Current Research Project

In February 2019 Christine joined the Trace Analysis working group and within the FluorTECH Project she develops chemical analytical methods for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in environmental matrices. With these methods the transfer- and transformation behaviour of technical PFAS, used for paper coatings, in laboratory and native environmental samples is investigated.
