Profile Information

The workgroup Element and Speciation Analysis deals with three topics: development of new analytical techniques for element and trace element analysis and investigation of problems in environmental and material sciences, speciation analysis, operation of a laboratory for order analysis. Topics in the development of new analytical techniques for element and trace element analysis are sample digestion, element concentration and matrix separation with focus on microwave techniques, hyphenated methods with CSAAS, ICP-OES and ICP-MS with focus on high performance sample introduction systems, fundamental studies in atomic spectrometry and ICP-MS. Research in Speciation Analysis is dedicated to environmental sciences. The development of trace analytical methods for the investigation of the environmental behaviour of actinides and long lived fission products in the geo- and hydrosphere is part of our research as well. The laboratory for order analysis is a high tech lab for element analysis of organic and inorganic sample materials with state of the art equipment like microwave assisted sample preparation, CSAAS, ICP-OES, ICP-MS, RFA and IC.
