Analytical Chemistry

including its applications in Forensic Science

The analytical techniques used include liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, field-flow fractionation, mass spectrometry and chemometrics. Key applications include composition of complex (co-)polymers, characterization of long-chain branching in polymers, degradation of biomaterials, diagnosis of tuberculosis and the profiling of explosives and flame accelerants.

Major research projects include those the COMFOR project (sponsored by NWO, with the Netherlands Forensic Institute and the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics),  HYPERformance LC (TA-COAST/NWO project with DSM Resolve, ThermoFischer Scientific, AkzoNobel, Rikilt, Shell, Syngenta, TNO, Avantor Performance materials and the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen) and Chromametrics (TA-COAST/NWO project with DSM Resolve, the Netherlands Forensic Institute and Rikilt).
