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.

Charles never stopped working in the field he loved — chromatography — even decades after his 1987 official retirement.

Chromatography: A Science of Discovery was published in September 2010, more than a year after he died in February 2009.

The book was published by John Wiley and Sons, is 410 pages and carries a price tag of $99.95. It can be purchased online here.

The book is an invaluable resource, according to the Wiley website. The site describes the book as follows: “Features contributions from more than 50 award-winning chromatographers, Chromatography: A Science of Discovery offers a multifaceted look at the development and maturation of this field … With numerous reference and an engaging series of voices, Chromatography: A Science of Discovery offers a diverse look at an essential area of science. It is a unique and invaluable resource for researchers, students, and other interested readers who seek a broader understanding of this field.”

When announcing the publication of Charles’s book, his daughter Susan Gehrke Isaacson applauded the efforts of Drs. Deb Chance and Tom Mawhinney at the University of Missouri in getting the book through the publisher.

Contributors to the book also include Viktor G. Berezkin, Jaroslav Janak, Thomas L. Chester, Ernst Bayer, Walter G. Jennings, Ronald E. Majors, J. Jack Kirkland, Klaus K. Unger, Heinz Engelhardt, Gerhard Schomburg, William H. Pirkle, Christopher J. Welch, Daniel W. Armstrong, Jerker O. Porath, Jan B. Sjovall, David S. Hage, Pat Noland, Terry N. Hopper, Michael W. Dong, Yong Guo, Todd D. Maloney, Raymond N. Xu, Del Koch, Lyle Johnson, Pat Sandra, and Richard B. Van Breemen.
