ChromSoc Jubilee Medal 2016 Joint Winner Peter Myers

Peter obtained his B.Sc. in Pure Chemistry 1st Class with Honours in 1969 from the University of Salford and his Ph.D. in Maths, Physics and Chemistry in 1972 from the same University. Professor Myers’ involvement in chromatography came by mistake, as he always wanted to be a photographer, something that he still follows with a

ChromSoc Martin Medal 2015 Winner Pavel Jandera

Professor Pavel Jandera was born in 1944 and has had a proliferic career in the field of separation science. He was introduced to separation science by Jaroslav Churácek during his undergraduate studies in Czechoslovakia. Initially looking at TLC he then started to develop his own HPLC instrumentation. In 1973 he completed his PhD thesis on

ChromSoc Martin Medal 2014 Winner Nobuo Tanaka

Professor Tanaka’s research is truly multidisciplinary. His work spans research on highly selective stationary phases, isotope separation and separations based on isotopic chirality, separation mechanism elucidation, multidimensional separations and biological separations. He contributed to the development of the monolithic silica rod column which was commercialised by Merck in 2000 and is widely used in
