Jan Petr Research Group

Welcome to Jan Petr Research Group!

We specialize in analytical chemistry, especially in capillary electrophoresis, mass spectrometry, and low-cost microfluidics. We focus on the development of new methods for chiral separations and for on-line preconcentration of analytes. We are interested in the connection of capillary electrophoresis with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry, and capillary electrophoresis with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. We also analyze the behavior of nanoparticles in capillary electrophoresis. In the field of microfluidics, we develop new low-cost microfluidic devices from paper, foil, plastics, and PDMS. We are also using 3D printing to design new microdevices.

We are looking for Postdoctoral fellows within the frame of Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action. The Czech Republic offers an interesting advantage – an additional funding of projects; probably more than 70% applicants will be funded! If you are interested, please, contact the lab head.

Our Microchemical Journal paper has finally been published: P. Švecová, D. Baron, K. A. Schug, T. Pluháček, J. Petr, Ultra-trace determination of oxaliplatin impurities by sweeping-MEKC-ICP-MS. Microchemical Journal 172 (2022) 106967.

Daniel Baron left the group for a postdoc at University of California in Berkeley, USA. He will join Prof. Amy Herr group.
