Environmental Analytical Chemistry Laboratory

Analytical chemistry for monitoring the environment 

The conventional methods used to analyze environmental pollutants such as dioxins and hormone-disrupting chemicals are generally complicated and time-consuming. Another drawback is that samples of environmental pollutants have to be taken to a laboratory for analysis. However, a chemical sensor provides a simple way to measure the concentration of environmental pollutants by dipping the sensor into a sample solution. Our laboratory studies mainly concern the development of highly sensitive chemical sensors to rapidly and easily analyze environmental pollutants.

For Society

The microchemical analysis system that uses chemical sensors can be utilized for analyzing environmental and bio-related substances. It is an eco-friendly method of analysis because it requires small amounts of samples and discharges small amounts of waste liquids.
