About the event

«Compound-specific isotopic analysis for investigating the fate of organic contaminants in the environment» - lecture of the invited scientist for students, masters, postgraduate students and staff of the Faculty of Science.

Faina Gelman - Senior researcher and In charge of the Environmental Organic laboratory, Israel, author of more than 50 works and 4 international grants in the area of analytical, organic and green chemistry.

Attenuation of organic pollutants in the environment may occur through degradative and/or non-degradative transformations. Degradation of the contaminant as a result of biological or chemical processes may result in its mineralization in transformation to other organic compounds. However, in some cases, the degradation products may be even more dangerous than the initial contaminant. In their research projects group of Dc. F.Gelman develop and apply multi-elemental isotope analysis for investigating the fate of organic contaminants in the environment. In the focus of their research are groundwater contaminations by gasoline hydrocarbons, brominated hydrocarbons, and chlorinated hydrocarbons.

Place: audience 102, st. Ordzhonikidze, 3, building of the Faculty of Science
