Electrochemical determination of neurotransmitter serotonin using boron/nitrogen co-doped diamond-graphene nanowall-structured particles

Recently another paper was published in collaboration with our UpTurn partners from Gdańsk University of Technology. Meen was investigating novel carbon materials from the Bogdanowicz group to be used for detection of serotonin. We have previously tested several different types of carbon materials for neurotransmitter detection,,, and these particles from […]

Investigation of liquids with microcavity in-line Mach-Zehnder interferometers – impact of the microcavity shape on the sensing performance

In this invited paper we studied the difference that the shape of the microcavity has in in-line Mach-Zehnder interferometers has on their sensitivity. This work is related to previous publications in collaboration between our group and Prof. Śmietana at Warsaw University of Technology., In the previous publications we used a […]

Microfluidic devices for photo-and spectroelectrochemical applications

Together with our partners in the UPTURN project we wrote a short review article about the use of combining electrochemical and optical methods in microfluidic systems. The goal of UPTURN is to create a suitable microfluidic platform for multiparametric measurements. This was a good opportunity to summarise what is available […]

Very small changes in the peptide sequence alter the redox properties of Aβ(11-16)-Cu(II) and pAβ(11-16)-Cu(II) β-amyloid complexes

Sometimes publishing doesn’t go according to plan…. Our newly published article in J. Electroanal. Chem. was supposed to have been published before the follow-up in ChemElectroChem. We thought it made sense to first study the shorter amyloid and then follow with a study of the longer one. Some review delays […]

The Influence of Coordination Mode on the Redox Properties of Copper Complexes with Aβ(3-16) and its Pyroglutamate Counterpart pAβ(3-16)

Over the last year, Magda has been working with bachelor student Natalia to investigate the redox behaviour of different β-amyloids. In her recently published paper she demonstrates a significant difference in the redox behaviour of copper complexes with peptides associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). AD is a neurodegenerative disorder and […]

A microfluidic system for analysis of electrochemical processing using a highly sensitive optical fiber microcavity

After months of work on the article, Martin and Andrzej finally got their second paper about electrochemical and optical studies using an optical fiber accepted. The article “A microfluidic system for analysis of electrochemical processing using a highly sensitive optical fiber microcavity” will be published in the journal “Optics and […]

Comparison of carbon nanomaterials for simultaneous detection of neurotransmitters in the presence of interfering species

After a few years of break in neurotransmitter-related research, Emilia and Wojtek published an article regarding the simultaneous detection of neurotransmitters. They collaborated with dr Artur Małolepszy from Warsaw University of Technology, who provided most of the tested nanomaterials. The vast majority of neurological issues are related to brain homeostasis […]

X-mas for all electronic tongue lovers came early this year!

A new book on this topic “Electronic Tongues Fundamentals and recent advances” edited by Flavio M Shimizu, Maria L Braunger and Antonio Riul Jr was just published by IOP Science. Karthika, Ela, Wojtek, Marcin and Emilia prepared chapter 3, which for the first time compares matrices ion-selective electrodes, ion-selective field […]
