3rd International Symposium on Separations in Biosciences (SBS'03):
100 Years of Chromatography
13-18 May 2003, Moscow, Russia
> Back to Calendar
This symposium will commemorate the 100th anniversary of chromatography
as one of the most important discoveries in the history of science.
March 21, 1903 is a special date in the history of chromatography. On
that day, at a meeting of the Warsaw Society of Natural Scientists,
Mikhail Semenovich Tswett presented a lecture entitled "On a New Category
of Adsorption Phenomena and its Application in Biochemical Analysis".
Thus, chromatography was introduced by a 30-year-old Russian specialist
in botany, biochemistry, and physiology, and it went on to become the
premier separation technique of the 20th century. The list of 100 most
distinguished chemists of the past that was compiled recently by the
Federation of European Chemical Societies (FECS) includes Tswett's name
Vol 23, No. 1, pp. 7-11, 2001). It is no exaggeration that the contribution
of chromatography to the successful development of biosciences and chemistry
just cannot be overestimated.
The scientific program will cover all aspects of modern liquid and
gas chromatography, as well as electromigration techniques. The program
will include a few invited lectures giving an overview of major achievements
and modern trends of the principal branches of chromatography in a historical
perspective, keynote lectures on the state-of-the-art of basic chromatographic
techniques, oral presentations on novel chromatographic separation phenomena,
and poster presentations of recent experimental findings. Special emphasis
will be given to achievements and applications of chromatography in
the natural sciences.
