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
The main scientific contribution of our research program is the development of new analytical methods, processes and knowledge, which are published in the international scientific journals. In the years 2009 to 2014, our research group has published 127 articles mainly in the SCI journals. More than half of the articles were published in journals that are important in the field of analytical, environmental and material chemistry. The research results were reflected in the deepening of knowledge of employees of the Department, which is a necessary prerequisite for quality teaching and knowledge transfer to the graduates, masters and doctoral students. Our research group has numerous international connections. In addition to the collaborations within the international projects we had a lot of informal contacts with many universities and research institutions. We believe that our research will contribute to science, both domestically as well as internationally.
Significance for the country
The majority of researchers of the program group are actively involved in undergraduate and graduate education programs at UL FKKT , which means that they directly contribute to the education and training of specialized personnel as well as develop basic and applied knowledge, which is essential for the development and progress of the analytical chemistry in our environment. Most of our graduates, master and doctoral students who completed their education within our group have successfully transferred their knowledge and expertise to the industry or research institutions. Direct transfer of knowledge in the field of analytical chemistry took place as well since some members of our program group actively participated with Slovenian pharmaceutical industry in the elaboration and validation of the analytical procedures for some of their needs. This cooperation has recently strengthened and has contributed to the technological progress of Slovenia. A significant part of our research has been focused on solving the problems of the environment and safe and healthy food. Our research has been focused on the transfer and accumulation of pollutants in soil, sediments, rivers and in the air. We acquired the necessary knowledge needed by the legislator to make decisions concerning the protection of our living environment. We emphasize in particular our research in the field of aerosol particles, which currently represents one of the major environmental problems in Slovenia and beyond. An important aspect of any country is protection of its cultural heritage. Thus, the research related to the investigation of materials related to cultural heritage greatly contributes to the international recognition of Slovenian researchers. The proposed nondestructive analytical procedures are directly oriented to the preservation of cultural heritage and many of them are already used for stabilization and conservation of valuable documents of our cultural heritage.
