Will deliver a lecture within the course Physical Chemistry of Materials, entitled:


“Development, characterization and applicability of a home-made nanostructured gold electrode. “

Abstract: fish accumulate considerable amount of mercury and methylmercury in their tissues representing a critical source of these chemical species into diets.
This presentation is focused on the development of a simple procedure for on-site determination of mercury and methylmercury in sea-matrices. A gold nanoparticle-modified glassy carbon electrode (AuNPs-GCE) is exploited to implement a procedure that permits, simultaneously, both the digestion of the sample on-site and the quantification of both inorganic and organic mercury
