Hierarchical 3-dimensional nickel–iron nanosheet arrays on carbon fiber paper as a novel electrode for non-enzymatic glucose sensing

A paper with Martin as one of the corresponding authors was just published in Nanoscale describing the formation of a new electrode material of nickel-iron nanosheets on a carbon paper. The material is made by hydrothermal decomposition of FeCl2 and  of Ni(NO3)2 in an autoclave vessel. Depending on the ratio of […]

Best paper from 2014

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 […]


Martin just came home after visiting the 15th ECHEMS meeting organised by Prof. Gunther Wittstock and Prof. Mehtap Özaslan from the University of Oldenburg. The conference took place in the old spa-resort Bad Zwischenahn just outside Oldenburg. The conference was very well organised and the general scientific standard of the […]

Tailored gold nanostructure arrays as catalysts for oxygen reduction in alkaline media and single molecule SERS platform

Martin had some part in a new publication in Nanoscale where electrorefining of gold from an ultramicroelectrode was used to deposit nanoparticles on an ITO electode. By changing the deposition conditions the structures could be tailored to some degree for efficient oxygen reduction or to be used a relatively well […]

Dr hab.

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.
