In addition, currently on trend are nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes (a popular choice due to the chemical stability and strength of the material), used in the...
  4. Ion Exchange Membranes for Electrodialysis

    Ion Exchange Membranes for Electrodialysis
    Ion Exchange Membranes for Electrodialysis Ion exchange membranes (IEMs) are semi-permeable membranes that are used to control the type of dissolved ions or neutral molecules transported through an object. IEMs are manufactured from diverse materials, which serve a wide range of functions across different industries. More IEM applications are being innovated with the discovery of new suitable materials, which differ...
  5. Single-Use Biosensors for the Detection of Biomarkers

    Single-Use Biosensors for the Detection of Biomarkers
    Understanding Biosensors Biosensors are devices used in identifying a selective range of analytes (specific substances that require detection). The device comprises two elements: a biological component and physicochemical detector (also known as the transducer). Each biosensor functions by converting biological responses into readable electrical signals. This process is achieved by generating signatures proportional to the concentration of the analyte. The...
  6. Magnesium Ionophores for Ion Selective Electrodes

    Magnesium Ionophores for Ion Selective Electrodes
    Magnesium Ionophores for Ion Selective Electrodes Magnesium (Mg) is a metallic element and one of the most abundant minerals found on Earth. The mineral does not exist naturally on its own, often making up a part of dolomite and magnesite deposits. Magnesium is essential in the sustenance of life and is located within the core structure of chlorophyll, the green...
  7. Carbonate Ionophores for Ion Selective Electrodes

    Carbonate Ionophores for Ion Selective Electrodes
    Carbonate Ionophores for Ion Selective Electrodes Carbonates (CO3(2−)) are a vital ingredient in organic chemistry and are some of the most widely scattered minerals found within the Earth’s crust. Carbonate salts are formed when a substance reacts with carbonic acid (H2CO3). Carbonate ionophores can be useful for measuring concentrations of such carbon species. There are diverse types of carbonates commonly...
  8. Lithium Ionophores for Ion Selective Electrodes

    Lithium Ionophores for Ion Selective Electrodes
    Ionophores are a chemical species that reversibly bind ions. Lithium ionophores are a lipophilic variant of these species, which means that they may be combined with lipids and are fat-soluble. What is Lithium? Lithium is a metallic element (Li) with 2 naturally occurring forms of isotopes, namely lithium-6 and lithium-7. Lithium has become a popular battery option due to its...
  9. Ion-Selective Electrodes (ISE): An Introduction

    Ion-Selective Electrodes (ISE): An Introduction
    Ion-Selective Electrodes (ISE): An Introduction Ion-selective electrodes have a wide variety of industrial and research uses. They offer a comprehensive method in testing the level of activity of ions contained within aqueous solutions. This is a necessary process to determine the electrical potential (conductivity) of a substance or solution, through potentiometry. What Are Ion-selective Electrodes? Ion-selective electrodes are also known...
