After quite a bit of work Magdalena published her research on using the rotating droplet for detection of neurotransmitters. The key point is that by using the rotating droplet, we can perform hydrodynamic measurements in volumes of only a few tens of microliters. Combining this with an electrode modification that […]
This is the latest paper in Vishwanath’s collaboration with his former group in India. In this study, they describe a simple route for direct fabrication of nanostructured copper sulphide and hybrid copper–nickel sulphide thin film electrocatalysts by direct anodization of reactive metal electrodes in sulphide ion containing electrolytes. This method […]
In October the new Warsaw PhD School of Natural and BioMedical Sciences [Warsaw-4-PhD] will start. Our group is looking for two motivated PhD students for multidisciplinary project. One combining electrochemistry and optics, and the other combining electrochemistry and biology. More information can be found here.
We have a new PhD student in the group for the last few weeks. Karthika K V just started working in Emilia’s LIDER project. Karthika graduated with an integrated Master’s degree from the Central University of Tamil Nadu, Thiruvarur, India. Her master’s thesis was about “Intrinsically Coloured Fabrics”, which was […]
We’re on a roll. Another cation transfer paper was accepted1, also in Electrochimica Acta. This is work done by Marta and our undergrad student Julia. They were investigating transfer of cations at the three-phase junction driven by reduction of the fullerene C60 and facilitated by the addition of ionophores to […]
Vishwanath’s research on cation transfer at a three-phase junction was just published1 in Electrochimica Acta. This paper looks at transfer of cations driven by a redox reaction in an organic droplet immobilised on the electrode surface. The droplet is small enough not to cover the whole electrode area, so a […]
A new paper using bacteriophages for electrode modification was just published in Sensors and Actuators B. The work was mainly done by Katarzyna Szot-Karpińska in our neighbouring group, but Martin had a small part in the analysis of the data and in the imaging of the electrodes. Here, the bacteriophage […]
To finish off the year, Vishwanath published a paper in ChemElectroChem together with his old group in India. He prepared a copper-ion coordinated metallopolymer that he wanted to use for his ion transfer experiments here in Poland. But when it didn’t function as intended for that purpose he noticed that […]
