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 […]

X-mas for all electronic tongue lovers came early this year!

A new book on this topic “Electronic Tongues Fundamentals and recent advances” edited by Flavio M Shimizu, Maria L Braunger and Antonio Riul Jr was just published by IOP Science. Karthika, Ela, Wojtek, Marcin and Emilia prepared chapter 3, which for the first time compares matrices ion-selective electrodes, ion-selective field […]

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 […]

Three-phase electrochemistry of a highly lipophilic neutral Ru-complex having tridentate bis(benzimidazolate)pyridine ligands

After a long haul, our paper describing three-phase experiments with a new hydrophobic Ru-complex redox-probe was finally published in Electrochimica Acta. This work is a collaboration between our group and Prof. Masa-Aki Haga’s at Chuo University in Tokyo. About two years ago Haga visited our institute and gave a talk, […]

Paper‐based electrochemical sensors and how to make them (work)

We just published a review-article in ChemElectroChem on paper-based electrochemical devices. Instead of a classic review of the published literature (of which there are plenty for paper-based devices) we opted to write a more practical guide for what to consider when making your first forays into the jungle of paper-based […]

Electrochemical reduction of 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane at the n-octyl pyrrolidone/water/electrode three-phase junction

Continuing our investigations of the behaviour of various redox probes at three-phase electrodes we have just published a paper looking at TCNQ (7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane) in a standard droplet-based setup. The reason we choose TCNQ is that it’s a quinone related to the ones we studied in our previous publication on transfer […]
