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 […]
Emilia, Marta, Magda W. and Karthika went to represent our group at the annual meeting of young scientists organized by the University of Silesia in Katowice under the banner Science Beyond Disciplines. The organization committee did an amazing job! The conference cost was only 40 PLN including a very interesting workshop on the […]
In October the new Warsaw PhD School of Natural and BioMedical Sciences [Warsaw-4-PhD] will start. Our group is looking for two motivated PhD students for multidisciplinary project. One combining electrochemistry and optics, and the other combining electrochemistry and biology. More information can be found here.
We’re on a roll. Another cation transfer paper was accepted1, also in Electrochimica Acta. This is work done by Marta and our undergrad student Julia. They were investigating transfer of cations at the three-phase junction driven by reduction of the fullerene C60 and facilitated by the addition of ionophores to […]
Vishwanath’s research on cation transfer at a three-phase junction was just published1 in Electrochimica Acta. This paper looks at transfer of cations driven by a redox reaction in an organic droplet immobilised on the electrode surface. The droplet is small enough not to cover the whole electrode area, so a […]
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 […]
Congratulations to Emilia! A three-year grant for the development of a versatile platform which enables cell growth and electrochemical analysis in various point of the three dimensional culture was just accepted by the The National Centre for Research and Development (NCBR). This project envisages collaboration with the Nencki Institute of […]
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 […]
