Diamond based electrode materials
In recent years novel diamond-based electrodes have been developed, which exhibit electrochemical properties that are in many ways superior to more conventional electrode materials. Boron-doped diamond (BDD) and nanocrystalline diamond (NCD) are deposited on metal substrates using chemical vapour deposition ( CVD ) methodology, forming highly conductive films. When used as electrodes they show many attractive properties, such as a wide potential window, low background current and high resistance to fouling. It is this latter property that I wish to exploit in the electrochemical detection of metabolic products of living cells and the development of enzyme-based UME biosensors. This work is carried out in collaboration with Prof John S Foord at the University of Oxford and Dr Daren Caruana (UCL).
