         Spring 2017 Edition


Another  American Chemical Society National Meeting in the books! True to form, this meeting was incredibly busy and marked my first meeting in the Chair succession of the ACS Divisional Activities Committee subcommittee's Multidisciplinary Program Planning Group (MPPG) which is responsible for the thematic programming
 for ACS National Meetings. I organized the Advances in Analytical Separations Analytical Chemistry Division flagship program for the fifth consecutive ACS National Meeting in which I presented "Screening and on-site identification of accelerants for arson investigations". This talk focused on the protocol used by arson investigators  by utilizing a photoionization detector (PID) as a preliminary screening tool and then employing a hand-held mini gas chromatograph to identify the species used to start the fire. This presentation is available upon email request. 

Our own, Jack Driscoll, is the 2017 Edward J. Baier Technical Achievement Award Recipient presented by the American Industrial Hygiene Association!

"The Baier Award  is given to the individual or group of individuals, company, academic institution, organization, or association that has made the most significant contribution to industrial hygiene in recent years through technical expertise, innovations, or scientific advancements.
 
John N. Driscoll, PhD - Edward J. Baier Technical Achievement Award  
John (Jack) Driscoll is an innovator in the development of a photoionization detector (PID) for gas chromatography. Driscoll quickly recognized the potential for PID technology in a stand-alone detector in the 1970s. His innovations and farsighted development of PID technologies have led to a transformation in real-time detection tools used by the IH profession. He has also had a tremendous impact on a diverse range of other scientific disciplines".

Jack is one of only five AIHA National Award recipients. Learn more about these awards here .
