Special Issue "Chromatographic Techniques for Food and Environmental Samples"
A special issue of Separations (ISSN 2297-8739).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2018)
During last few decades, massive industrial and agricultural development has been accompanied by the release of a great variety of contaminants to the environment. Such compounds, depending on their physicochemical properties, might be incorporated into the food chain, which represents an important public concern. Accordingly, authorities have established restrictions to protect our environment from potential harmful substances. It has made the development of analytical methodologies, mainly based on chromatographic techniques, able to detect and determine a wide variety of compounds at very low concentration levels, in both food and environmental samples, in a reliable and accurate manner, necessary.
We would like to invite colleagues to contribute with original research articles and reviews to the present Special Issue on the latest trends in chromatographic techniques for the analysis of contaminants in environmental and food samples, including recent advances in sample preparation.
