Analytical Forum 2004
The International Symposium "Analytical Forum 2004" will be held in Warsaw (Poland) from 4 to 8 July 2004 under honorary auspices of the Federation of European Chemical Societies, the Polish Chemical Society and the Committee on Analytical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences. The Symposium is an annual conference organized in different places in Poland and it continues the tradition of several Polish cyclic scientific meetings, such as e.g. Chromatographic Symposia in Torun and "Chemistry Forum" in Warsaw. The 2004 Symposium, organized by the Faculty of Chemistry at the Warsaw University of Technology, will be devoted to separation techniques, mass spectrometry and hyphenated techniques, environmental monitoring and analysis and miniaturized analytical devices. The venue will be auditoria of The Main Building and The Chemistry Building of the Warsaw University of Technology, favorably located in a central quarter of Warsaw.

The session will be focused on the advances in separation sciences, especially in chromatography. It will be connected with the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the invention of chromatography by Tswett, professor of the University of Warsaw. Attention will be paid to theoretical and practical aspects of separation sciences. Applications in various areas will be considered.
- Liquid chromatography (TLC, HPLC, GPC)
- Gas chromatography
- Electromigration techniques
- Sample preparation
- Columns and stationary phases
Mass spectrometry and hyphenated techniques
Mass spectrometry is playing an increasing role in both inorganic and biological analysis (proteomics). The combination of liquid chromatography or capillary electrophoresis, with an element-specific (ICP MS) or molecule specific (electrospray MS/MS) detector is becoming a fundamental analytical tool in the environment, biology and medicine. The session is devoted to the state of the art and trends in these areas.
- Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
- Mass spectrometry of biomolecules
- Chromatography and electrophoresis with MS detection
- Metal speciation
Environmental analysis and monitoring
Monitoring and analysis of environmental contaminants create many challenges to because of the variety of potential analytes and their low concentrations in complex matrices. These problems can be solved owing to new more sensitive and selective detectors and sensors (including biosensors) and to new procedures for isolation and/or preconcentration of analytes prior to final determination. The session will focus on new trends and achievements in these fields.
- Sampling and handling of environmental samples
- Techniques of isolation and/or preconcentration of analytes
- Instrumentation and automation of analytical procedures
- Reference materials in environmental analysis
- Biomonitoring and bioanalytics
Miniaturized analytical devices
The session will focus on perspectives and the current state of the research and development of miniaturized analytical devices. Miniaturization is a philosophy and a tool to change activities in the chemical and biological sciences at a fundamental level. One impressive example is the miniaturized system for total analysis, the so called m-TAS, which combines the achievements in micromachining and microelectronics with analytical procedures.
- Miniaturized chemical sensors and biosensors
- Capillary electrophoresis, on-chip electrophoretic separation
- Microdetectors for capillary column systems
- New principles and strategies of m-TAS systems
- Applications in clinical diagnosis, process control, and environmental assessment
