Special Issue "Development of Alternative Green Sample Preparation Techniques"
A special issue of Separations (ISSN 2297-8739).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2019).
It is without doubt that sample preparation often poses the ultimate challenge to any analytical method development process, whether for targeted or non-targeted analyses in complex matrices.
Recently, trends in the development of newer sample preparation techniques have shifted toward greener and faster approaches, guaranteeing minimal consumption of organic solvents, promoting the production of reusable extraction devices, enhancement of analysis throughput through automated systems, use of natural sorptive materials, etc.
Considering the great efforts made by many research groups in developing more sustainable and efficient sample preparation protocols for food, environmental and bio-analytical applications, I invite you to contribute to this Special Issue of Separations, dedicated to the “Development of Alternative Green Sample Preparation Techniques”, with original research articles and reviews.
With your rich expertise in the field of analytical chemistry, I believe that your contribution to this Special Issue will definitely have a significant impact on the entire scientific research community.
Dr. Emanuela Gionfriddo
