February Section Meeting
Mount St Joseph University Theatre Lobby
Thursday, February 22, 2018
Overview: The featured speaker for the evening is Dr. William R. Heineman. Dr. Heineman is a Distinguished Research Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati. His talk will focus on "Electrochemical Sensors for Biomedical and Environmental Applications".
Abstract: Electrochemical sensors such as the pH electrode, the glucose biosensor and the Clark oxygen electrode are widely used in biomedical, industrial, and environmental areas. Although these and many other sensors are commercially available, new sensors are needed to address existing needs for detecting and monitoring chemicals and biological materials in other applications. However, developing new sensors with the selectivity required to measure a single analyte in complex, real world samples without interferences is difficult. This talk focuses on highly selective sensors that were used for three very different applications: hydrogen gas sensors for development and point-of-care patient monitoring of biodegradable metal implants used for repairing broken bones; spectroelectrochemical sensors that combine spectroscopy and electrochemistry to achieve the exceptional selectively needed to monitor critical components in stored nuclear waste; and highly selective immunosensors for rapid detection of biological agents (toxins, viruses, spores, and bacteria) in drinking and recreational water.
