  Information - SSS14 New frontiers in soil chemical analysis

Event Information
Soil is an extremely heterogeneous environmental matrix made up of a complex mixture of a wide range of organic and inorganic components. Solving and deciphering such a complexity is a challenging task for analytical chemistry. The development of new analytical techniques and methods, often devised in other scientific fields, are providing soil scientists with innovative and powerful tools to shed light on a wide number of processes in soil. In this context, the combination of advanced technologies and interdisciplinary research is necessary to the development and the future of soil science.
This session will focus on recent advances in analytical methods and technologies and their applications in the field of soil science, including:
- Synchrotron radiation based methods;
- Microprobe and nanoprobe analysis;
- Nuclear and magnetic methods;
- X-ray spectroscopy and diffraction;
- Mass Spectrometry;
- Radiochemical methods and isotopic analysis;
- Sensors and biosensors;
- Molecular and atomic spectroscopies;
- Hyphenated techniques;
- Electrochemical methods;
- Methods of sample preparation and separation.
