Project detail

Polypyrrole nanoparticles modified with CdTe based quantum dots for the monitoring of disease gaseous biomarkers using Love-wave transducing platforms

Duration: 01.01.2018 — 31.12.2018

On the project

The general goal of this project is to develop gravimetric gas sensing devices based on advanced gas sensitive materials consisting of conductive polymers (e.g., polypyrrole) and quantum dots (QDs, e.g., CdTe), to monitor the low concentrations of most frequently gaseous biomarkers (e.g., ethanol, acetone, and toluene) found in the specific diseases such as lung/breast cancer, diabetes, and kidney failure.
