Early Career Events
The Early career event program provides opportunities for less senior scientists to network and learn from volunteers from the community.
These events are all being planned by our exhibitors. To find out more information, visit them on their booths.

CANCELLED Extraction strategies and procedures applied to organic compounds from a variety of matrices
Sunday 12th August 09:00-17:00
Contacts: Calum Morrison
This one day workshop will comprise lectures, tutorials and opportunities for short class discussion and may be of particular value to early career researchers. The workshop will focus on methods and strategies for extraction of mainly organic molecules from a variety of matrices. We will briefly review some of the techniques including solid phase micro extraction and related technologies, solid phase extraction, solvent extraction and newer/combined developments. Other preparation processes including chemical derivatisation and a brief mention of instrumental techniques (GCMS, LCMS etc) will be covered if required for clarity and putting overall discussion into context. Examples of extraction will be illustrated from a variety of subject areas with an emphasis on molecule type, method development / approaches and important applications. Some examples include drugs, volatile hydrocarbons, pesticides, fatty acids, amines and related molecules from biological, environmental and food matrices. The workshop will finish with a discussion session to sum up key points from the day.
