Saluting Excellence in Analytical Chemistry

The 2019 Power List from The Analytical Scientist is here! This year’s list is filled with familiar faces for anyone in the analytical sciences community who reads ACS Publications journals. The publication says the list, which has undergone a number of changes in recent years before returning to the top 100 format, exists for the purpose of”showcasing the tremendous range of talent, ingenuity and leadership present across all corners of analytical science on a global scale.”

This year’s list includes 100 of the most influential analytical scientists, with number 1-20 appearing in ranked order, while the remaining 80 are listed alphabetically.  A total of 17 names on the list are Editors of ACS Publications journals, including 7 of the top 20, while several more are either former editors or serve on journal Editorial Advisory Boards.

The editors on the list are compiled below by their respective journals, including the Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry, which officially joins the ACS Publications family in January 2020. Editors’ positions on the list are unranked, unless otherwise specified.
