The Development of Electrochemical SPR Sensing Using Electropolymerized MIPs and Nanomaterials for Detecting EDCs and chemical contaminants
Co-Project Leader: Dr. Rigoberto Advincula,Departments of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, University of Houston, Houston, Texas, USA
Project Description :
This project will develop a sensor based on novel ultra-thin films of molecularly imprinted polymer -nanomaterial composite as recognition elements for a variety of CCs and EDCs. Hyphenated electrochemical-surface plasmon resonance (EC-SPR) technique will be used to provide the highest selectivity of MIP-nanomaterial composite thin films.
