A thiolated co-pillararene was attached to the surface of a gold electrode and shown to give an analyte-selective voltammetric response to linear biogenic amines.
The summer is all about getting into the lab and writing up research for our academics here at Brighton. This summer has seen the publication of two new papers in inorganic chemistry. published in Chemistry Communications
, the Royal Society of Chemistry
‘s rapid communications journal. This is the sixth paper from Raghu Kothur’s PhD work, supervised by Dr Peter Cragg and Dr Bhavik Patel.
A co-pillararene sensor for linear biogenic amines, Raghuram Reddy Kothur, Bhavik Anil Patel and Peter J. Cragg, Chem. Commun., 2017, 53, 9078-9080
The hydrophobically driven inclusion complexation of the Chemical Warfare Agent (CWA) pinacolyl methylphosphonofluoridate (soman, or GD) by β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) is studied both experimentally and computationally
Also from Dr Peter Cragg is another new paper published in RSC Advances. Experimental and computational study of the inclusion complexes of β-cyclodextrin with the chemical warfare agent soman (GD) and commonly used simulants, Mark R. Sambrook, Jack C. Vincent, Jayne A. Ede, Ian A. Gass and Peter J. Cragg, RSC Adv., 2017, 7, 38069-38076
