ML96Marcello Locatelli PhD (University "G. d' Annunzio" of Chieti-Pescara, Chieti, Italy).
is professor and his research activity is aimed at the development and validation of chromatographic methods for the qualitative and quantitative determination of biologically active molecules in human and animal, cosmetics, food, and environmental complex matrices. These procedures have been applied to different analytes and drug associations also finding application in clinical and pre-clinical studies, to characterize new delivery systems of the active principle to improve their pharmacological properties. In the development of the method are applied predictive models and chemometric both for the optimization of extraction protocols and for final data processing. Particular attention is given to the innovative (micro) extraction techniques and new instrumental configurations for complex matrix quantitative analysis. More than 89 manuscripts, 87 congress communications, 1 patent subject to approval, 9 book chapters and 2 books, and guest editor for 5 special issues attested scientific activity (based on Scopus (12nd of February 2018), h-index 19).

AK96x128Abuzar Kabir PhD (Florida International University, Miami, USA).
is a Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. His research focusses on the synthesis, characterization and applications of novel sol-gel derived advanced material systems in the form of chromatographic stationary phases, surface coatings of high-efficiency microextraction sorbents, nanoparticles, microporous and mesoporous functionalized sorbents, molecularly imprinted polymers for analyzing trace and ultra-trace level concentration of polar, medium polar, nonpolar, ionic analytes, heavy metals, and organometallic pollutants from complex sample matrices. His inventions, fabric phase sorptive extraction (FPSE), and dynamic fabric phase sorptive extraction (DFPSE), capsule phase microextraction (CPME), molecular imprinting technology, superpolar sorbents, In-Vial microextraction (IVME) have drawn global attention. He has developed and formulated numerous high efficiency sol-gel hybrid inorganic-organic sorbents based on Silicon, Titanium, Zirconium, Tantalum, Germanium chemistries. Dr. Kabir has authored 16 patents, 9 book chapters, 52 journal articles and 90 conference papers.
