  1. 1. At the Mountains of Modeling : Multiscale Simulations of Desalination by Capacitive Deionization

    Author : Johan Nordstrand; Joydeep Dutta; Oscar Tjernberg; Maarten Biesheuvel; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Capacitive Deionization; Desalination; Modeling; Multiscale; Simulation; Avsaltning; Kapacitiv Avjonisering; Modellering; Multiskala; Simulering; Material and Nano Physics; Material- och nanofysik; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : More than 2 billion people are living in water-scarce areas. Meanwhile, there are enormous amounts of water in the salty oceans. Capacitive deionization (CDI) rises to the challenge with electrochemical cells for desalinating the water. As the CDI field expands, modeling becomes an increasingly important part of the development landscape. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of Capacitive Biosensors for Monitoring of Bacterial Toxins and Other Biomolecules

    Author : Mahmoud Labib; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; self-assembled monolayers; competitive capacitive biosensing; cholera toxin; Capacitive biosensor; surface plasmon resonance; staphylococcal enterotoxin B; nanogold; human immunoglobulin G; glucose;

    Abstract : Sensing and quantification of biomolecules are becoming increasingly important in medical diagnostics, bioprocess technology and recently in homeland security. The majority of techniques currently employed to interrogate biomolecules require some type of radio-, enzymatic- or fluorescent-labeling. READ MORE

  3. 3. Capacitive Mixing for Extracting Concentration Gradient Energy

    Author : Zhi Zou; Longcheng Liu; Chia-Hung Hou; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; capacitive mixing; salinity gradient energy; salt difference energy; electric double layer; flow electrode CapMix; kapacitiv blandning; salthaltsgradientenergi; saltskillnadsenergi; elektriskt dubbelskikt; flödeselektrod CapMix.; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Capacitive mixing (CapMix) is a renewable method of extracting energy from the salinity gradient energy (SGE) between seawater and freshwater. The classical CapMix systems using solid electrodes generate electricity by periodically circulating seawater and freshwater into the CapMix system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biosensor-based Methods for Detection of Microcystins as Early Warning Systems

    Author : Lesedi Lebogang; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Microcystins; Drinking water; Adda-specific monoclonal antibodies; Biosensors; Capacitive; Amperometric; Flow-ELISA; Microcontact imprinting;

    Abstract : Cyanobacteria blooms are a water menace since they produce potent toxins that have been implicated in poisonings and deaths of humans and animals after consumption or contact with cyanotoxin-contaminated water. Of particular concern are cyanotoxins called microcystins, which are hepatotoxic cyclic peptides known to promote development of liver tumors in humans and animals. READ MORE

  5. 5. Capacitive Biosensor - A Tool for Ultrasensitive Analysis : Application in Clinical Analysis and Process Monitoring

    Author : Kosin Teeparuksapun; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Capacitive Biosensor; Ultrasensitive Analysis; Clinical Analysis; Bioprocess Monitoring; Human Serum Albumin; HIV-1 p24; Host Cell Proteins; Protein A; Current Pulse;

    Abstract : Increasing demands for highly sensitive, accurate, fast and portable analytical assays have led to the development of new analytical tools. The integration of highly specific biological sensing elements and appropriate transducers has enabled design of even more efficient biosensor devices for the detection of target substances. READ MORE
