    ZnO is a biocompatible material suitable for biosensors and microfluidic devices. Nanowires of ZnO tend to show hydrophobic nature which decelerates the adhesion/adsorption of biomolecules on the surface. This paper ...
  • LED-controlled tuning of ZnO nanowires’ wettability for biosensing applications. 

    Bhavsar, Kaushalkumar; Ross, Duncan; Prabhu, Radhakrishna; Pollard, Pat (Co-Action Publishing. http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/nano.v6.26711, 2015-04)

    Background: Wettability is an important property of solid materials which can be controlled by surface energy. Dynamic control over the surface wettability is of great importance for biosensing applications. Zinc oxide ...
  • Monitoring and regulating cyanobacterial metabolites (microcystins and geosmin) in aquatic systems. 

    Pestana, Carlos Joao (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2012-04)
    Cyanobacterial secondary metabolites can cause serious harm to animals and humans (cyanotoxins) and can have a major financial impact on the potable water and aquaculture industries (taste and odour compounds). ...
  • Photocatalytic degradation of eleven microcystin variants and nodularin by TiO2 coated glass microspheres. 

    Pestana, Carlos J.; Edwards, Christine; Prabhu, Radhakrishna; Robertson, Peter K. J.; Lawton, Linda A. (Elsevier http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jhazmat.2015.07.016, 2015-12-30)

    Microcystins and nodularin are toxic cyanobacterial secondary metabolites produced by cyanobacteria that pose a threat to human health in drinking water. Conventional water treatment methods often fail to remove these ...
  • Photocatalytic destruction of volatile organic compounds from the oil and gas industry. 

    Tokode, Oluwatosin (Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2014-04)
    Heterogeneous photocatalysis is an advanced oxidation technology widely applied in environmental remediation processes. It is a relatively safe and affordable technology with a low impact on the environment and has found ...
