The Aarhus Centre for Analytical Chemistry, Atmosphere and Climate, (AC)3, research group is the analytical chemistry group at Aarhus University.
We develop and apply chemical analyses to investigate, e.g.:
As an analytical chemist, time is spent in the lab, preparing samples and standard solutions, obtaining data using analytical instruments, including our own ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) coupled to mass spectrometry (LC-MS), gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and ion chromatography (IC). For more information see instruments/equipment.
Much time is also spent interpreting and analyzing data, and applying statistics in order to validate the results.
