Paper-based system for ion transfer across the liquid-liquid interface

In a paper just accepted for publication in Analytical Chemistry Marta, Emilia, and Martin, together with Damien Arrigan from Curtin University, and our former intern Alexandra Pacowska, show how ion-transfer across the liquid-liquid interface can be studied in a paper-based system. One of the problems when studying ion-transfer between an organic […]


Malononitrile derivatives as push-pull molecules: Structure – properties relationships characterization

A paper was recently published in Journal of Luminescence in which Martin is one of the co-authors. The article concerns the synthesis of a series of push-pull molecules that were characterised for their optical properties. Push-pull molecules are molecules with an electron donor end and an electron acceptor end separated […]


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 […]


Ruthenium ion containing N and S rich triazine based metallopolymer as a low overpotential acid stable electrocatalyst for hydrogen evolution

Another article by Vishwanath in his collaboration with his old Indian institute has just been published in Journal of Catalysis. In this paper they have shown a facile method for preparing thin films of Ruthenium ion containing metallopolymers chemically immobilised on the reactive electrode substrate. These electrodes exhibit a remarkable […]


SECM study of hydrogen photogeneration in a 1,2-dichloroethane | water biphasic system with decamethylruthenocene electron donor regeneration

Wojtek had another publication in the series of papers on ion-transfer for H2 and H2O2 generation at liquid|liquid interfaces. In this paper, we continue our studies on hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) at the Interface between Two Immiscible Electrolyte Solutions (ITIES). This time, we have generated hydrogen by using photoelectroactive redox […]


Generation-Collection Electrochemistry Inside a Rotating Droplet

We just had a paper published in Analytical Chemistry concerning generation-collection electrochemistry inside a rotating droplet. This is a continuation of the investigation of the rotating droplet as a small volume hydrodynamic system that was published last year in Electrochem. Commun. In this paper we generation-collection electrochemistry, meaning that we […]


Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy introduced into the International Standard Organization (ISO) regulations as an alternative method for detection and identification of pathogens in the food industry

Marta just had her first paper published. She prepared SERS-active substrates for a study using Raman spectroscopy to identify pathogens in food. Results described in the article (with a title so long that an abstract in not really needed) show that surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) combined with principal component analysis […]
