Organic Chemical Measurement Science Group

The Organic Chemical Measurement Science Group is responsible for developing, critically evaluating, and applying liquid chromatographic, gas chromatographic, and mass spectrometric techniques for the identification and measurement of organic species in a variety of matrices.

Organic Chemical Measurement Science Group

Efforts are directed toward applications in clinical chemistry, environmental chemistry, food and nutrition, and forensics and homeland security, and include sample types such as tissues and biological fluids, air particulate matter and sediments, foods and dietary supplements, energetic materials, and pure substances (i.e., reference standards). Measurement services are provided through the development of definitive and reference methods, Standard Reference Materials (SRMs), and quality assurance programs.
