The Institute of Environmental Research (INFU) was founded in 1972. In 2010 the institute was integrated into the faculty of chemis- try including the chair of analytic chemistry and environmental chemistry. INFU initiates, promotes and carries out inter•disciplinary research projects in the field of environmental research, analytical chemistry and chemical microbiology.
We study the fate and effects of xenobiotics in the terrestrial and aquatic environment. Focuses are sources, inputs, persistence, transformation and metabolism as well as toxic effects of pollutants in the respective compartments. Within these projects new analyti- cal procedures are elaborated and validated to identify and quantify analytes that are not included in standard protocols. Of special interest are compounds for which no or no sufficient regulations exist. Furthermore, we are involved in natural product chemistry of plants originating from tropical and subtropical areas and associat- ed microorganisms producing secondary metabolites with biological activity.
