Sensor for Detection of Formaldehyde Gas
Project ID: D2021-02 Background Formaldehyde (CH2O) is a volatile organic compound (VOC) that has been classified as one of the most toxic carcinogens by both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA). Since formaldehyde gas can damage the nervous and immune systems, the WHO has set a maximum...
Super Sensitive Sensor For The Detection Of Hydroxyl Free Radicals in Food
Project ID: D2020-04 Background: Detection of free radicals (ROS) is vital in maintaining food safety as the estimated economic damage caused by the impact on food safety is $7 billion per year in the US. The presence of ROS causes devastating effects on the food as it leads to oxidation of proteins, breakage of oligonucleotides, or irreparable altering...
Super Sensitive Sensor For The Detection Of Hydroxyl Free Radicals in PEM Fuel Cells
Project ID: D2020-04 Background: Owing to increased threat to the environment, the market for eco-friendly hydrogen fuel cell vehicle is expected to hit $42 billion by 2026. However, concerns over the degradation of the current fuel cell technology is one of the biggest shortcomings. The durability issue persists in the ion exchange membrane that...
Super Sensitive Sensor for the Detection of Hydroxyl Free Radicals
Project ID: D2020-04 Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are well known for their extreme reactivity. The impact of free radicals on medical and clinical fields is critical as hydroxyl radicals (OH) can be used as biomarkers for the detection of aging, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s diseases. Because certain types of free radicals are known...
