Hyphenated analytical methods (high performance separation techniques - LC and CE with mass spectrometric detection - ICP MS and ESI MS) in ecotoxicology and cultural heritage preservation: examination of metal traces migration in body fluids, environmental speciation analysis, identification of natural products (organic dyes, pigments, binding media) in easel or panel paintings as well as metal traces in canvas paintings, polychromed sculptures and others.
Chemical separation and preconcentration methods in environmental analysis.
Trace analysis: sensitive chromatographic and spectrophotometric methods for the determination of metal ions and small inorganic species (e.g. fluoride, hydrogen peroxide) based on ternary systems with azo reagents, basic dyes and other chelating reagents. Derivative spectrophotometry in inorganic analysis.
