Research & Services | Environmental and Analytical Chemistry Laboratory

Prof. Lev Ovadia, HUJI, Faculty of Science, The Institute of Chemistry


Water processes, organo-sulfur compounds, analytical/bioelectrochemical diagnostic tools, sol-gel technology, organic-inorganic hybrids



  • The laboratory is active two major avenues of research:
  • Investigation of the formation of volatile organo-sulfur compounds in natural aquatic systems. These compounds affect cloud nucleation, ozone hole formation and global warming. Research is currently focused on the formation mechanisms of dimethylsulfide (DMS), its related substrates and carbonyl sulfide.
  • Development of analytical and bioelectrochemical diagnostic tools based on advanced materials and sol-gel technology for the production of glasses and metal oxides from colloidal solutions. Modified glasses are used for optical and electrochemical diagnostics.


  • The Laboratory of Environmental Chemistry is staffed by highly-trained, experienced researchers using the most up-to-date equipment and technologies

Available equipment

  • State-of-the-art chromatography equipment, including LC/MS and GC/MS
