ISE annual meeting in Bologna

Almost the whole group went to the ISE annual meeting, this year organised in Bologna, Italy. Apart from lots of cool science, many new contact, meeting with old friends the week also included some sight-seeing and a good deal of lovely Italian food. The group presented five posters during the […]


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 […]


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 […]


New group member – Marta Podrażka

One of the two students recruited to our Sonata Bis project, Marta Podrażka, just started working with us. Marta finished her studies in chemistry at Warsaw university and wrote her master thesis under the supervision of Prof. Barbara Pałys. Her thesis concerned electrochemical deposition of gold nanoparticles on ITO and […]
