The Chemometrics and Advanced Separations Team (CAST) is a small group of enthusiasts within the analytical research groups of the Center of Analytical Sciences Amsterdam (CASA), which is a collaboration between the University of Amsterdam and VU University in Amsterdam. The majority of its members spends a bit of time on the development of advanced separation systems and/or chemometric tools for use in separation sciences. The common thread is that in each of these cases the results and developed tools of the studies will be embedded into the MOREPEAKS program. Aside from providing information on the latest research by the team, the website also intends to provide a useful repository on the application and theory of multi-dimensional liquid chromatography.
As part of the repository, the website also holds 2DLCdatabase.com, a large 2D-LC method database in collaboration with Dwight Stoll from the Gustavus Adolphus College.
