The Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry was established in 1963 and is part of the Department of Physical, Analytical and Environmental Chemistry of the School of Chemistry in the Faculty of Sciences of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh). Today the Laboratory has seven Faculty members: Six Professors (Aristidis Anthemidis, Stella Girousi, Victoria Samanidou, George Theodoridis, George Zachariadis, Anastasia-Stella Zotou), and two Assistant Professors (Paraskevas Tzanavaras and George Tsogkas). Its function is also supported by 1 member of the Technical Staff (Foteini Zougrou, MSc Chemist). The main subject of the Laboratory's teaching and research is analytical chemistry, namely the development, validation and application of new analytical methods, as well as the exploration of new instrumental techniques and innovative materials used in chemical analysis. Within the framework of the educational services provided by the Laboratory, a number of courses are offered in the undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. Besides the students of the Department of Chemistry, students of other departments of AUTh are also trained. The main research fields served by the faculty members of the Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry, include:

The main research fields served by the faculty members of the Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry, include:
Various separation techniques: High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Gas Chromatography (GC). Ion Chromatography (HPΙC), Capillary electrophoresis (CE) as well as hyphenated ones using sequential injection (SI), Flow injection (FI), mass spectroscopy (MS) such as SI/FI-HPLC, SI/FI-CE, LC-MS, GC-MS, etc are used for method development to solve any analytical problem. The methods are subsequently validated and applied in bioanalysis, metabolomic analysis, pharmaceutical analysis, environmental and food analysis, forensics, dentistry, etc.
New sensitive and reliable analytical techniques with improved performance characteristics are developed and applied to the Archaeometric Analysis, Environmental Analysis, Bioanalysis, Food Analysis, etc. These techniques include Atomic Spectroscopy (FAAS, ETAAS, ICP-AES, AES) Techniques, Hyphenated techniques combining a separation technique with powerful and atom-selective detectors such as Mass Spectrometers, Inductively Coupled Plasma atomizers etx (SI/FI-HPLC, SI / FI-CE, LC-MS, GC-MS, LC-ICP etc), flow injection and other automated techniques (FIA, SIA, etc), Automated sample processing, plasma-based multi-element analytical techniques etc.
New sensitive analytical techniques with improved performance characteristics are developed and applied to Bioanalysis and Food Analysis. These techniques include Voltammetry, Ion Selective Electrodes, Potentiometry, Sensors and Biosensors.
New sample preparation protocols are developed based on the use of innovative materials (nanomaterials, polymers, graphite, sol-gel fabric phase media, magnetic sorbents etc.). These protocols are focused in specific analytical issues dealing with various matrices, target analytes and application fields. Prior to their use , they are validated and further applied to the analysis of biological samples, food samples, environmental samples etc.
