(DY) CHEMISTRY, MULTIDISCIPLINARY
- radionuclides determination (Po, Pb, Gd, Ra, Cs, U, Th, Pu, Am) in food and diet supplements as well as in environmental samples;
- speciation, distribution and accumulation of radioisotopes in living organisms and their radiological effects;
- food as radioactive elements source;
- Chernobyl accident and other radiation events impact on the radioactive contamination
Structural studies of glycans and glycoconjugates isolated from various natural sources: gram negative bacteria, gram positive bacteria, fungi, plants and human tissues.
Main focus on biochemical characteristic of proteolytic enzymes using combinatorial chemistry methods. Design and synthesis of selective substrates of particular protease. Main interest: neutrophil proteases, diagnostic, molecular probes ect. Using our techniques we are able to characterized substrate specificity of any proteolytic enzyme. Also we are involoved in antimcrobial and immunostimulating peptides.
The aim of the scientific group is the development of multifunctional potentiometric sensors in solid state with membranes with the addition of nano particles. A secondary objective is to develop simple potentiometric sensors for the determination of chemical species of interest that would have improved properties. Improved sensor performance will be based on simpler preparation of samples for analysis (does not matter discoloration and turbidity of the sample), improved chemical, physical and electrical properties.
