Prof. Polettini has an extensive experience in the application of sophisticated analytical techniques (GC/MS, LC/MS, MS/MS, HRMS) to the bioanalysis of xenobiotics and their metabolites in biological and environmental (soil, water, food) matrices, as well as in the pharmacological and toxicological interpretation of analytical findings (interpretive toxicology).
 
His current research activity include:
 
  • Trace level (ppb or lower) analysis of xenobiotics in traditional as well as alternative biological matrices
 
  • Diagnosis of alcohol abuse through the analysis of ethyl glucuronide and ethyl sulphate in different biological matrices
 
  • Development of drug screening procedures in biosamples by LC-TOFMS
 
  • Toxicological interpretation of analytical results
 
The scientific activity of Prof. Aldo Polettini is attested by over 70 publications, the majority of them as first or last author, appeared in the most important journals of analytical chemistry, analytical toxicology and forensic sciences (Analytical Chemistry, Clinical Chemistry, Journal of Analytical Toxicology, Journal of Mass Spectrometry, Journal of Chromatography, Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry, Clinica Chimica Acta, Analytical Biochemistry, Journal of Forensic Sciences, Forensic Science International, British Medical Jounal, Molecular Pharmacology, Addiction, Alcoholism-Clinical and Experimental Research), including books and book chapters, and by his frequent attendance to international conferences where he is frequently invited to lecture on different topics of analytical and forensic toxicology.

Groppi, with the chapter on Ionisation, Ion Separation and Ion Detection in LC-MS. The book hosts contributions of the main experts in the field, such as Maciej Bogusz, Robert Kronstrand, Pierre Marquet, Hans Maurer, Laurent Rivier, and Detlef Thieme.
 
In 2012 he was invited to contribute to the 2nd edition of the Encyclopedia of Forensic Sciences (Toxicology Section), edited by Drs. Jay A. Siegel and Pekka Saukko, with a chapter on "Methods of Analysis-Confirmatory Testing".
 
Prof. Polettini has developed his research activity at an international level by collaborating with different renowned institutes such as the Joint Research Centre of the European Union (Ispra, Italy), the National Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection (Bilthoven, The Netherlands), the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology of the Municipal Institute for Medical Research (Barcelona, Spain), and the National Institute on Drug Abuse/IRP/NIH (Baltimore, MD).
 
He is member of The International Association of Forensic Toxicologists (TIAFT) since 1995 and from 2007 to 2018 he has been regional representative for Italy of the Association, In 2008 he received the TIAFT Achievement Award attributed to scientists for outstanding achievements in Forensic Toxicology, as a science, a profession, or both, during the first part of their career.
