Peter Schoenmakers honored with Csaba Horváth Memorial Award
At the Balaton Symposium on High-Performance Separation Methods, held last week in Siófok at Lake Balaton in Hungary, HIMS professor Peter Schoenmakers was awarded the Csaba Horváth Memorial Award, an honorable distinction in the field of separation science.
Schoenmakers, who holds the chair for Analytical Chemistry & Forensic Analytical Chemistry at the Van 't Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences, was awarded the prize 'in recognition of his significant contribution to the development, understanding, and propagation of high-performance separations throughout the world' and furthermore 'for his co-operation in the development of chromatography in Hungary'.
The award recognizes the leading position of Peter Schoenmakers in the field of Analytical Chemistry. Last year he was awarded the prestigious 'Knox medal' and the Analytical Scientist placed him at an honourable seventh place of the Analytical Sciences Power List 2013.
