N&N Group and Grup de Transductors Químics (CNM) Collaboration: new paper on heavy metals detection


Electroanalytical Assessment of Heavy Metals in Waters with Bismuth Nanoparticle-Porous Carbon Paste Electrodes

The final version of the paper in Electrochimica Acta is on-line . It will be published in the journal in May. You can download it from the link. The journal provides free access to the article for almost two months and the article can also be shared during this time.

•A bismuth carbon nanocomposite material prepared by a one-pot sol-gel process.
•Application to the fabrication of a sensor for heavy metal detection in waters.
•Cd, Pb and Ni were measured at concentration levels below the MAC-EQS set by the EU.
•Thorough assessment of the sensor performance in water samples of different origin.
