Hydrogen Sulfide Detection using Nano-diamond Materials and Electrodes

Description :  

The objective of this project is the enhancement in electrochemical detection of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) using boron doped ultrananocrystalline diamond (BDUNCD) chips. This work investigates and demonstrates new H2S detection techniques well suited to disease detection and biomedical application through a Lab on a Chip (LOC) approach. At Louisiana Tech, tests will be conducted on the BDUNCD chip inside the custom electrochemical cell using a Gamry potentiostat. Electrode modification involves hybrid BDUNCD with multi-walled carbon Nanotube (MWCNT) to achieve increased H2S detection capability in field application. Work will be done in concert with input from Innolyzer Inc. to guide performance levels and design considerations for future products. A final report will be authored and presented to Innolyzer Inc.
