  1. 1. Direct electron transfer based biofuel cells : operating in vitro and in vivo

    Author : Magnus Falk; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : biofuel cell; direct electron transfer; enzymes; gold nanoparticles; implantable biomedical devices;

    Abstract : I vår moderna värd är vi väldigt beroende av elektrisk energi som vi använder för det mesta i får vardag: för att lysa upp våra hus, generera värme, driva våra datorer och mobiltelefoner och mycket mer. Produktion av elektrisk energi har dock ofta en negativ på-verkan på vår miljö. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tuning of Energy and Electron Transfer Rates in Donor-Bridge-Acceptor Systems

    Author : Karin Pettersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; electron transfer; electronic coupling; paramagnetic species; superexchange; Donor-bridge-acceptor system; spectroscopy.; porphyrin; sequential electron transfer; Förster energy transfer; energy transfer;

    Abstract : The intramolecular processes of Donor-Bridge-Acceptor (D-B-A) systems have been investigated by spectroscopic methods. The systems consist of porphyrin donors and acceptors linked by oligo-p-phenyleneethynylene bridges. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Fate of Electronically Excited States : Ultrafast Electron and Energy Transfer in Solvated Donor-Acceptor Systems

    Author : Staffan Wallin; Leif Hammarström; Jan Davidsson; Eric Vauthey; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; Electron transfer; Energy transfer; Anisotropy; Porphyrin; Ruthenium tris-bipyridine; Superexchange; Supramolecular; Donor-Acceptor; Charge transfer state; S2 state; Ultrafast; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : Processes where a molecule absorbs visible light and then disposes of the excess energy via electron/energy transfer reactions have an important role both in nature (e.g. in photosynthesis) and in many technical applications (e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Energy and Electron Transfer in Porphyrin-Based Donor--Bridge--Acceptor Systems

    Author : Kristine Kilså; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : electron transfer; electronic coupling; donor--bridge--acceptor systems; quantum mechanical calculations; enhanced intersystem crossing; ligand and solvent effects; bridge mediation; energy transfer; porphyrin;

    Abstract : The photophysical properties of supramolecular donor--bridge--acceptor systems have been investigated by spectroscopic and quantum mechanical methods. The systems consist of porphyrin donor and acceptor moieties linked by bridging chromophores of varying excitation energy, and are shown to be geometrically well-defined in terms of length and rotational conformation.

  5. 5. Heterogeneous electron transfer studies with ligninolytic redox enzymes and living bacteria. Applications in biosensors and biofuel cells

    Author : Vasile Coman; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cellobiose dehydrogenase; direct electron transfer; mediated electron transfer; self-assembled monolayer; flow injection analysis; amperometric biosensor; E. coli; succinate:quinone reductase; biofuel cell; B. subtilis; whole-cell biosensor;

    Abstract : The catalytic properties and the inter-domain electron transfer of cellobiose dehydrogenase (CDH) from the ascomycete fungus Myriococcum thermophilum adsorbed on graphite and thiol (SAM) modified gold electrodes were investigated using cyclic voltammetry, flow injection amperometry and UV-Vis spectroelectrochemistry. The fabrication and characterisation of a noncompartmentalised, mediator and cofactor free glucose–oxygen biofuel cell well-operating in glucose-containing buffers and human blood serum was performed.
