Chemical analysis laboratory

The Laboratório de Análises was created in 2002 to offer analytical support to the Laboratório Associado para a Química Verde – Associated Laboratory for Green Chemistry at REQUIMTE – Network of Chemistry and Technology, to other higher education, research units, and companies, as well as those that are interested in the available services. The main propose of the Laboratory is to support research, providing infrastructure and knowledge for science and innovation. This framework allows the development of analytical methodologies in a wide spectrum of areas.
