Review published in Nano Energy

Soundarrajan and colleagues have recently published in Nano Energy their work  highlighting the potential of nanostructured silicon in solar water splitting. Inspired by photosynthesis, solar water electrolysis uses sunlight to produce hydrogen, a clean,...

New paper in Biomaterials Science

Morteza and colleagues have recently published in Biomaterials Science their study on thermally hydrocarbonised porous silicon nanoparticles (THCpSiNPs) capped with polyethylenimine (PEI) fabrication, and their potential for small interfering RNA (siRNA) delivery in an in...

Review published in Nanomedicine

Morteza and colleagues have recently published in Nanomedicine their review on silicon nanostructures applied to nanomedicine. Zero-valent, or elemental, silicon nanostructures exhibit a number of properties that render them attractive for applications in nanomedicine....

New paper in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces

Soundarrajan and colleagues have recently published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces their work on the development of an effective solar-powered silicon device for hydrogen production from water splitting. There is increasing demand for nanostructuring...

Congratulations Angela and Roey

As the establishment of the Future Industries Institute (FII) continues, we are glad to announce that Dr. Angela Ivask and Dr. Roey Elnathan have been appointed as professional staff in the levels A/B/C. Please...

New paper in Biosensors and Bioelectronics

Siti and colleagues have recently published in Biosensors and Bioelectronics their work on the development of l-lactate dehydrogenase biosensor based on porous silicon resonant microcavities as fluorescence enhancers. The up-regulation of l-lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), an...

New paper in Acta Biomateriala

Soraya and colleagues have recently published in Acta Biomateriala their studies demonstrating the value of cell microarray platforms to decipher the combinatorial interactions at play in stem cell niche microenvironments. Cell microarrays are a novel...

New ARC Linkage project granted

Nico has recently been awarded a new ARC Linkage project on Lab-on-a-chip mass spectrometry tools for testing illicit drugs. Lead Chief Investigator: Professor Nicolas Voelcker Partner Organisations: Perkin Elmer Pty Ltd/E G and G...

New paper in Chemical Communications

Martin and colleagues have recently published in Chemical Communications a novel surface modification for porous silicon (pSi). Hydroxyl-terminated pSi surfaces are modified with a hydrosilane via Si–H activation using the Lewis acid catalyst tris(pentafluorophenyl) borane....

New paper in Journal of Materials Chemistry B

Roshan and colleagues have recently published in Journal of Materials Chemistry B their work employing surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerisation (ATRP) to graft thermo-responsive copolymers of oligo(ethylene glycol) methacrylates from the surface of diatom biosilica...
