Analytical Chemistry

Environmental or industrial samples contain thousands of compounds in complex mixtures and it is often unknown which compounds are of interest in a given situation. In analytical chemistry we aim at analyzing all compounds present in a matrix to get a better understanding of environmental, industrial and green chemistry processes.

We perform basic research in advanced analytical chemistry and develop novel analytical platforms such as GCxGC-MS and LC-ICP-MS as well as strategies for automated signal processing such as pixel-based analysis of multidimensional data. We apply this for target analyses, suspect screenings and non-targeted chemical fingerprinting of any sample matrix.

We collaborate extensively with the industry and teach at all levels in basic and advanced analytical chemistry.
