Study Results from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Provide New Insights into Nanomaterials (High-Performance Multipanel Biosensors Based on a Selective Integration of Nanographite Petals)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Research findings on Nanomaterials are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting out of Lausanne, Switzerland, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "We report the first selective growth of nano-graphite petals and various carbon nanomaterials onto a multipanel electrochemical platform. Different types of nanomaterials can be obtained by fine-tuning the growth parameters of the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, "First, absolute novelty is the catalytic CVD selective growth of different carbon nanomaterials only on the working electrodes of the platform. A second novelty is the growth obtained at complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor compatible temperatures. These novel electrodes have been incorporated in sensors in which performance characteristics improve with the content of nanostructures."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Unprecedented sensing parameters with respect to both direct and enzyme-mediated electrochemical biodetection have been obtained."
