Research Activities:

  • Development of new analytical methods basing on non-destructive micro-methods for researches in the field of plant breeding and cultivation
  • Qualitative and quantitative studies on local distribution of various plant constituents  in the organism as well as on cellular level
  • Analysis of tissue-specific accumulation of (secondary) metabolites for determination of breeding and harvest success
  • Determination of taxonomy of (unknown) plant cultivars and species by the help of their regio-, chemo- and genotypic specific composition of secondary metabolites
  • Development and implementation of mobile analytical systems for routine analytics “in the field”
  • Investigation of volatile components and thermic lable systems under usage on non-invasive fast methods
