Deals with biodegradability of organic substances with respect to their structure and related evaluation of ecological suitability of various commercial products, namely various surfactants of anionactive and nonionogenic nature as well as cationactive detergents contained for instance in washing and cleaning agents. This area is closely related to cooperation with industry in developing environment friendly products. Other areas of interest include issues related to correct analytical determination of total organic substances (CHSK, TOC, BSK) and group determination of anionactive, noniogenic and cationactive detergents; adjustments of analytical methods in hydroanalysis, correct assessment of research results by applying statistical methods and proper laboratory procedures; implementing tests of biodegradability in practice.

Cooperates with a number of companies as a lecturer, advisor and expert.

Research projects:

  • Biodegradability testing of products, methods, interpretation of results and proposed limits
  • Surfactants Analytics
  • Chemical structure and biodegradability of complexing agents
  • Resistance ecologically important alkylfenylpolyethylenglykolether-surface-active substances and intermediates in the aquatic environment
  • Determination and biodegradability of substances dangerous for the environment in the hydrosphere
