Where technology & law meet: Open Access research on data security & its regulation ...

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs exploring both the technical aspects of computer security, but also the regulation of existing or emerging technologies. A research specialism of the Department of Computer & Information Sciences (CIS) is computer security. Researchers explore issues surrounding web intrusion detection techniques, malware characteristics, textual steganography and trusted systems. Digital forensics and cyber crime are also a focus.

Meanwhile, the School of Law and its Centre for Internet Law & Policy undertake studies on Internet governance. An important component of this work is consideration of privacy and data protection questions and the increasing focus on cybercrime and 'cyberterrorism'.

Abstract

Electrochemiluminescence (ECL) represents a sensitive and potentially selective approach to detecting biomolecules ranging from DNA to protein and antibody biomarkers. ECL production is highly dependent upon the rate of charge transfer (DCT). Non-conjugated metallopolymers that have previously been reported for ECL production suffer from a relative slow rate of charge transfer compared to metallopolymers that support a π conjugated network along the polymer backbone. Here, we report on the development of ruthenium containing conjugated metallopolymers with enhanced rates of charge transfer for use in ECL production. These metallopolymers have been developed with conjugated backbones which have previously been shown to aid in the communication between adjacent metal centres. The electrochemiluminescent, electrochemical and photophysical properties of the metallopolymers have been extensively studied and are reported herein
