Welcome to the
Institute of Hydrochemistry
Chair of Analytical Chemistry and Water Chemistry
Director: Prof. Dr. Martin Elsner
We cover a broad spectrum of analytical methods and measurement techniques for Chemistry, Geology, Physics, Biology and Chemical Engineering.
New methods are pushed forward from principles testing to commercializable prototypes and reagents.
The main research topics are nanoparticles, laser spectroscopy, Raman microspectroscopy, microarray technology, hydrogeology and bioanalytics.
Furthermore, the institute fulfills its examing and consulting tasks through exploration and utilization of drinking, processed, thermal and mineral water.
