The research at the Analytical Chemistry is focused on three main areas:
- Electroactive materials
- Chemical sensors
- Process and environmental analytical chemistry
Basic electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical characterization of conducting polymers and other electroactive materials provides knowledge for further applications in chemical sensors, solar cells, fuel cells and batteries. Our research on chemical sensors is focused mainly on the development and characterization of all-solid-state ion-selective electrodes for applications in clinical diagnostics, environmental monitoring and process analysis. We have also studied automated on-line extraction and analysis of metals in solid samples, while inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is used to determine trace elements in liquid and solid samples.
