Aim of the Organic Trace and Food Analysis division is to make an active contribution towards improvement of the quality of life by acquiring, evaluating and exploiting new analytical results. This includes in particular the development and validation of standardisable analytical methods as well as contributions to quality assurance such as development of certified reference materials and the performance of proficiency tests.
Our work is focused on trace analysis of organic pollutants in food, environmental matrices and consumer products. A current issue in this area is the quantification of priority contaminants by means of chromatographic methods. Increasing emphasis is placed on the identification of natural transformation products and non-target analysis for authenticity studies.
Our activities in the fields of R&D, metrology, standardisation and transfer of knowledge and technology are part of national and international networks.

|Summary||For more than five millennia metallic alloys have been serving as the backbone of civilization. Today >2 billion tons of metals are produced every year. The demand for some materials such as steels, aluminum and copper is expected to double or even triple by 2050. Metals require a lot of energy for their extraction, synthesis and downstream manufacturing, qualifying them as the largest single industrial source of greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption. The success of metals thus brings them into a position where they must play an important role in addressing the associated environmental challenges and the coming of a partially circular economy. The presentation discusses pathways for improving the direct sustainability of structural metals, in areas including reduced-carbon-dioxide primary production, recycling, scrap-compatible alloy design, contaminant-tolerance of alloys and improved alloy longevity. The lecture also discusses the effectiveness and technological readiness of individual measures, and also shows how novel structural materials enable improved energy efficiency.|
