Laboratory of electroanalytical methods

Contemporary modern voltammetric methods and their hyphenation with liquid chromatography are of great importance in analysis of physiologically active compounds.

Our main fields of interest include:


- mechanism of redox transformations of natural phenolics, alkaloids, pharmaceuticals (antidiabetics, cancerostatics) as well as other biologically important compounds
- high-performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection (HPLC-ED) 
- on-line and off-line electrochemistry-mass spectrometry 
- utilization of novel electrode materials in HPLC-ED 
- utilization of conductivity, voltammetric and electrocapillary techniques for study of artificial biomembranes 
- development and applications of voltammetric paste electrodes 
- applications both voltammetric and coulometric methods for the assessment of total antioxidant activity 
- trace analysis of drugs and their metabolites in body tissues and electroactive organic pollutants in environment by HPLC with amperometric and coulometric detection 
- food analysis
