About the Author

Professor Tibor Cserhati, Chemical Research Centre, Research Institute of Materials and Environmental Chemistry, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest, HungaryGraduated in Chemical Engineering in 1962 and received his PhD in 1973 from the Technical University of Budapest. From 1975 - 1988 he was a senior research scientists at the Plant Protection Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and from 1989 scientific counsellor at the Central Research Institute for Chemistry. He is the author/coauthor of more than 500 papers and 5 books. His main fields of interest are various chromatographic methods including TLC, GC and HPLC and the application of multivariate methods for the evaluation of chromatographic data.
