Claudia-Ruiz-Capillas and Leo Nollet
This monograph is truly unprecedented in its scope, both in terms of content and the breadth of the collective expertise. Its editors, Claudia-Ruiz-Capillas and Leo Nollet, assembled a team of 80 authors from 14 countries to compose a work in 42 chapters of which the first four deal with FIA techniques, while the body of the work is focused on the ways in which a wide variety of samples and analytes can be assayed. The methods listed include preservatives, antioxidants, sweeteners, colorants, flavor enhancers and other species.

The new edition of Christian’s Analytical Chemistry, focuses on in-depth coverage of the principles and techniques of quantitative analysis and instrumental analysis. The goal of the text is to provide a foundation of the analytical process, tools, and computational methods and resources, and to illustrate with problems that bring realism to the practice of analytical chemistry. It is designed for undergraduate college students majoring in chemistry and in fields related to chemistry.

  • miniSIA-1 , single pump Sequential Injection Analyzer (A)
  • miniSIA-2, two pump Multipurpose Analyzer, suitable for both Sequential and Flow Injection Analysis (B)
Both instruments are controlled by FloPro software and comprise OO Spectrophotometer, Xe-Tungsten as well as LED light source and set of flowcells with 1cm, 5cm and 10 cm light path. Flow cells for fluorescence and chemiluminescence are also available. The temperature of holding coils and flow cells can be regulated. The miliGAT pumps provide flow range of 0.04 to 500 microliters/second.

Is Awarded to Professor Elo H. Hansen of the The Technical University of Denmark
 In recognition of his outstanding contributions in the field of  flow injection analysis

Award Venue Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Downtown (City View Dining Room) Tuesday 8th March 2016, 6:00 PM

The Talanta Medal was initiated in 1961 by Pergamon Press to honor outstanding contributions to analytical chemistry. This prestigious award of a gold medal was first given to spot test pioneer Fritz Feigl, who wrote the foreword for the first issue of Talanta in July,1958, and contributed to the first issue. It was awarded on an irregular basis, with the following recipients:
1961 Professor Fritz Feigl Rio de Janerio, Brazil
1963 Professor Gerold Schwarzenbach ETH Zurich, Switzerland    
1965 Professor I.P. Alimarin Vernadsky Institute, Moscow, USSR
1967 Professor Egon Stahl University of Saarland, Germany 
1969 Dr. Alan Walsh CSIRO Melbourne, Australia
1971 Dr. Rudolph Pribil Heyrovsky Institute, Czechoslovakia
1974 Professor B.V. Lvov Polytechnical Institute, Leningrad, USSR
1977 Professor Ronald Belcher University of Birmingham, England
1981 Professor Jaromir Ružicka Technical University of Denmark
1983 Professor Taitiro Fujinaga University of Kyoto, Japan
1986 Professor Ernö Pungor Technical University of Budapest, Hungary
1988 Professor Herbert Laitinen University of Florida USA
1991 Professor Wilhelm Simon ETH, Zurich, Switzerland
1993 Professor James Winefordner University of Florida USA
1995 Professor Gary Christian University of Washington USA
After a twenty year hiatus, Elsevier Science is pleased to announce reinauguration of the Talanta Medal. It will again be awarded, with a goal to select outstanding recipients every two years. We hope this medal will once again reflect on the reputation of this leading analytical journal.
