Synthesis, electrodynamics and biosensor applications of novel sulphonated polyaniline nanocomposites
(University of the Western Cape, 2007)
The overall aim of this thesis was to prepare nanostructured more processable heteronuclear sulphonated polyanyline nanocomposites with electroconductive properties suitable for applications in biosensors. The sulphonated ...
Nanocomposite immunosensor for anti-transglutaminase antibody
(University of the Western Cape, 2009)
Coeliac disease (CD) is a gluten intolerance condition that results in the flattening of the villi, which line the bowel. It is the most common cause of malabsorption of food nutrients. This inability to absorb sufficient ...
Electrochemical immunosensor based on cyclodextrin supramolecular interactions for the detection of human chorionic gonadotropin
(University of the Western Cape, 2012)
Glucose oxidase (GOx) and horseradish peroxidase (HRP) are important enzymes for the development of amperometric enzyme linked immunosensors. The selectivity of each enzyme towards its analyte deepens its importance in ...
Polymeric tyrosinase nanobiosensor system for the determination of endocrine disrupting bisphenol A
(University of the Western Cape, 2011)
The main objective of this work was to develop simple and sensitive electrochemical sensors for the detection of bisphenol A. To investigate the electrochemical behavior of BPA on a bare glassy carbon electrode. To apply ...
