Hopping mode SECM imaging of redox activity in ionic liquid with glass-coated inlaid platinum nanoelectrodes prepared using a heating coil puller


Martin had a small part in a recent paper accepted in the special issue of J. Electroanal. Chem. dedicated to Prof. Renata Bilewicz on her 65th birthday. The paper has a very descriptive title: Hopping mode SECM imaging of redox activity in ionic liquid with glass-coated inlaid platinum nanoelectrodes prepared using a heating coil puller.

The paper basically consists of two parts. One part that describes how to perform hopping mode SECM to be able to compensate for misalignment of the sample or topography effects during SECM scanning. The second part describes a reliable and reproducible method of preparing nanoelectrodes for SECM using a simple heating coil puller. The main part of the paper itself is a rather technical description of these techniques.

Most of the work for this publication was of course done by Wojtek Nogala and the students Magdalena Michalak and Justyna Jędraszko (who recently defended her PhD and is now working at the Nencki institute for experimental biology).
