DESCRIPTION OF THE GROUP

The research group Materials for Biosensors is interested in the production of and studies on surfaces, materials and nanostructures that are characterized by electrocatalytic properties or can be used as matrices for deposition of enzymes or other substances used in biosensors. In their studies, the group focuses on graphene oxide, nanostructures of conductive polymers, supramolecular polymeric gels and metallic nanostructures. Members of this group study the structure of enzymes immobilized on surfaces or matrices. For their research, members of this group use infrared spectroscopy, including reflection techniques, IR imaging and spectroelectrochemistry. Furthermore, they use Raman and UV/VIS spectroscopy, spectrofluorimetry and many electrochemical methods.The group is collaborating with many other research groups from the University of Warsaw and from the Polish Academy of Sciences.
