Affiliation: Institute of Analytical Chemistry and Radiochemistry, CCB-Center for Chemistry and Biomedicine, Leopold-Franzens University, Innsbruck, Austria
Research Topics: Near Infrared and molecular spectroscopy, bioanalysis, phytopharmaca, material science
Huck Lab is developing novel analytical approaches based on molecular spectroscopy (NIR, MIR, 2D-COS, Raman) with main focus on near-infrared (NIR). The lab has excellent knowledge in a broad field of analytical methodologies including chromatography/electrophoresis (LC, µ-LC, GC, CE, CEC), mass spectrometry (ESI, Q-TOF, MALDI) and selective sample enrichment procedures (SPE) used as a reference method. Beside multivariate data analysis, quantum chemical calculations, also bioninformatics is applied to get deeper insights into the diversity and inter-relation of spectral data. Samples of interest taken into consideration comprise biomolecules including also phyto relevant active ingredients and different materials.
