Research

The main focus of our research group is to develop analytical methods for:

  • monitoring chemical pollutants, which negatively affect public health and the environment (air, water, soil and sediment media) and investigating the efficiency of possible removal/remediation techniques for these compounds,
  • measuring/monitoring drugs in pharmaceutical products and biological media (in-vitro and in-vivo),
  • analyzing flavors/off-flavors and toxic compounds (e.g. pesticides and preservatives) in food samples, 
  • analyzing organic compounds such as fragrances emitted from living flowers and plants.

The analytical techniques and instrumentations being used are solvent-free sampling/sample preparation techniques such as solid phase microextraction and needle trap devices, coupled to gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC); as well as spectroscopic instruments.
