Gdańsk University of Technology Poland

Massoud Kaykhaii is a full professor of analytical chemistry, working at Politechnika Gdańska (Poland) as a scholar scientist. From Oct 1989 to June 2021 he was professor at the University of Sistan and Baluchestan (Iran). His research work is focused on modern sample preparation techniques including µ-solid phase extraction, solid phase microextraction, liquid phase micro-extraction and stir bar sorptive extraction. He has published 150 research articles; 3 patents; presented ca. 150 seminars/conferences; authored three books, wrote 22 national standard procedures of analysis, and (co)supervised 117 MSc and PhD theses. He taught almost all courses in analytical chemistry and worked extensively on analysing ultra-trace amounts of different analytes in various matrices such as environmental, food and clinical samples by using SPME (including conducting polymers and colloidal particles), flat sheet supported membranes (MESI), and single drop microextraction; employing GC-MS, HPLC, IC, TLC scanning and all spectroscopy instruments. He has invented two new sample preparation techniques: salt-saturated single-drop microextraction, and micro cloud point extraction. He is a member of the editorial advisory board of 98 journals and acted as secretary of three national mirror committees of ISO/TC for years. He finished 25 industrial projects and has been counsellor in 10 companies in Iran. In 2009, 2017 and 2020 he was awarded the prize of best researcher of the USB. Publons recognized him four times as "top 1 percent of top reviewers". He was head of the Chemistry Department and the chairman of Smartphone Analytical Sensors Research Centre. His current research is focused on modern applications of deep eutectic solvents.

Despite having powerful software, microchips, and solid-state detectors that enable analytical chemists to achieve fast, stable, and accurate signals from their instruments, sample preparation is the most important step in chemical analysis. Issues can arise at this step for various reasons, including a low concentration of analytes, incompatibility of the sample with the analytical instrument, and matrix interferences. This volume discusses the basics of sample preparation and examines modern techniques that can be used by both novice and expert analytical chemists. Chapters review microextraction, surface spectroscopy analysis, and techniques for particle, tissue, and cellular separation.
