October 2018 Meeting

Speaker: Carsten Prasse, Johns Hopkins University

Topic: Using mass spectrometry to unravel the occurrence, fate and effects of organic contaminants in the environment

Date: Monday, October 15, 2018

Time: 6:15 pm Dinner and Vendor Night, 7:15 pm Presentation

Location: Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, Inc. Training Center 7100 Riverwood Drive, Columbia, MD 21046 (Directions)

Dinner: Please RSVP to Yan Wang (yanwang@umd.edu) by Friday, October 12th if you will be attending the dinner.

Abstract: More than 80,000 chemicals are used in commercial products today and many of them eventually find their way into our environment. While modern analytical tools, such as liquid-chromatography mass spectrometry, are able to detect an increasing number of chemicals in environmental samples, little is known about the fate of these compounds in the natural and built environment. In addition, limited information is available about potential toxic effects of most chemicals.
New approaches are needed that link exposures and effects and that ultimately allow for a prioritization of chemicals that are of highest concern. The presentation will discuss how mass spectrometry-based approaches can be used for i) the detection of previously unknown chemicals, ii) the identification of the transformation products that are formed in the natural and built environment and iii) the determination of toxic effects on a molecular level.

39th East Coast Ion Chemistry Conference

The 39th East Coast Ion Chemistry Conference, ECICC, will be held on Saturday, October 13 in 219 Brown Lab at the University of Delaware. You and your co-workers are invited to attend. There will be refreshments and opportunities for discussion and conversations.

Talks have been given at past meetings on instrumentation (MALDI, TOF, ICR, ESI, GC/MS, API, PIAMS), ion molecule reactions, calculations, and chemical analyses. Attendance in recent years has been 30 – 40 and the presentations have lasted from ~9 am until shortly after noon.

Please let us know if you want to give a TEN (10) minute talk on one aspect of your research – not a survey of work done in the last year. We encourage presentations by graduate and undergraduate students. There is no charge to attend the meeting or to give presentations.

We would appreciate a response by the first week in October. All we need is your name, affiliation and (if you are giving a presentation) the title of your talk. No abstract is required. Titles will be accepted through noon on Thursday, October 11. The meeting is informal, but we do need a schedule. Please respond to bmunson@udel.edu.

A parking map for the University of Delaware is here. There is a large (pay, unfortunately) parking garage on Academy Street, near Brown Lab.

We hope that you will be able to attend and present some of your work.
Murray Johnston, Burnaby Munson, Doug Ridge
