BMRC Research Forum 2016/2017
Title Biodiesel and the Analytical Challenge
Speaker Professor John Langley, BMSS Lecturer
Professor John Langley is the British Mass Spectrometry Lecturer for 2016 and will be delivering ~18 research seminars across the UK in 2016-17.
John is Head of Characterisation and Analytics in Chemistry in the Faculty of Natural & Environmental Sciences at the University of Southampton. He has over 30 years’ experience of MS and chromatography and has led the Chemistry MS Facility since 1988. His research interests are tackling complexity through the application of separation science and mass spectrometry as tools for chemistry/chemical biology/oilfield chemistry. Specific interests include the application of hyphenated approaches, GC-MS, UHPLC-MS and UHPSFC-MS, to analyse small molecules, pharma and agro chemicals, petrochemicals, oilfield chemicals, fuels and biofuels, oligonucleotides, polymers and fundamental MS/MS fragmentation processes and mechanisms, the latter using computational methods.
John is a Chartered Chemist, a Chartered Scientist, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and an IUPAC Fellow; Vice President of the International MS Foundation, Chair of the RSC Separation Science Group, a member of the RSC Analytical Division Council 2014-2019; a member of the Editorial Board of Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry; formerly Chair of the British MS Society (2008-2010) and a member of the BMSS advisory Board (2012-2017).
