RSC Faraday Discussion: Challenges in Analysis of Complex Natural Mixtures

Please join us at the upcoming Royal Society of Chemistry Faraday Discussion:

Challenges in the Analysis of Complex Natural Mixtures

Edinburgh, 13-15 May 2019

Oral abstract deadline: 27 July 2018

Most naturally occurring systems can be characterised as complex mixtures, such as biofluids, food or soil.  Determination of their chemical composition is a highly challenging and is a key bottleneck in metabolomics. The techniques best positioned to tackle such mixtures experimentally include mass spectrometry, chromatography, NMR spectroscopy, or new alternative techniques, including combinations of the above methods. For the most part, people who work on the analysis of complex mixtures are driving the progress in exploiting new methodologies and their creative combinations. This Faraday Discussion will focus on four themes:

  • Dealing with Complexity
  • High-resolution Techniques
  • Data Mining and Visualisation
  • Future Challenges and New Approache

Faraday Discussions have a special format where research papers written by the speakers are distributed to all participants before the meeting, and most of the meeting is devoted to discussing the papers. Please see the website for further information:
