Extreme Separations

Research News from the group of Professor Peter W Carr.


Cover Story in Chemical & Engineering News, "Chromatography In The Extreme"; Vol 68, 17-23, April 28 2008 (Link)

Research from the lab of Prof. Peter Carr was recently featured in the April 28, 2008 cover story of Chemical and Engineering News about exciting new approaches to liquid chromatography. The article highlights the efforts of the Carr research group to make stable chromatographic column media, such as zirconia, to replace the standard silica packing materials. In addition, two-dimensional liquid chromatographic separations of biomolecules in the Carr group are discussed as a novel approach that achieves chemical separation of complex mixtures in a fraction of the time of conventional LC.
