Course Description
In this course we will provide a survey of the most important theoretical and practical issues to consider when developing two-dimensional liquid chromatography methods. We will begin with a discussion of the potential advantages of 2D methods over 1DLC separations, both for targeted and comprehensive 2D analyses. We will provide an overview of current understanding of factors that affect 2D separation performance, including the impacts of undersampling and orthogonality of separation mechanisms. We will summarize best practices for implementation of 2D separations in application areas including food and beverage analysis, pharmaceutical separations, and metabolomics. Finally, we will discuss current approaches to quantitation and visualization of 2D data, and review the characteristics of commercially available instrumentation for 2D separations.

Target Audience
The target audience is people who are either considering implementing two-dimensional separations in their laboratories, or have already purchased and instrument are seeking to quickly learn the fundamentals of the technique and best practices for method development to make the most of their effort with the approach.

Course Instructor's Biography
The instructors will be: Dwight Stoll, Ph.D. - Associate Professor of Chemistry, Gustavus Adolphus College Peter Carr, Ph.D. - Professor of Chemistry, University of Minnesota Together the instructors have published over 30 papers in the area of two-dimensional liquid chromatography in the last decade, including several review articles and book chapters. During the same time they have given over 50 conference presentations and organized several symposia and tutorials on the subject at meetings including Pittcon and the HPLC20XX series. Most recently, Dr. Stoll taught a one-day short courses at the HPLC2013 conference in Amsterdam (June, 2013), which was very well attended with 60 participants, and at Pittcon 2014. We have seen a dramatic increase in interest in 2DLC from non-expert users in the past two years, and anticipate that there will be continued and growing interest in this topic in the short course format.
