The 17th International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography and Separation Technology (HTC-17) will be held in person from 26 to 28 January 2022, at het Pand Conference Center in Ghent, Belgium. HTC-17 will be organized under the auspices of the Royal Flemish Chemical Society (KVCV) and the Separation Science Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry (SSG RSC). The HTC-17 conference will be the premier platform for state-of-the-art developments in separation technologies and hyphenated techniques.
The conference will encompass three parallel sessions consisting of
plenary lectures, keynote lectures, tutorials, oral and poster-flash
presentations. One of the parallel sessions will be dedicated to young
emerging scientists. The symposium will also host an attractive
technical exhibition where vendors will present their newest instruments
and developments, topped with technical seminars.
The conference will cover fundamental and practical aspects of liquid-phase and gas chromatography,
including UHPLC-MS, 2D-LC, GC(×GC)-MS, SFC, etc. The program will
include topics such as sample preparation and hyphenation, emerging
detectors, method development and artificial intelligence, column
technology and stationary-phase developments, miniaturization and chip
technology, dealing with data complexity, mining and curation. The conference will
also address bottlenecks and describe trends and new technologies for a
wide range of applications, including (bio-)pharmaceuticals,
macromolecules, medical and clinical applications, food analysis and
safety, environmental studies, energy, green approaches, etc.
