A new technology is making the work of Charles W. Gehrke more available. Two years after his death, one of the books he edited is now available through Amazon.com in a Kindle version.

Charles would have loved it.

Charles started as a boy working in farm fields, growing everything from potatoes to melons, but he never shirked an opportunity to embrace technology. During his career as a scientist, he went from simple, wet chemistry to chromatography and along the way analyzed everything from farm soil to moon rocks. Only weeks before his death in 2009, he launched this website.

Now, his book, Chromatography A Century of Discovery 1900-2000: The Bridge to the Sciences/Technology is available through Amazon.com in a Kindle version. The book, edited by Charles and his long-time colleagues Robert Wixom and Ernst Bayer, is available by clicking here.

Charles spent his life dedicated to discovering the next new discovery and sharing that information. This next step of making his work even more available would have pleased Charles to no end.

It is a unique and invaluable resource for researchers, students, and other interested readers who seek a broader understanding of this field.”

The other news release was distributed by Reuters and the article was posted on CNBC.com.

A book Charles W. Gehrke published in 2001 is on sale on eBay for $865.14 U.S. dollars. The book is being offered by an Australian vendor at $896.95 Australian dollars.

While science moves at lightning speed, the work Charles highlighted in the book, “Chromatography: A Century of Discovery 1900-2000,” is still valuable.

You can bid on the book by going here.

Charles’s work lives on.
