Research concerns the development and initiation of novel and highly sensitive techniques for trace determination/element speciation in key areas of chemical analysis. Sample introduction/ presentation and on-line reaction chemistry are key themes. Microcolumn flow injection systems provide a new route for enhancing performance in ICP emission and mass spectrometry, a particular success being the capability to speciate and determine toxic trace elements in environmental systems.
Laser ablation is becoming an increasingly important analytical tool for spatial and depth profiling studies in addition to providing bulk analysis data. Studies are in progress to develop new measurement strategies for strategic materials, e.g. thin films, polymers, clean steels. Most recently laser ablation has been used as the interface between gel electrophoresis and ICP mass spectrometry in order to provide a new strategy for studying metal protein interactions.
Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the work there is collaboration with the Departments of Chemical and Process Engineering, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Medicine. The Centre is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment having partnership agreements with leading instrument manufacturers.
