Brief summary of the activity
Mineralization/acid digestion, identification and quantification of major and trace inorganic elements in various matrices (water, soil, sediment, biological tissues) with analytical chemistry tools for support of scientific research programs in many fields (hydrogeology, chemistry, medicine, ecotoxicology…).
Steady development of analytical methods for the measurement of new elements in novel matrices; characterization and transfer in the food chain.

The analyzes or preparations

  • Mineralization:
    • Wet processing: digestion with hot acid medium in closed system under pressure (microwave) or at atmospheric pressure
    • Dry processing: calcination and solution treatment of mineral residue (ash) with acid
  • Analysis:
    • Major elements (Ca, Na, K, Mg, Si…) …); Applications: surface and ground water, industrial effluents…
    • Trace elements (Cd, Hg, As, Pb, Zn…); Applications: water, urine, animal matrices (liver, kidney, blood, hair, viscera snails…) and vegetable matrices (tree, fodder, plants…)…
    • Lanthanides; Applications: water, plant, soil…
    • Lead Pb isotopes (206Pb, 207Pb et 208Pb); Applications: water, peat…

List of devices

  • Mercury analyzer in solid state Courtage Analyses Services (AMA 254) with automatic sampler
