Brief description Investment by the ARC, two WA universities, a government research agency, a CRC (and idirectly by a water utility) demonstrate the national need for this analytical facility and the broad commitment to maintain Australia's reputation in the field of analytical pyrolysis. An innovative laser micropyrolysis facility will be concurrently used with a recent commercially available unit to support research of present day and palaeo-environmental occurrences of OM, directly assisting an eclectic range of research activities including environmental protection and petroleum exploration. This facility will also aid the chemical fingerprinting of minute forensic evidence, ultimately helping to convict perpetrators of crime.
