A sensor platform to detect heavy metals has been developed within the COMMON SENSE project and presented during its final event, last Friday 27th January. The partners that participated in the development of this sensor platform are Dublin City University (DCU), DropSens, Continue reading Heavy metals sensor platform developed during the COMMON SENSE project
On Friday, January 27, there will be a public and free event to present the final results of the COMMON SENSE project on “Demonstration of next generation sensors for advanced real-time ocean observation“. This event will closure the COMMON SENSE project, in which the Continue reading Final COMMON SENSE meeting and public event: Next generation sensors for ocean observation.
Martí Gich is at the COMMON SENSE 36 Month meeting, which will take place in Oristano, Sardinia, on September 29-30. The COMMON SENSE project aims at developing low cost sensors that will revolutionise current marine monitoring strategies. Please enjoy this short Continue reading Martí Gich at the COMMON SENSE 36 Month meeting in Sardinia
This first test using natural Mediterranean seawater has shown that the method and electrodes worked correctly. Studies were done at the Institut de Ciències del Mar (ICM-CSIC) in the Aquaria and Experimental Chambers (ZAE) facilities. The water salinity of the Continue reading COMMON SENSE RESULTS: First test of the newly developed heavy metal sensors for Cd and Pb in natural sea water samples
The work has resulted from a collaboration between the ICMAB, the CNM and the company Dropsens. Screen-printed electrodes made of a bismuth nanoparticle porous carbon nanocomposite material applied to the detection of heavy metals (Pengfei Niu, César Fernández-Sánchez,* Martí Gich,* Carla Navarro-Hernández, Pablo Fanjul-Bolado, and Continue reading New paper accepted in Microchimica Acta
