Invitation for Special Issue

You are invited to contribute a paper to the virtual special issue on “Separation Science in South America” in the Journal of Separation Science (JSS).
This special issue will cover research articles, short communications, and review papers and will be entirely devoted to the papers presented at the COLACRO 2014 symposium.
We will collect papers which fit into this special issue until 31 December 2014. If you intend to contribute, please e-mail the tentative title to Elena Stashenko. For more information see the general invitation letter.

NEW Special issues

The virtual special issues on Sample Preparation in Mass Spectrometry deals with methods and applications of sample preparation concepts that facilitate and ensure accurate analysis by mass spectrometry (MS), be it in direct (infusion) MS analysis or in hyphenated techniques. It contains articles on new sample preparation concepts, selective enrichment and derichment methods and materials, nanomaterial-based and microscale sample preparation, online-sample preparation strategies, derivatization/labelling, and their application to food, clinical, environmental analysis, metabolomics, proteomics, lipidomics, and glycomics.

The virtual special issues on Analysis of amino acids, peptides, and proteins deals with the analysis and characterization of vitally important biomolecules, by electromigration, capillary electrophoresis, and chromatographic methods. Peptides are an extremely large and variable group of compounds, fulfilling crucial functions, such as hormones, neurotransmitters, co-enzymes, enzyme substrates and inhibitors, ionophores, growth factors, drugs, toxins and antibiotics. Proteins are large biological molecules, or macromolecules, consisting of one or more long chains of amino acid residues. They perform a tremendous field of functions within living organisms, including catalyzing metabolic reactions, replicating DNA, responding to stimuli, and transporting molecules from one location to another. Amino acids are less numerous but not less relevant compounds, being the building blocks of peptides and proteins and intermediates in metabolism and signal transduction. In the current era of proteomics, peptidomics and metabolomics, the importance of peptides, proteins, and amino acids is even increasing.
