Location: UFZ Leipzig, Germany

Target audience

PhD students with background and interest in pollution research

Contents

The lectures and practical excercises (computer) will provide basic rules and an insight into the methodology to identify toxicants in complex environmental mixtures with a focus on aquatic ecosystems. The course covers the role of effect-directed analysis in monitoring, effect-directed fractionation procedure and approaches for analytical toxicant identification. After a general introduction (2h) an in-depth discussion of analytical approaches (GC-MS, LC-MS) as well as on computer tools for non-target screening and structure elucidation will be given (2h). In the afternoon practical excercises at the computer will be offered to get familiar with computer tools for MS data evaluation, retention prediction etc.

Didactic aim

Understand basic principles of EDA and non-target analysis of complex environmental contamination
