James L. Waters Symposium
Supercritical Fluid Chromatography

Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC) is an analytical technique performed with a mobile phase of carbon dioxide with or without polar modifiers and, capillary or packed columns. As such it offers some of the properties of both gas and liquid chromatography, viscosities similar to a gas, solvating properties as in a liquid. Pioneer speakers will detail SFC’s history, capillary and packed column applications, commercial applications, SFC/MS and recent advancements.

The 33rd James L. Waters Symposium will highlight the development, commercial construction, and recent advances in instrumentation and it’s applications.

What is the Waters Symposium?
The James L. Waters Annual Symposium is a unique component of the Pittsburgh Conference Technical Program. Mr. Waters, founder of Waters Associates, Inc. and President of Waters Business Systems, Inc. proposed in 1987 that the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP) offer an annual symposium exploring the origin, development, implementation, and commercialization of scientific instrumentation of established and major significance. The objective of the symposium is to recognize researchers and the development and application of instrumentation by preserving the early, and in some cases, more mature history of the important contributions as well as the cooperation between inventors, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and marketing organizations.
In Memory of James L. Waters
In 1987, he shared his vision with Pittcon on the creation of an annual symposium focused on the identification of an instrumental technique and the coalition of basic scientists and instrumentation companies that brought this technique to laboratories around the globe. Thanks to generous annual support from Mr. and Mrs. Waters, the James L. Waters Symposium series, Pioneers in the Development and Application of Analytical Instrumentation, has been one of the highlights of Pittcon’s annual technical program. The annual symposia have recognized innovators in the conception, development, implementation, and commercialization of scientific instrumentation of major and established significance.
