About the Author
is co-author of approx. 90 papers, 16 book chapters and of over 220 oral/poster presentations in national and international meetings. In 2012, he received the "John Phillips Award" for his work in the field of comprehensive 2D GC. His main research activities are focused on the analysis of volatiles contained in complex samples, by using advanced gas chromatographic methodologies and innovative column stationary phases. In particular, he has acquired considerable experience in the use of fast and very-fast gas chromatographic techniques. Furthermore, he is actively engaged in the use of classical multidimensional GC and LC-GC instruments, and comprehensive two-dimensional GC (GCxGC) and LC-GC (LCxGC) systems, hyphenated to various MS systems (quadMS, MSMS, high-resToFMS). He is co-editor of a book on Multidimensional Chromatography, and he has been invited lecturer in national and international congresses and meetings. His research interests include Chromatography techniques and the development of coupled techniques such as LC-GC-MS, GC-GC, GCxGC, LCxLC, LCxGC and their applications in the study of natural complex matrices. Prof. Mondello has been member of the scientific and organizing committees of national and international meetings in the field of analytical chemistry. He was also Chairman of the 36th and 38th International Symposium on Capillary Chromatography and the 9th and 11th GCxGC Symposium, Riva del Garda, Italy and Chairman of the 14th International Symposium on Advances in Extraction Technologies, Messina.
