AIM OF THE RESEARCH
Development of new analytical methods for detection and speciation of metal ions, organometals, metalobiomolecules as well as organic compounds in the marine environment and food samples.

MAIN TOPICS
  • Nanotechnological approaches for trace element analysis, speciation and metallomics in the environment.
    • Design of plasmonic and fluorescent nanosensors
    • Design of nanosorbents for preconcentration.
  • Studies of mobility, distribution, bioavailability and accumulation of metal species in environmental samples (soils, sediments, seawater).
  • Design of miniaturized analytical techniques for in situ detection of pollutants.
    • Development of microextraction approaches.
    • Development of microfluidic platforms for environment quality monitoring.
  • Green methods in Analytical Chemistry.
    • Use of microwaves, ultrasound and UV radiation in the previous operations of the analytical methodology
  • Applications of Atomic Spectrometry techniques for trace element analysis and speciation (ETAAS, HG-AAS, CV-AAS, AFS, ICP-OES, ICP-MS, TXRF).
  • Applications of chemometrics in combination with multielemental analysis techniques (ICP-MS; ICP-OES; TXRF) for establishing food authentification, and environmental pollution sources.
