Research interests:

   • Organic reagents and their complexes immobilized by adsorption on the surface of high-dispersed silica

   • Chemistry of the interface: "modifying agent solution/silica surface" and "metal salt solution/modifying agent immobilized on silica"

   • Analytical and complexing properties of the solid-phase reagents as a function of the sorbent surface properties, the nature of the modifier and the mechanism of its fixing on the surface

   • Development of the hyphenated spectroscopic methods using:

      - molecular spectroscopy technique,
      - luminescent and chemiluminescent technique,
      - AAS and ETAAS-spectroscopy (solid-phase ETAAS in particular),
      - kinetics methods,
      - gel-penetration chromatography,
      - electrochemical technique.

   and new solid-phase reagents for:

      - speciation of heavy metals and biometals in natural waters,
      - rapid and simple (including visual-test) determination of various toxicants (heavy metal ions and some organic compounds), antioxidants and bioactive elements in the environmental objects (water, soil, etc.), biological liquids, food, medical, etc.
