Welcome to the Stable Isotope Analysis Group

We advance compound-specific isotope analysis for the measurement of isotope ratios inside organic compounds at their natural isotopic abundance. Our goal is to track compounds from different sources, to detect natural transformation of organic compounds and to pinpoint chemical transformation mechanisms in environmental and technical systems. Through analytical innovation we aim to contribute to a better management of chemicals in the environment, to characterizing natural attenuation and to optimizing turnover in technical systems.
