Research interests

  •    Determination of trace amounts of inorganic and organic pollutants in the environmental objects (water, soil) using chromatographic, spectroscopic and electrochemical techniques.

  •   Synthesis of modified with organic reagents and biomolecules porous sorbents, silica gel in particular using adsorption and sol- gel technique. Development on the base of obtained sorbents active elements of optical and electrochemical  sensors for the express  determination of heavy metal labile species and organic compounds  in natural and tap waters, biological  and pharmaceutical objects.

  •  Bioanalytical chemistry
