Environmental Chemistry Lab
Key research areas
Environmental status of marine ecosystems
The Environmental Chemistry laboratory is fully equipped:
- to carry out measurements of organic carbon, chlorophyllous pigments and nutrients, using up-to-date instrumentation such as fluorometer, spectrophotometer, centrifuge, centrifugal ball mill, laboratory drying oven, CHNS 2400 elemental analyser and a 5-Channel nutrients analyser.
- to investigate marine pollutants with the measurement of organic compounds (e.g. pesticides, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, algal pigments, amino acids) using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry and High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography systems.
