Marcel has a profoundly deep, life-long interest in chemistry. Awarded a Ph.D with highest honours in 1970, he has gone on to study associated scientific fields of interest, such as general inorganic and organic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, microbiology, spectro-chemistry and radioactive phenomena. Also of a practical nature, he has over thirty years of business experience regarding analytical laboratories, analytical services, analytical techniques, procedures and instruments; particularly with regard to metals/minerals, mineral/crude oils and environmental testing.
