Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We present simultaneous electrochemical and waveguide surface plasmon resonance measurements demonstrating the electrochemically controlled desorption of a thiol monolayer from a gold electrode. Self-assembled thiol layers are used in biosensors to enable the attachment of lipids to the sensor. This work demonstrates the potential for development of the device for biological sensing applications. Simultaneous SPR electrochemical measurements are made during the thiol desorption and these results are discussed and compared to the results of a numerical simulation.
