Ionic liquids have evolved into a versatile class of solvents that can be custom designed for a wide range of applications in analytical chemistry. They are particularly well-suited for the design of highly selective extraction phases and chromatographic stationary phases. The development of new ionic liquid-based technologies for the separations community will be discussed.

The Analytical Chemistry Award for Young Investigators in Separation Science was instituted by the Subdivision of Chromatography and Separation Science, a subdivision of the Analytical Division of the American Chemical Society. It was established to recognize and encourage outstanding contributions to the field of separation science by a young chemist or chemical engineer who has earned his or her highest degree within ten years of January 1 of the year of the award.

The recipient of the 2012 Award is Jared L. Anderson at University of Toledo.

Jared L. Anderson is currently a professor of analytical chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at The University of Toledo. He joined The University of Toledo as an assistant professor in August 2005 and was promoted to associate professor in 2009 and to the rank of full professor in 2011. Anderson obtained a B.S. in chemistry at South Dakota State University in 2000 followed by his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry under the supervision of Daniel W. Armstrong at Iowa State University in 2005. His research interests include the synthesis of new classes of ionic liquids and materials derived from polymeric ionic liquids, the use of ionic liquids as catalytic solvents, and the use of ionic liquids in all aspects of separation science including analytical extractions, purification, and chromatography.
