Polyamic acid-graphene oxide nanocomposite for electrochemical screening of antibiotic residues in water
(University of the Western Cape, 2015)
Pollution of water sources, aquifers and wetland systems caused by industry, agriculture, and municipally treated wastewater is a worldwide problem that contributes to the scarcity of clean and potable water. Rivers, ...
Protein phosphatase biosensor for the detection of cyanotoxins associated with algal bloom
The toxicity of microcystin is associated with the inhibition of serine/threonine protein phosphatases 1 and 2A, which can lead to hepatocyte necrosis and haemorrhage. Analysis of microcystin is most commonly carried out ...
Determination of paracetamol at the electrochemically reduced graphene oxide-metal nanocomposite modified pencil graphite (ERGO-MC-PGE) electrode using adsorptive stripping differential pulse voltammetry
(University of Western Cape, 2020)
This project focuses on the development of simple, highly sensitive, accurate, and low cost electrochemical sensors based on the modification of pencil graphite electrodes by the electrochemical reduction of graphene ...
