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 […]
After long, hard effort we finally published* our research on pencil lead electrodes as electrode arrays in a microfluidic system. This was first intended as an easy-to-assemble system that could be used e.g. in experiments for high-school students or undergrads. However, from that initial, simple idea it turned out to […]
Corrosion is a part of electrochemistry that our group is generally not involved in, although it is a very important area of research. However, Martin again had a small part in a recently published paper*, this time about corrosion protection. Specifically the paper is examining the properties of zinc coatings […]
