Product Safety and Analytics

Our work involves evaluating the interactions between polymers and contact media. We systematically study the transfer (migration/permeation) of chemical substances into contact media such as a packaged food or other packaged products. A key area of expertise is determination of diffusion and partition coefficients and subsequent modeling of the material transport processes. We also develop analytical methods for specific determination of substances in complex matrices (e.g. foods, packaging materials and their raw materials, biological samples, environmental samples, etc.). Our laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation.
