Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

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.
