Applied chemistry and analytics

Applied chemistry research conjoins biochemistry, organic and inorganic, and analytical chemistry expertise. We create novel solutions for problems in pharmacy and medicine as well as in environmental sciences. We utilize chromatography, mass spectrometry and NMR spectoscopy to create analytical methods for biological and chemical samples. We develop both targeted and non-targeted high-throughput metabolic profiling protocols to shed light on biological processes. 

Research areas:

  • Polyamine and bisphosphonate research
  • Development and validation of analytical methods
  • Quantitative NMR spectroscopy applications in chemical and environmental analysis
  • Metabolic profiling of biological samples with mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy
