Dear Chemistry Community:
On October 21, 2014, University of Tennessee, Knoxville Distinguished Scientist Georges Andre Guiochon passed away in the arms of his wife with his daughters holding his hands. After a successful bout against pneumonia, Professor Guiochon succumbed to neuromuscular failure due to Post-Polio Syndrome. His work as Professor in the Department of Chemistry since 1987 focused on the theory of non-linear chromatography and its applications in gas, liquid and supercritical fluid separation science. His UT efforts garnered awards too numerous to list but included 2 from ACS and the LCGC Lifetime Achievement Award, while he received honorary PhD degrees from the Universities of Pardubice, 1999; Ramon Llull, Barcelona 2002; Ferrara 2003; and Science and Technology, Liaoning 2010, and was inducted into the Spanish Academy of Science in 2011. He published 5 books and about 1100 peer-reviewed papers while performing research with over a hundred graduate students and post-docs.
