Brief summary of the activity

  • Extraction, separation, identification and quantification of organic contaminants from various matrices (water, soil, sediment, biological tissues) with analytical chemistry tools for support of scientific research programs in environment and health-relevant areas.
  • Steady development of analytical methods for the measurement of organic compounds in novel matrices; characterization and transfer in the food chain.

The analyzes or preparations

  • Liquid liquid
  • Pressurized liquid extraction (PLE)
  • Microwave
