Special Issue "Advances in LC Column Technology: Design, Characterization, and Application"
A special issue of Separations (ISSN 2297-8739).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 December 2018).
Liquid chromatography (LC) in its various modes has become a pivotal technique in the characterization of purity, identity, and potency of a broad range of molecular compounds. To address the analysis problems, as for example encountered in the chemical industry and in life-science research, column technology has evolved rapidly over the last decade. This special issue will highlight new developments in stationary-phases design (packed columns, monoliths, coating, etc.) and column manufacturing for pressure- and/or electro-driven LC mode, and will describe fundamental aspects of column characterization. In addition, novel emerging applications enabled by new technologies will be included.
I would like to invite all colleagues working in this area of research to contribute original research papers, short communications, and review papers to this Special Issue.
Prof. Dr. Sebastiaan Eeltink
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Separations is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
