Electroanalysis at the Nanoscale: Faraday Discussion 164

Monday July 1, 2013 to Wednesday July 3, 2013
Durham, United Kingdom

Event Type: Meeting

Subject(s): Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Electrochemistry, Materials Science


Event Description

The classical field of electroanalysis is emerging as a new and exciting tool in the 21st century. The characterisation, detection and theoretical behaviour of ions and electrons at the nanoscale is a growth area, of immense interest in the diverse fields of science and technology ranging from biological applications, fuel cells, surface and materials characterisation to sensing. Electrochemistry at the nanoscale is closely linked to interfacial chemistry at the solid-liquid, liquid-liquid phases, material sciences and condensed matter physics. The paradigm shift in electrochemistry started in the 1980s with development of new trends such as structured micro and nano-electrodes allowing atomic scale and dynamic investigations. Enabling in-situ techniques such as Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy combined with AFM, spectro-electrochemical methods together with advanced theoretical calculations using DFT and Monte Carlo simulations have revolutionised the field. Mention should also be made of nano-materials e.g. based on CNTs, graphene, TiO2 and other metal oxides. We look forward to welcoming you to Durham for this Faraday Discussion Aims The aim of this Faraday Discussion is to provide a forum with academic experts and end users covering the interface between academic research and application. Themes Charge transfer at the nanoscale Nanomaterial platforms Chemical detection Bioelectrolysis via nanomaterials
