Although it has been happening to some degree for centuries, food adulteration is increasingly becoming a worldwide epidemic, as evidenced by the melamine scandal of 2008 and recent meat and fish substitutions at major food chains. Analysts are applying more sophisticated chromatographic, spectroscopic, and enzymatic analytical techniques to monitor and measure food adulterants, which are often economically motivated. In this instalment, guest authors Jeff Hurst and Kendra Pfeifer from Hershey Foods explore high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), ultrahigh-pressure liquid chromatography (UHPLC), and mass spectrometry (MS) approaches being adopted to keep ahead of the food adulteration game. © 2014, Advanstar Communications Inc.

New sorbent materials for solid-phase extraction (SPE), dispersive solid-phase extraction (dSPE), solid-phase microextraction (SPME), and other solid-liquid extraction methods continue to be developed both in academia and in the commercial sector. Here, we cover some areas of significant development, including molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs), dSPE for QuEChERS, nanomaterials, and mixed-mode and silicone monolith sorbents. © 2014 Advanstar Communications, Inc.

To achieve lower detection limits and better selectivity, researchers are always exploring new ways to enhance sample preparation and separation technology. The addition of electrical potential to existing technologies or for entirely new approaches is relatively unexplored but can create another dimension of selectivity in sample preparation. In addition, speed and sensitivity are added benefits. This installment looks at the use of electroenhancement to solid-phase extraction, solid-phase microextraction, and membrane and liquid extraction. © 2014 Advanstar Communications, Inc.
