Catalytically active nanoparticles used as gate material on SiC-FET gas sensors. The goal is to improve the selsectivity and senstitivty.The sensors are sensitive towards oxidising and reducing gases (H2, NH3, C3H6).
This work investigates the selective removal of dissolved metal ions from aqueous solutions using MCM-41 adsorbents grafted with different chemical moieties. A systematic study was conducted to understand the adsorption mechanisms, in order to better [...]
The potential use of zeolite hollow microspheres in biological studies was illustrated in the study of formation of neuromuscular junction (NMJ). The hollow zeolite microspheres carry and locally deliver signalling molecules, thus mimicking the in [...]

Polyaniline is a conducting polymer with electrical properties that can change greatly upon exposure to various chemicals. Most notably, when polyaniline is exposed to strong acids and bases, the conductivity changes by greater than 8 [...]
Self-assembled Monolayers (SAM) by spontaneous adsorption of molecules on microscale substrates have attracted a huge interest due to their scientific importance and potential uses in technological applications and health care industry. Diverse selections of SAM [...]
Carbon microcoils/nanocoils (CMC) have an interesting anisotropic morphology of 3D-herical/spiral structure such as a DNA or proteins. The CMC have double-helix or single-helix structure with a coil diameter of 0.05-10 _m and a coil pitch [...]

A new method for improving the mass detection limit of nanomechanical resonators in crystalline silicon, compatible with scaling, is demonstrated. Clamped-clamped silicon beam resonators are fabricated with a non-rectangular, ‘diabolo’ cross-section starting from SOI wafers. [...]
We report here an ultra high sensitive micromachined hydrogen sulfide gas sensor with nanocrystalline thin (100nm) silver doped SnO2 film. A polymeric sol-gel process has been successfully developed in fabricating the thin SnO2 nanofilm as [...]
A sol-gel optical chemical sensor encapsulated with complexing agents for simultaneous detection of selected heavy metals such as chromium, lead, mercury, and iron in aqueous media was fabricated. The sensor was prepared by acid catalyzed [...]
