Tadeusz H. Dzido
Tadeusz H. Dzido was born on December 16, 1950, in Ostrow Lubelski, Poland. He graduated at Maria Curie-Sklodowska University of Lublin, Poland, and obtained an M.S. degree in chemistry in 1973. He was then employed at the Department of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Faculty of the Medical Academy in Lublin, under tutelage of Professor Edward Soczewinski. His Ph.D. thesis (1980) was concerned with optimization of separation selectivity in thin-layer chromatography and high-performance liquid chromatography. In 1981, he started one-year stay in Professor Huber’s laboratory, Department of Analytical Chemistry, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria and, in 1987, seventeen-month scholarship of Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Professor Engelhardt’s laboratory, Department of Applied Physical Chemistry, University of Saarland, Saarbruecken, Germany. In 2003, he obtained the Habilitation degree. In the next year, he was nominated the Chairman of the Department of Physical Chemistry of the Pharmaceutical Faculty of the Medical University of Lublin. He is a Professor of the Medical University of Lublin. His research interest is concerned with mechanisms of solute retention and separation selectivity of liquid chromatography and electrochromatography systems. He is a designer of the horizontal DS chambers for planar chromatography. These chambers have been used worldwide. Presently, he is involved in development of a relatively new separation mode, which is named as pressurized planar electrochromatography (PPEC). Moreover, he is an Editor of the Journal of Planar Chromatography, a Member of the Advisory Board of Acta Chromatographica, and a Member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Chromatography Research International.
