Analytical Chemistry research group


The Analytical Chemistry research group is involved in several research topics listed in the following subsections. The group is available to receive Master of Science students (e.g. Erasmus), Ph.D students, post-doc, etc., who are willing to perform analytical chemistry researches. Instruments, computers and rooms/laboratories are offered as facilities.

For more details about the research topics, the interested readers can refer to the available links, which either describe some research activities in deeper details, or give publication examples of the group.
