As an academic research group whose primary goal is basic research in the field of analytical chemistry and education/qualification of experts, we intend to widen and deepen our knowledge in the primary field of interest and to transfer the knowledge to disciplines and research fields needing accurate chemical data on structure and processes, be it for their own progress or for the common benefit. Our research will therefore be directed primarily towards: a) research into new analytical methods and procedures, b) studies of processes and parameters determining properties of inorganic and organic materials, c) development of analytical methods for industry, environment, medicine and food chemistry.
Significance for science
In the period 2004-2008 members of the programme group published 104 original scientific articles, and some of them issued in most distinguished journals on the field of analytical science. They delivered also numerous lectures at international scientific conferences and meetings, edited two scientific monographs in English language and contributed in 15 chapters of scientific monographs. Research in the field of paper and iron gall ink chemistry results in numerous important achievements. Investigations of cellulose degradation and historical ink corrosion performed and coordinated also in the frame of 5th and 6th FW EU projects (Papylum, InkCor, MIP, SurveNir, PaperTreat), results in numerous excellent achievements and were internationally recognized (see: J. Wouters, Science, 332(2008)1197). These achievements contribute significantly to paper conservation science and to the global protection of cultural heritage.
Significance for the country
As an academic research group majority of team members actively participate in teaching and education of chemists and chemical engineers at undergraduate and graduate level at University of Ljubljana and therefore contributed permanently to a sustainable socio-economic and cultural progress in Slovenia. In the period between 2004 and 2008 programme group members supervised 122 Diploma theses and/or co-supervised 9 Master and 22 PhD theses. Such a transfer of basic and specific knowledge and research experience to the marked part of Slovenian technical intelligence is an important contribution to the economic progress in Slovenia. A significant part of the research tasks was oriented towards development of the analytical methodology for polution monitoring and control of the environment (volatile hydrocarbons, pesticides, metals, …), food analysis (toxins, antioxidants, aroma constituents, ....) and analysis of pharmaceutical formulations, and this research adds a significant value to the general and technological advance in Slovenia and wider. Especially achievements and research of degradation and preservation of paper and historical documents and materials contributed significantly to the protection and preservation of Slovenian cultural heritage and wider.
