Paper‐based electrochemical sensors and how to make them (work)

We just published a review-article in ChemElectroChem on paper-based electrochemical devices. Instead of a classic review of the published literature (of which there are plenty for paper-based devices) we opted to write a more practical guide for what to consider when making your first forays into the jungle of paper-based […]

Silver Island Film for Enhancing Light Harvesting in Natural Photosynthetic Proteins

And the next paper in the silver nanostructure series with our neighbours in the Surface Nanoengineering group and the Maćkowski group in Toruń. This time its a review of how Silver Island Films (SIFs) affect the properties of light-sensitive proteins. Here, experiments were done with proteins such as peridinin-chlorophyll-protein (PCP) or the Fenna–Matthews–Olson (FMO) complex, […]

Electrochemical reduction of 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane at the n-octyl pyrrolidone/water/electrode three-phase junction

Continuing our investigations of the behaviour of various redox probes at three-phase electrodes we have just published a paper looking at TCNQ (7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane) in a standard droplet-based setup. The reason we choose TCNQ is that it’s a quinone related to the ones we studied in our previous publication on transfer […]

New student – Elżbieta Jarosińska

From the beginning of September we have a new PhD student in the group. Elżbieta Jarosińska just started working in Emilia’s LIDER project. Elżbieta graduated from the Faculty of Chemistry at Warsaw University of Technology. Her master’s thesis was about development of a potentiometric biosensor for the analysis of arginase […]
