometric identification and quantification”
We hope to see you all there!

Thank you,
Environmental Interest Group Co-Chairs
Achille Cappiello, Imma Ferrer, and Andrew Ottens
