5th Workshop on Field-Flow Fractionation – Mass Spectrometry (FFF-MS)

28-29 September 2017, Vienna, Austria


Nanoparticle analysis in environmental- & life sciences as well as consumer products

Organized by University of Vienna, Austria, Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research -  UFZ Leipzig, Germany and The German Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG), Germany

The 5th Workshop on Field Flow Fractionation and Mass Spectrometric techniques (FFF-MS) will focus on the analysis of nanoparticle in environmental- & life-sciences as well as consumer products. It is organized as cooperation between the University of Vienna (Department of Environmental Geosciences), Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research -  UFZ (Department of Analytical Chemistry, Leipzig, Germany) and the Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG, Department G2 - Aquatic Chemistry, Koblenz, Germany). It is designed for PhD students and scientist who are working the field of colloid and nanomaterial analysis.

Part I (first day – free of charge) will start with 2-3 survey lectures given by experts in the field followed by scientific presentation of the attendees, discussions and a session with interactive elements. In order to guarantee optimal conditions during the workshop it is restricted to a maximum of 30 participants (application required).

Part II of the workshop (second day – 280 €) is optional and will contain practical lab work. The University of Vienna (Environmental Geosciences) has several FFF systems (flow and centrifugal) and on-line coupled detectors (e.g., SLS, DLS, ICP-MS) available where users can collect practical experience and further discuss existing problems (restricted to: 15 participants, application required). Further information on registration and the program will be available soon on.

The FFF-MS workshop is financially supported by the NORMAN network and set in the framework of the “WG4” of the “NORMAN network - engineered nanomaterials” - Task Group II “The Analytical Toolbox”
