The Electrochemistry Laboratory is active in the field of:

  • Studying and modifying surfaces at high resolutions with scanning electrochemical microscope (SECM)
  • Development of highly selective and sensitive sensors for heavy metals based on self-assembled monolayers and thin polymeric films
  • Electrochemical deposition of sol-gel film
  • Self-assembled monolayers

Research provided

The laboratory is currently conducting research in:

  • SECM application for driving chemical and electrochemical reactions locally on surfaces; interactions of metal ions and monolayers
  • Design of selective electrochemical probes for detecting very low levels of heavy metals based on structuring their solid-liquid interface via monolayers
  • Formation of controllable sol-gel films for corrosion prevention; deposition of thin films onto complex geometries; and sensor development
  • Electrochemical sensors based on self-assembled monolayers; new tools for studying their interaction with metal ions; attaching monolayers directly onto silicon wafers; and studying self-assembled monolayers on mercury
  • Development of method for visualizing latent fingerprints on cartridges; identifying mechanism of iron transfer to identify a firearm holder; developing fingerprints on wet papers
