Dr George Donati

George L. Donati obtained his M.Sc. in Analytical Chemistry from the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar, Brazil, 2004), and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Wake Forest University (WFU, USA, 2010), where he received The American Institute of Chemists’ Outstanding Graduate Student Award. During his postdoctoral fellowship at UFSCar, George contributed to the development of the interference standard method (IFS). He is currently an Associate Research Professor at the Department of Chemistry of Wake Forest University, in Winston-Salem, NC, where he developed the methods of multi-energy calibration (MEC), multi-isotope calibration (MICal), multispecies calibration (MSC) and multi-flow calibration (MFC), and contributed to developing the standard dilution analysis method (SDA). His research at WFU focus on the development of portable instrumentation and novel calibration methods for spectrochemical analysis, as well as the use of atomic spectrometry and advanced statistical tools to diagnose and understand diseases.

15th Rio Symposium on Atomic Spectrometry

AIMS AND SCOPE

The aim of the 15th Rio Symposium on Atomic Spectrometry is to bring together experts from universities, academia, official centers, laboratories and industry, to summarize the current progress in different areas of atomic spectrometry and the trends in the applications such as chemical, environmental, geological, biological, food, pharmaceutical and industrial materials and to stimulate contacts and mutual exchange of experiences and ideas.

The 15th RS is held every 2 years and is usually attended by more than 300 participants from 20 countries. It is developed in five days that include the following activities: opening ceremony and conference, invited plenary lectures given by researchers of international prestige, exhibition of novel works under the modality of oral presentations and posters as well as technical seminars of different laboratory suppliers. All submitted works are evaluated and only those of the highest scientific quality are awarded by important publishers (e.g. Elsevier, The Royal Society of Chemistry and Springer). In addition, the works presented at the 15th RS will be included in a book of abstracts and could be published in special issues of international journals after an evaluation performed by recognized external reviewers.

SCIENTIFIC TOPICS

  • Atomic Absorption Spectrometry

  • Electrothermal Atomization

  • Atomic Fluorescence Spectrometry

  • Chemical Vapor Generation

  • Sample Preparation

  • Plasma-based Techniques

  • X-Ray Spectrometry

  • Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectrometry

  • Speciation Analysis

  • Hyphenated Techniques

  • Metallomics

  • Computational Spectroscopy and Imaging Techniques

  • Chemometrics in Spectrometry

HISTORY

Since 1988, the Rio Symposium on Atomic Spectrometry (RS), named like this after the first meeting in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) organized by Dr. Bernhard Welz and Dr. Adilson Curtius, has been held in several countries of South America.

The RS was presented as a unique opportunity for students and researchers from South America to establish contact with the greatest specialists in atomic spectrometry of the United States, Canada and Europe. Thanks to this interaction, cooperation agreements, publications, exchange of students and researchers, etc. have emerged, which allowed South America researchers to get recognition in the whole international scientific community.

Such is the success of the RS, that in these 30 years the attendance of students and researchers from South America, Europe, the United States, Canada, etc., has grown with each meeting (more than 350 participants) and the Scientific Committee involves highly prestigious researchers from all over the world.

Royal Society of Chemistry Seminar at UFSM – Aiming at Excellence in Chemistry

Our JAAS  board members have certainly been busy this month. Many of them attended the 14th Rio Symposium on Atomic Spectrometry meeting, in Vitória City, Brazil, 2nd – 7th April. They barely had time to catch their breath before attending the Royal Society of Chemistry Seminar at UFSM, 10th April, at the Federal University of Santa Maria, Brazil. This was organised by JAAS Editorial Board member Erico Flores (UFSM). It was attended by JAAS Editorial Board member Jörg Feldmann (University of Aberdeen) and JAAS Editorial Board Chair Martin Resano (University of Zaragoza). Lectures and talks were given by Erico, Jörg and Martin, along with Eva Krupp (University of Aberdeen).

Erico Flores (right)

The meeting was a complete success, with registration demand exceeding the number of available spaces. Meeting participants were a mixture of researchers from various scientific fields. Audience engagement was exceptional and the questions and answers at the end had to go on for an extra hour!

The quality of the seminar’s content was top notch, which is no surprise, considering the line-up of speakers. Participants now have no excuse about not knowing how to  submit to JAAS after Martin Resano’s talk: “How to publish in RSC journals”. Other topics included “From rice to whales – a journey into mercury speciation”. All of the talks and lectures were met with great enthusiasm.

Congratulations to Erico, for the success of the seminar, and a huge thank you to all participants and speakers. Due to the success of the meeting, JAAS will very certainly look into holding future events in Brazil.
