Their interests and research projects include atomic spectroscopy, magneto-optic effects, optical polarimetry, instrumentation flow analysis systems, computer automation), chemometrics, acoustic emission analysis, speciation metal ions, organic pollutants), gas chromatography (support-bonded polymers, selective detectors, confirmation reactions), electro-chemistry, mass spectrometry (including coupling to various separation techniques, nuclear analytical chemistry (conventional, epithermal and cyclic neutron activation analysis), nuclear waste management, metallobiochemistry (bioavailability, nutritional studies, disease correlation with trace elements), and preconcentration methods.
However, the disciplines of molecular genetics and Zn metallobiochemistry have recently evolved conceptual frameworks and experimental approaches which potentially may provide the basis for understanding the biological essentiality of Zn (Falchuk and Vallee, 1985).
