Department of Environmental Chemistry

The department provides analytical background for in-house research groups and students from the Technical University of Liberec as well as for external scientists and industrial customers.


The department conducts research of nanostructured polymers for solid phase analytical extraction of pollutants, pharmaceuticals and their metabolites. The other pollutant related topic is the uptake and bioaccumulation of pollutants in microorganisms and plants.

A key research topic of the laboratory are lab-made SPME fibers. This concept is based on holders made by the combination of 3D printing and micro- metalworking followed by electrospinning of thermally stable polymers. Submicron sized fibres with nanoporous surface provide quick sorption of target analytes, e.g. organochlorinated pesticides.
