    CRUICKSHANK, L., OFFICER, S., POLLARD, P., PRABHU, R., STUTTER, M. and FERNANDEZ, C., 2015. Rare elements electrochemistry: the development of a novel electrochemical sensor for the rapid detection of Europium in environmental samples using gold electrode modified with 2-pyridinol-1-oxide. Analytical Sciences, 31 (7), pp. 623-627.
    This work presents for the first time the electrochemical determination of europium using cyclic voltammetry at gold electrodes modified with 2-pyridinol-1-oxide. A well-defined oxidation peak was observed in cyclic ...
  • Scale effects in testing of a monopile support structure submerged in tidal currents. 

    Okorie, Oghenevwori Patricia (Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2011-11)
    Climate change and energy security are key issues motivating the development of Tidal Current Energy (TCE) technology. Small scale model testing of TCE devices is a major challenge facing the technology due to turbulent ...
  • The use of carbon and gold electrodes in anodic stripping voltammetric heavy metal sensors. 

    Bonsen, E.; Robertson, Peter K. J.; McStay, Daniel; Pollard, Pat; Backes, M.; Shaw, J. (Taylor & Francis, 1999)
    BONSEN, E. M., ROBERTSON, P. K. J., MCSTAY, D., POLLARD, P., BACKES, M. and SHAW, J., 1999. The use of carbon and gold electrodes in anodic stripping voltammetric heavy metal sensors. In : N. M. WHITE and A. T. AUGOUSTI, eds. Sensors and their Applications X: Proceedings of the 10th Conference on Sensors and their Applications, held in Cardiff, Wales, 5-8 September 1999. New York: Taylor and Francis. Pp. 83-88.
    The use of anodic stripping voltammetry (ASV)has been proven in the past to be a precise and sensitive analytical method with an excellent limit of detection. Electrochemical sensors could help to avoid expensive and time ...
  • Waste to want: polymer nanocomposites using nanoclays extracted from oil based drilling mud waste. 

    Adegbotolu, Urenna V.; Njuguna, James; Pollard, Pat; Yates, Kyari (IOP Publishing., 2014)
    ADEGBOTOLU, U. V., NJUGUNA, J., POLLARD, P. and YATES, K., 2014. Waste to want: polymer nanocomposites using nanoclays extracted from oil based drilling mud waste. IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering, 64, pp. 012023.
    Due to the European Union (EU) waste frame work directive (WFD), legislations have been endorsed in EU member states such as UK for the Recycling of wastes with a vision to prevent and reduce landfilling of waste. Spent ...
