Sample preparation techniques for highly polar substances are still in the modern-day field of analytical chemistry seriously limited compared to what is available for apolar substances. Electromembrane extraction (EME) is a technique that since its establishment in 2006 have gained much attention and shown great potential for selective extraction of apolar and moderately polar substances. We are now taking the first steps towards developing EME systems for extraction of the highly polar class of substances.

The research is very conceptual and include the following activities: 

  • Development of stable and robust systems for electromembrane extraction of highly polar drugs and endogenous metabolites. 
  • Understand on a fundamental level the mechanisms of successful (and unsuccessful) transfer of highly polar substances across a supported liquid membrane (SLM) under the influence of an electric field.
  • Characterization of matrix effects in EME of highly polar substances, and development of strategies to overcome such matrix effects.
