Jacob Haun, Institute for Energy and Environmental Technology, Duisburg, Germany, has been awarded the 2014 Eberhard–Gerstel Prize by the Working Group Separation Science of the Section for Analytical Chemistry of the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh; German Chemical Society). The award is endowed with 2,500 EUR and is presented biennially for an outstanding publication in the field of analytical separation techniques.
Haun is awarded for his article entitled “Online and Splitless NanoLC × CapillaryLC with Quadrupole/Time-of -Flight Mass Spectrometric Detection for Comprehensive Screening Analysis of Complex Samples”, which was published in Analytical Chemistry in September 2013.
The award was presented at the Analytica Conference, Munich, Germany, on April 2, 2014, where Jacob Haun also gave a presentation.
Jacob Haun studied water science at the University of Duisburg–Essen, Germany, where he also obtained his M.S. for studies on the HPLC analysis of hop bitter compounds in beer and wort. He is currently a doctoral student at the Institute for Energy and Environmental Technology, Duisburg, where he is focused on the analytical screening of house dust samples by using a multidimensional chromatographic method.
