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 […]

Project for summer school(s) and e-course on practical electroanalysis

Emilia together with Wojtek Nogala and Aleksandra Kapuścińska-Bernatek after some struggle (the grant was first rejected and later accepted after appeal) got a grant to prepare 3 editions of summer school on practical aspects of electroanalysis   During each edition 20 students from abroad and 5 students from Poland will visit our institute for a week […]

Electrochemistry in an optical fiber microcavity – optical monitoring of electrochemical processes in picoliter volumes

We just published an article combining electrochemistry and interferometry in a microcavity. This work was done in collaboration with colleagues from Warsaw University of Technology and the National Institute of Telecommunications, who are responsible for the optics part of the work. The experiment is based on a microcavity in-line Mach-Zehnder […]

The spectroelectrochemical behaviour of 1,4‐dimethoxypillar[5]arene (P5A) and its monomer in different organic solvents

Pillararenes were introduced as a novel class of macrocyclig host molecules in 2008 when 1,4-dimethoxypillar[5]arene (P5A) was synthesised. The pillararenes are similar in structure to the better known cyclodextrins or calixarenes and they can also form host-guest complexes with smallish molecules that can fit into their cavities. In a recent […]

Patterned silver island paths as high-contrast optical sensing platforms

Another paper has come out in the silver nanostructure series with our neighbours in the Surface Nanoengineering group and the Maćkowski group in Toruń. This time the focus is on silver island paths – basically SIFs deposited along lines on a substrate. The idea here, as the title indicates, is to use the contrast between fluorescence enhancement on […]

Bimetallic nanocatalysts supported on graphitic carbon nitride for sustainable energy development: the shape-structure-activity relation

We are glad to share the first paper related to one of our research projects: “Microfluidic System for Solar Energy Conversion”. In this project, we seek to answer how to use renewable energy sources in the most efficient way to carry out a more eco-friendly chemical reaction? Following the current […]
