Virtual Symposium – Mass Spectrometry in Environmental Science

23 April

Mass spectrometry is a critical player in environmental analysis facilitating the sensitive, large scale profiling of chemicals such as pollutants, toxic agents and pharmaceuticals in complex matrices from nature. These substances often have detrimental effects on sustainability and global health.

The annual symposium of the SMSS will therefore this year focus on the recent advances of MS in environmental science. The SMSS is proud to present key international and national experts within the field both from academia and industry.


Fees: Free of charge
