This contractors meeting was an opportunity for an exchange of research results and perspectives amongst chemical scientists with interests in chemical separations. The "workshop” nature of this meeting was emphasized as opposed to either a “review” or a professional society meeting. The workshop presentations did more than discuss progress; we hope the discussions of challenges faced in the research of each participant was helpful in providing some indications and implications regarding opportunities for the future. We hope we provided a forum for open discussion and exchange of information on problems as well as on progress. The Separations and Analysis Program is driven by questions posed by members of the scientific community. Spirited discussions of problem areas marked the workshop as an unqualified success!
