Prof. Poole was born and educated in the United Kingdom receiving a B.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of Leeds (1971) followed by graduate studies at the University of Bristol, MSc. in analytical chemistry (1972), and Ph.D. with Prof. E. D. Morgan at the University of Keele (1975) on the analysis of insect molting hormones. Since 1980 he has been at the Department of Chemistry, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan, USA, except for 1995-1996, spent as the Governors Lecturer and Professor of Analytical Chemistry at Imperial College of Science, Technology & Medicine, London, in the United Kingdom. Prof. Poole is a polychromatographer with broad interests in the separation and detection of small molecules in biological, environmental, and food samples; sample preparation technology; and computer-aided data analysis techniques. He is the author of over 325 research papers, an editor of the Journal of Chromatography, and a member of the editorial boards of 5 other analytical chemistry journals. In 1985 he received the Tswett Medal of the International Symposium Advances in Chromatography, in 1991 the Jubilee Medal of the Chromatographic Society, and in 1997 a D.Sc. from the University of Leeds (UK).
This encyclopedia is part of a new generation of literature sources that is directed as much at the on-line computer user as the traditional book reader. It is a comprehensive data source that should appeal to a large range of scientists and engineers with an interest in physico-chemical separations. The focus is on the ever-expanding range of specialist methods and analytical techniques available to the separation professional...it will appeal particularly to those working in high technology industries such as the biomedical, pharmaceutical and agrochemical fields. Research professionals will also find it useful in method development for the purification and analysis of laboratory samples. --SANDRA KENTISH, Chemical Engineering in Australia I think this is a great idea given the dominant position of separation techniques in many areas of science and technology... I am not aware of anything similar on the market." --SHAWN DOOGAN, University of East London, UK "I feel that the overall structure is sound. A user wishing to use or research a specific technique may access the information at the level of introduction, background theory or by looking at practical examples." --DAVID SHEEHAN, University of College Cork, Ireland "Given the assurances of breadth of coverage, I believe the project to be viable, exciting and most useful." --ALAN TOWNSHEND, University of Hull, UK
