Short Course Information

The Green Chemistry Group is pleased to announce the return of the SFC/SFE Europe 2020 conference in Prague, Czechia, 19 October – 22 October, 2020 at the Prague Congress Centre. The conference will begin with a short course taught by experts in the field, followed by two and one-half days of oral and poster scientific presentations. Leading vendors of SFC and SFE instrumentation and supplies will exhibit their wares, and present numerous vendor workshops. Social events and complimentary lunches will provide excellent opportunities to network with fellow scientists and vendors, and to hear personal updates on the latest advances.

Confirmed Speakers

Professor, University of Pardubice, Faculty of Chemical Technology
Department of Analytical Chemistry, Czech Republic

Michal Holčapek obtained his Ph.D. at the Department of Analytical Chemistry, University of Pardubice. Now he is a full professor of analytical chemistry at the same university. The research focus is in mass spectrometry and its coupling with liquid chromatography and supercritical fluid chromatography, applied mainly in the lipidomic analysis and cancer biomarker research. He had short research stays in France, USA, and Norway, obtained several scientific awards, such as the Power List of 100 most influential people in the analytical sciences (2013 and 2015, The Analytical Scientist) and the Prize for Chemistry (1997, Rhône-Poulenc). He is a co-author of over 130 papers in peer-reviewed international journals, over 400 conference presentations, h-index 39, member of editorial advisory boards of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Lipids, chair of analytical chemistry panel in Czech Science Foundation, member of scientific council of FCHI VŠCHT Praha. He was an co-editor of books Handbook of Advanced Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry Techniques (Academic Press and AOCS Press, 2017) and Extreme Chromatography: Faster, Hotter, Smaller (American Oil Chemical Society, 2011), editor of topical collections in Analytical Chemistry, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, and Journal of Chromatography A, former head of Czech Mass Spectrometry Section in I.M.M. Spectroscopic Society and national representative in International Mass Spectrometry Foundation (2005-13), the chairman of over ten international and national conferences, e.g., HPLC 2017 Prague, 3rd European Lipidomic Meeting in 2013, 14. Czech - Slovak spectroscopic conference in 2010, etc. He is one of founding members of Lipidomics Standards Initiative and vice-president for conferences in the International Lipidomics Society.

Professor, Foodomics Laboratory, Bioactivity and Food Analysis Department
Institute of Food Science Research (CIAL-CSIC), Madrid, Spain

Prof. Dr. Elena Ibañez is a Full Research Professor at the Institute of Food Science Research (CIAL) belonging to the CSIC in Madrid, Spain. She received her PhD in Analytical Chemistry at the UAM, Spain and carried out her postdoctoral training at Brigham Young University, USA and at the University of California at Davis, USA. Elena's main activity includes the study and development of new green extraction processes based on the use of compressed fluids to isolate bioactive compounds from natural sources such as food and agricultural by-products, plants and algae. She has received different national and international awards, co-authored more than 230 publications, 27 book chapters and 10 patents. Awarded as one of the 50 top women in Analytical Chemistry (2016 Power List, the Analytical Scientist, October, 2016) and one of the 10 Top 10s in Analytical Chemistry in the category of Public Defenders (2017 Power List, the Analytical Scientist, October, 2017). Her h index is 69 and her works have received more than 16000 citations (January, 2020) (https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=KVg-e8MAAAAJ).

Chair of Analytical Chemistry, Leipzig University, Germany

Detlev Belder is a full professor of analytical chemistry at Leipzig University.  He earned his Ph.D. in chemistry in 1994 at the University of Marburg with experimental work done at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim an der Ruhr.

From 1995 - 2006, he headed the Department of Separation Science at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung.

In 2006 he was appointed as a professor of analytical chemistry at the University of Regensburg. In 2007 he accepted the offer as a chair of Analytical Chemistry at Leipzig University.

Belder's research is focused on lab‐on‐a‐chip technology as an enabling science in chemistry. In the belder laboratories at the University of Leipzig, a broad field of research and application of lab-on-a-chip technology is carried out. The Belder Group is known for miniaturized separation techniques such as chip electrophoresis and chip HPLC. The Belder lab also works on detection techniques such as the coupling of microfluidic chips with mass spectrometry or ion mobility spectrometry, as well as on optical techniques such as fluorescence and Raman microscopy. A particular focus in recent years has been on integrated chip laboratories that combine chemical reactors and analysis units on one chip.

Professor Belder has been recognized with several awards, such as the Gerhard Hesse Prize (2015) and the Fresenius Prize (2019).

Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Messina, Italy

Luigi Mondello is Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Messina, Italy.

He is the author of more than 500 publications (research articles, book chapters, and reviews) and more than 1000 conference presentations (of which 184 invited/plenary lectures).

His research interests include high-resolution chromatography techniques (HRGC, HPLC, HRGC-MS, HPLC-MS, OPLC and SFE/SFC) and the development of hyphenated (LC-GC-MS, GC-GC) and multidimensional “comprehensive” (GC×GC, LC×LC) techniques and their applications to the study of natural complex matrices.



This is the third time I’ve attended this conference, and believe it is one of the best yet
