Emilia’s Ph.D. thesis entitled “Analysis of Samples of Clinical and Alimentary Interest with Paperbased Devices“ was just awarded with the Springer thesis prize and will be published in their book series Springer Theses – the “best of the best”, recognizing outstanding Ph.D. research that “must represent a significant scientific advance”. Normally, editors […]
Every year our institute awards the “best paper” published during the previous year. Six papers are awarded: A winner, a runner-up, a third place and three mentions. This year the paper “Antibody modified gold nanoparticles for fast and selective, colorimetric T7 bacteriophage detection” (Bioconjugate Chem. 25, 644-648 (2014)) was one […]
Congratulations to Dawid who was awarded one of Etiuda stipends from the National Science Centre with a project with the very general title “Badanie procesu transferu jonów na granicy ciecz|ciecz w warunkach mikroprzepływowych” (“Investigation of ion transfer at the liquid|liquid interface under microfluidic conditions”). The stipend will allow Dawid to […]
Today Martin officially was given the title doktor habilitowany. His thoughts on that can be found on his private webpage, here. The summary of his habilitation, with the title “Enzymatic oxygen reduction on carbon nanotube modified electrodes” can be read here.
Another paper in the series of investigations of H2O2-generation at liquid|liquid interfaces was just accepted in Chemical Communications. In this case it’s an RTIL|water interface where oxygen is reduced by an electron donor, decamethylferrocene in the ionic liquid, with protons coming from the acidic water phase. This is work done […]
Congratulations to Dawid. The first of two papers from his visit to Frank Marken in Bath just appeared online. The paper is about electrocatalytic conversion of the model antioxidant diphenylcarbinol (DBC) by the mediator TEMPO (2,2,6,6- tetramethyl-1-piperidinyloxy). In this case the DBC is a solid crystal on the electrode surface […]
