Research topics

  • Investigation of thermally induced reactions of various materials such as plastics, biomasses or coal at the molecular level using instrumental-analytical methods
  • Investigation of the suitability of technical solutions for obtaining chemical products by pyrolysis, e.g. obtaining monomers or structurally similar compounds from plastics
  • Analysis of complex organic mixtures, such as fuels (gasoline, kerosene), tar or oil, using high-resolution chromatographic and mass spectrometric methods (including comprehensive gas chromatography, GCxGC-MS)
  • Application of chemometric methods to evaluate complex data sets from analytical determination methods
