- Measurement of the unbound fraction of biotoxic metallic cations in waters and effluents using electroanalytical methods with emphasis on copper, cadmium, zinc and lead at trace level using injection techniques.
- Diagnosis and resolution of corrosion problems involving metals and metal alloys exposed to humid atmospheres in contact with chemicals etc. in maritime or saline environments.
- Development of R&D projects in collaboration with enterprises to overcome and minimise problems resulting from environmental contamination and corrosion and to develop electrochemical sensors and biosensors for monitoring and diagnostics.
