Molecular Electrochemistry, Bioelectrochemistry and Nanotechnology

We study modified electrodes with biomolecules for molecular recognition and electrical signal generation in biosensors (enzyme, immuno and genomic). The build up of thin layers comprised of enzymes and redox polyelectrolytes by electrostatic adsorption self-assembly of supramolecular structures leads to molecular recognition surfaces, where the bio-molecules are "wired" to the electrode.

We develop molecular transistors and nanotransistors of polyaniline modified by self-assembled recognition layers and integrated in hybrid circuits.
