themes highlighted in this review, and this was particularly true with detectors and field instruments.
Review articles appeared on subjects closely paralleling the previous format here, including highlights with multidimensional chromatography and extraction of information from chromato- graphic data among others. A noteworthy effort was a review of attempts toward creating unified chromatography, i.e., a single instrument supporting GC, LC, and SFC methods (A1). The long- standing interest in chromatography through specific retention principles was represented by a review of complexation gas chromatography and molecular recognition in separations (A2).
Significant amounts of research from the former eastern bloc nations have become conveniently available as translations, typified Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence by a review on physiochemical fundamentals of capillary gas chromatography (A3), where emphasis was given to retention High-Speed and Portable Gas Chromatography mechanisms. A third area of advance, that of data extraction from chromatographic information, was reviewed for artificial intel- ligence tools (A4) and multivariate mathematical models forevaluation of retention data matrixes (A5).

Miscellaneous chemiluminescene detectors were reported as The ability to combine GC detectors in a single analysis is a well. The determination of trace amounts of organic explosives, powerful approach for the investigation of complex mixtures and in which 0.2 ng of HMX was detected, was accomplished using a the identification of unknown compounds. The combinations of thermal energy analyzer (TEA) (I196). One detector, called the detectors shown in Table 3 were used in novel ways to solve sulfur chemiluminescene detector, was based on the principle of analytical problems during the past two years.

Application of the detector was reported for volatile sulfur postdoctoral fellow at the University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada) from1978 to 1980, and joined the faculty at NMSU in 1980. In 1987-1988, compounds in water, with a linear response from 10 to 100 µg/L he was a Senior Research Fellow at the U.S. Army Chemical Research Development and Engineering Center (Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD) I199). A selective chemiluminescene detector after GC was also and is a visiting lecturer at the Universidad Autonoma de Chihuahua applied to the detection of nitrogen compounds in crude and (Mexico). His research interests include the development of gas chro-matography for environmental analyses, the advancement of GC/ion refined petroleum fractions. This detector was based on initial mobility spectrometry for chemical separations, and the creation of pyrolysis combustion at 1100 °C in the presence of oxygen, chromatographic phases from natural materials such as clays. He teachesinstrumentation and electronics, quantitative analysis, and freshman followed by a luminescence reaction of the product NO with ozone.
