Title: Minnesota: A Great Place to Work on Electrochemical Ion Sensors, Professor Philppe Buhlmann, Department of Chemistry, University of Minnesota Twin Cities
Abstract: Selective electrodes for the detection of ions in liquids such as human body fluids or environmental waters are highly sensitive and selective analytical tools that offer a variety of advantages, such as simplicity of measurement, high analysis throughput, rapid detection, continuous on-line monitoring, and low cost of analysis. While such sensors are used in clinical laboratories for billions of measurements every year, applications in continuous health monitoring, the food industry, and environmental sciences still pose interesting challenges, in particular in view of biofouling and long term sensor stabilities. The Buhlmann group has contributed to the development of such sensors with new design principles and quantitative theory as well as the introduction of new materials to meet the needs of real life applications. Minnesota is a great place to work in this field, not only because of the numerous academic opportunities for collaboration with researchers in the sciences, engineering, and health sciences but also the many industry partners who are interested to team up with academia to transfer technology into new products that benefit society.
Cost: $10/person. Please pay on arrival. The awards winners and their spouses don't need to pay. 50 and 60 years national ACS members who are being honored in this meeting and their spouses don't need to pay.
