Dr. Rastislav Serbin (Invited Speaker)
Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, Slovak Republic
Biography:Dr. Rastislav Serbin is a scientist and teacher at Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, Faculty of Science, Department of Analytical Chemistry in Slovak Republic and is responsible for development of new and effective analytical methods for determination of number of analytes. He focuses on new compounds and materials which can be used in analytical chemistry. He specializes on spectral detection techniques and optical sensors. His main task of research is to minimalize expanses, time of analysis and used volumes of solvents and to maximize efficiency of developed methods. He also cooperates on some projects and manages some international agreements between universities and other research workplaces.
Title of Speech: Basic red 12 as a highly potent organic material used in analytical chemistry
Abstract: Basic red 12 (BR12) 1,3,3 – trimethyl – 2 - [3 - (1,3,3-trimethyl-1,3-dihydroindol -2 - yliden) -propyl1,3-dienyl]-3H-indolium chloride is an organic agent belonging to the organic basic dyes. It’s commonly used in textile industry. At our department we showed other potential of this dye. BR12 is highly potent analytical agent for determination of some very important analytes (f. e. diclofenac, some surfactants, Au, Pd, Pt and other).
