Dr. Schug’s research spans a wide range of analytical chemistry topics. These include the use of sample preparation, separation science, and various mass spectrometry and spectroscopy detection techniques. Related to sustainability efforts, Dr. Schug is the Director of the Collaborative Laboratories for Environmental Analysis and Remediation (CLEAR; http://clear.uta.edu) at U.T. Arlington, which is a consortium of researchers interested in developing analytical methods and remediation solutions for addressing industrial and anthropogenic impacts on the environment. Much of the current effort of CLEAr has been focused on the topic of unconventional oil and natural gas extraction. Multifaceted industrial processes including drilling, hydraulic fracturing, and waste handling are carefully considered.
Analytical techniques used extensively in the Schug laboratory include liquid chromatography – mass spectrometry, inductively-coupled plasma optical spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, supercritical fluid extraction – supercritical chromatography – mass spectrometry, gas chromatography – mass spectrometry, and gas chromatograph – vacuum ultraviolet spectroscopy (GC-VUV). For the latter technique, we are the leading research group in the world, and we have applied GC-VUV for many analysis of environmental relevance, including natural gas in water, off-gassing of toxic and flammable species from lithium ion batteries, petrochemicals, and environmental pollutants.
