Mammalian cell-driven polymerisation of pyrrole (2018)
Journal Article
Sherman, H. G., Jain, A., Hicks, J., Stolnik, S., Alexander, C., & Rawson, F. J. (2018). Mammalian cell-driven polymerisation of pyrrole. ChemBioChem, doi:10.1002/cbic.201800630

A model cancer cell line was used to initiate polymerisation of pyrrole to form the conducting material polypyrrole. The polymerisation was shown to occur via cytosolic exudates rather than via membrane redox sites which normally control the oxidatio... Read More

Electrochemical communication with the inside of cells using micro-patterned vertical carbon nanofibre electrodes (2016)
Journal Article
Rawson, F. J., Cole, M., Hicks, J., Aylott, J. W., Milne, W., Collins, C., …Mendes, P. M. (in press). Electrochemical communication with the inside of cells using micro-patterned vertical carbon nanofibre electrodes. Scientific Reports, 6(37672), doi:10.1038/srep37672. ISSN 2045-2322

With the rapidly increasing demands for ultrasensitive biodetection, the design and applications of new nano-scale materials for development of sensors based on optical and electrochemical transducers have attracted substantial interest. In particula... Read More
