Research Interests

Speciation of organometallic compounds, such as metalloproteins in biological samples, by use of chromato¬graphy to separate the compounds followed by detection of the metals with such techniques such as laser excited atomic fluorescence in a flame or graphite furnace, or inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). Also, we are studying various topics in laser ablation of samples for ultra-trace metals determinations; multi-element analyses by use of a tunable optical parametric oscillator laser system; improvements in the linear dynamic range of graphite atomic absorption measurements;
