We are honoured to announce the publication of an online web collection with JAAS and Metallomics dedicated to the memory of Joe Caruso.
Joe was a well-known and highly respected leader in the field of analytical chemistry and plasma spectrochemistry in particular – more recently he made great contributions to the fields of elemental speciation and metallomics. Over the years he had been very active for the Royal Society of Chemistry and as well as serving as Chair for JAAS, he was the founding Chair for Metallomics, and became one of the leaders in this emerging area of exciting research.
This very special compilation highlights analytical research being conducted in these areas. We believe that this collection of papers is a fitting memorial to an inspiring mentor and outstanding chemist.
We thank the guest editors Gary Hieftje and Maria Montes-Bayon, and those who were able to contribute to the collection for their support of this very special memorial.
