Chemical hazards pose immediate and long-term threats to the nationís security. Our research is focused on developing a real-time, remote sensor and rapid, quantitative GC/MS measurements of environmental pollutants, pesticides in food as well as explosives and chemical warfare agents.

Profiling food, beverages, and flavors by automated 2-dimensional chromatography (GC-GC, LC-LC, and LC-GC) is aimed at identifying those compounds that contribute to sensory perception, product shelf-life, quality control, and safeguarding brand equity.

An overview of the technologies developed and employed is described here.
