The Minnesota Chromatography Forum is a scientific society committed to the advancement of chromatography. Since its founding in 1978, the MCF has provided area chromatographers with the opportunity to expand their knowledge in the separation sciences in a variety of ways.

Each year three evening sessions (typically fall, winter, spring) are held with invited speakers ranging from local experts to leading international chromatographers. In addition to the evening meetings, a three day Spring Symposium and Exposition is held in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.



MCF events are organized by volunteers from the MCF membership. The MCF needs your active participation to continue to offer a variety of interesting and informative programs. Members are encouraged to sign up for any of the following committees:  Education, Membership, Newsletter, or Symposium (Program, Exhibits, Facilities & Publicity).  A description of each committee and a sign-up sheet will be provided in the Spring Symposium program. Please become an active member of the Minnesota Chromatography Forum.
