    neering in order to interchange expe- rience and to discuss potentially im- portant new developments,

    Hopefully the multidisciplinary approach will help to pull down exist- ing but undesirable barriers. Invited lectures comprise a wide variety of subjects: - Introductory lecture (J. P. P. Clarke, U.K.) - Sampling strategies and related subjects ( P. Gy, France; F. W. Pij- pers, The Netherlands) - Process chromatography (H. Ha- chenberg, F.R.G.) - Infrared analyzers (M. Pochon, Switzerland) - Evaluation of process analyzers (P. van der Louw, The Netherlands) - Academic teaching aspects in rela- tion to process analysis (E. Pungor, Hungary) - Development of analyzers from a

    manufacturers point of view (M. Jola, Switzerland) - The contribution of quality aspects to process control (J. E. Rijnsdorp, The Netherlands) - Chemical type analyzers (. . . . .) - Future developments; micro-sen- sors (. . . . .) - Examples of in-house developed analyzers (H. van den Dolder, The Netherlands).

    1985 Tswett Chromatography Medals

    The M. S. Tswett Chromatography Medals for 1985 were awarded to John H. Knox, Karel Macek and Colin F. Poole at the 21 st Internation- al Symposium on Advances in Chro- matography which took place June 3-6 in Oslo. These scientists were recognized for their contributions to the development of chromatography.

    John Henderson Knox was born in 1927, in Edinburgh, Scotland. He graduated in 1949 from the Universi- ty of Edinburgh, receiving his B.Sc., and in 1953 from Cambridge Univer- sity, with a Ph.D. in Chemistry. In 1963 Edinburgh University granted him a D.Sc. degree.

    In 1953 Dr. Knox was appointed lecturer at the Department of Chem- istry, University of Edinburgh, and has been associated with this school since that time. His present position is Personal Professor of Physical Chemistry, and Director of the Wolf- son Liquid Chromatography Unit at the University.

    Dr. Knox has been a pioneer in both gas and modern liquid chroma- tography. In gas chromatography, he

    first applied the technique to the study of combustion reactions and gas kinetics. In high-performance liquid chromatography, his funda- mental theoretical studies and the di- mensionless approach to the inter- pretation of plate height and mobile phase velocity leading to the Knox equation, the development of im- proved column packing, and the use of ion-pairing agents are particularly noteworthy.

    Karel Macek was born in 1928, in Prague, Czechoslovakia. He studied at Charles University in Prague, re- ceiving his Ph.D. in 1951. Soon after his graduation he became the head of the Chromatographic Laboratories at the Research Institute of Pharma- cy and Biochemistry in Prague. In 1968 he was appointed an associate professor of analytical chemistry at the Technical University of Pardu- bite. In 1971, he became head of the Laboratory for Clinical Biochemistry at the Third Clinics for Internal Med- icine of Charles University Medical School. Since 1977 he has been a se- nior scientist at the Institute of Physi- ology of the Czechoslovak Academy

    of Sciences in Prague. Dr. Macek is one of the pioneers in

    paper chromatography. He became involved in this technique in 1947 and published a number of funda- mental papers in this area. His main interests were in the mechanism of chromatographic separation, in the relationship between chemical struc- ture and chromatographic behavior and he applied the technique for the systematic analysis of drugs. In the last decade he became involved in the chromatographic analysis of complex mixtures of biological im- portance and their delicate changes in pathological situations and ontog- eny.

    Colin Frank Poole was born in 1950 in Huyton, Lancashire, U.K. He graduated in 1971 from the Uni- versity of Leeds with a B.Sc. and in 1972 from the University of Bristol with an M.Sc. in Chemistry. He re- ceived his Ph.D. from the University of Keele in 1975 with a thesis on the chromatograhic analysis of insect moulting hormones. In 1980 he joined Wayne State University, in Detroit, Michigan, as an assistant professor in Analytical Chemistry. Since 1984 he has been an Associate Professor at Wayne State.

    Dr. Poole became active in chro- matography in graduate school and has continued his involvement since that time. He had carried out signifi- cant development work in a number of fields, particularly in selective de- tectors and derivative formation and the development of thermally stable polar stationary phases in gas chro- matography and in high-perform- ance thin-layer chromatography.
