The project is a collaboration with Palintest Ltd, who develop sensing technology for water quality assessment in the food industry, utilities and humanitarian applications. The focus will be on trace analysis of disinfectants and heavy metals with the aim of improving the detection limits, repeatability and other metrics of analytical performance of the sensors. The student would work with state-of-the-art electroanalytical methods, incorporating various aspects of nanotechnology, in the Chemical Nanoscience Laboratory at Newcastle University. There will be regular meetings and interaction with staff scientists at Palintest Ltd and the student would gain insight into the requirements of analytical methods in industry and modern techniques of sensor manufacture. This project would be ideal for a student with an interest in analytical chemistry and its application to current issues of environmental importance.
