Short Curriculum Vitae: 
- Development of analytical method for determination of drugs in biological samples by immunological and chromatographic techniques. -Qualitative and Quantitative characterization of polymeric organic products, intermediates, additives and by-products, by mass spectrometry (MS), gas chromatography coupled to FTIR vapor detector, liquid chromatography (HPLC) with various detectors (electrochemical, spectrophotometric and refractive index detector). -Optimization of analytical methodologies for the determination and certification of organic compounds of interest in environmental chemistry Endocrine destructors (PCB, PAH and e OCP) in natural matrices from Antarctica, by hyphenated techniques GC/MS, GC/MS/MS, SFE/GC/MS and HPLC/SFE/GC/MS; Optimization of analytical methods for trace and ultra-trace elements (metals and anions) in aqueous samples from Antarctica by liquid chromatography (HPLC, IC and RPC coupled to on-line preconcentration systems. -Laboratory of Instrumental Analytical Chemistry. Analytical determination of trace and ultra-trace elements by liquid chromatography (LC); hyphenated techniques (LC-AFS); development of analytical methods. Development of a prototype of non dispersive atomic fluorescence spectrometer and optimization of a data acquisition system, study of mechanism of reaction between tetrahydroborate and elements which form volatile hydrides. Development and optimization of a hyphenated system LC coupled to non dispersive atomic fluorescence detector for the study of arsenic in wines and thiolic proteins. Development of a cell for pressure measurements equipped by a fast data acquisition system for the study of mechanism of reaction of tetrahydroborate decomposition and its derivates. Development and optimization of an analytical methodology (TD-GC-MS) for the study of the composition and determination of compounds in human breath and breath condensate as specific markers of several pathologies or indoor contamination of chemicals.
