The principal research interests focus on two directions:
1) Molecular recognition based on supramolecular chemistry and its application to chemical sensors suitable for monitoring in clinicaldiagnostic and environmental protection, This direction links with new carriers for chemically modified field-effect transistors, membrane ion-selective electrodes, fibre-optic sensors sensitive to ions and neutral molecules. One of the most interesting topic is anion recognition, a rapidly developing field of supramolecular chemistry. In nature, the selective complexation of anions takes place by hydrogen bonds. I am focused on a novel type of neutral anion receptors consisting of a combination of a Lewis acidic center and fragments involving hydrogen bonds
2) Miniaturized analytical systems (Lab-on-a-Chip) for monitoring of bioanalytes. Emphasis is now also being laid on the applications of polymer microfabrication technologies to microchemical analysis, such as Lab-on-a-Chip and m(bio)electrochemical systems based on chemical reactions and/or various type of detection principle.
