New paper in Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics

Eli and colleagues have recently published in Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics their work on the synthesis of hyperbranched polyglycerol (HPG). This study outlines the synthetic and purification process used to obtain hyperbranched polyglycerol (HPG) within...

New paper in Analytical Chemistry

Taryn and colleagues have recently published in Analytical Chemistry their work showing internal recalibration using a thin layer of silver sputter-coated onto functionalized pSi substrates for nanostructure imaging mass spectrometry (NIMS) of fingerprints. Nanostructure...

New paper in Biosensors and Bioelectronics

Neka and colleagues have recently published in Biosensors and Bioelectronics their work on the development of a porous silicon (pSi) membrane-based electrochemical biosensor for the label-free detection of bacteriophage MS2. A proof of concept for...

New paper in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces

Roshan and colleagues have recently published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces their work demonstrating microwave-induced heating of gold nanoparticles and nanorods. An appreciably higher and concentration-dependent microwave-induced heating rate was observed with aqueous dispersions...

Review published in Biosensors and Bioelectronics

Xavier and colleagues have recently published in Biosensors and Bioelectronics their review on bioelectronic tongues and their applications in water and food analysis. Over the last years, there has been an increasing demand for...

New paper in Analyst

Taryn and colleagues have recently published in Analyst their work on direct detection of illicit drugs from biological fluids by desorption/ionization mass spectrometry with nanoporous silicon microparticles. Surface-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (SALDI-MS) is...

New paper in Nature Communications

Bahman and colleagues have recently published in Nature Communications their work on targeted delivery of chemotherapeutic drugs to cancer cells using diatom microalgae-derived nanoporous biosilica, demonstrating the versatility and capabilities of such an approach. The...
