Bal Ram Adhikari will present his research Nanomaterials Based Electrochemical Approaches for Biosensing and Bacterial Disinfection. 

Date: Thursday, Sept. 14 
Time: 1:30 PM
Room: ATAC 5036 

Electrochemical approaches to myriad medical and environmental challenges are highly attractive due to their strong potential for extensive and green applications. Point of care diagnostics through the electrochemical monitoring of clinically and environmentally relevant molecules are gaining attraction due to their low cost and simple fabrication procedures. Simple and robust electrochemical approaches utilizing novel nanomaterials have been developed for the sensing of biomolecules and water disinfection. Carbon based nanomaterials and nanocomposites were employed to develop sensitive electrochemical sensor/biosensors for (acetaminophen, valacyclovir, ethanol) and nanoporous TiO2/RuO2 bifunctional materials were utilized for the design of a high-performance bacterial disinfection technology. 

Committee Members: Dr. Aicheng Chen and Dr. Heidi Schraft (co-supervisors), Dr. Neelam Khaper and Dr. Antonella Badia (external). Everyone is welcome.
