  • Laboratory concentrates on development of new polarographic, voltammetric and chromatographic methods for determination of biologically active organic compounds, which are significant from the
    - environmental
    - medical
    - pharmaceutical
    - toxicological
    point of view.

    At present, we are working on problems of nitrated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, especially on their determination by polarography, voltammetry and liquid chromatography. We are attend to application of mercury electrodes and carbon paste electrodes in the trace analysis of biologically active compounds.

    We cooperate with several institutions, some of them you can visit through WWW:

  • International Agency for Research on Cancer, Lyon, France

  • National Cancer Institute, USA

  • Loughborough University, UK

  • Center for Ecology, Toxicology, and Analysis/Research Institute of Organic Syntheses, Pardubice, Czech Republic

  • CESTEH/FIOCRUZ, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • In cooperation with MERCK, Prague, demonstration laboratory of liquid chromatography was founded.
