Pencil Lead as a Material for Microfluidic 3D-Electrode Assemblies

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 […]


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 […]


Electrochemical Glucose Sensing: Is There Still Room for Improvement?

We just had a feature paper accepted in Analytical Chemistry with the title “Electrochemical Glucose Sensing: Is There Still Room for Improvement?“. In violation of Hinchliffe’s Rule we answer this question with a “yes!”. However, the point of the feature is to try to point of the areas that we […]


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 […]
