Talk Title: Capillary electrochromatography: features and applications in the field of enantiomers separation

Salvatore Fanali is in the Teaching Committee of the PhD School in Natural Science and Engineering at University of Verona, Italy He was head of the “Capillary Electromigration and Chromatographic Methods” Unit at Institute of Chemical Methodologies-C.N.R., Monterotondo, Italy. His research focus on i) studies on molecular recognition (chiral and achiral interactions) applying capillary chromatographic and electromigration methods; ii) development of new separation techniques (electromigration and chromatographic methods such as CZE, MEKC, CEC and nano-LC, respectively) and hyphenation with mass spectrometry (MS); iii) synthesis of new chiral stationary phases for CEC and nano-LC. Preparation of packed capillaries with different stationary phases; iv) preparation of monolithic columns and frits; v) method optimization for applications to drug, peptides, enantiomers, herbicides, food, environment, biomedical and forensic compounds analysis. He published more than 340 papers in the above mentioned fields. He obtained some international Awards, e.g., “Liberti” medal in Analytical Chemistry, “Nota” medal for the contribution given in the field of capillary liquid chromatography. In 2015 he was voted as one of “the Top 100 most influential people in the world of analytical science” (Analytical Scientists Power List)
