Time: 1300h EDT
This webinar discusses the latest strategies in making customized carbon electrodes for neurotransmitter detection. Various carbon nanomaterials are reviewed, including carbon nanotube yarns and carbon nanospikes. In addition, we examine how 3D printing can be used to make small, custom geometry carbon electrodes.
Benefits of attending the webinar
- Gain knowledge of how carbon electrodes are used and customized for neurochemistry applications;
- Learn about 3D printing of carbon micro and nanoelectrodes;
- Learn about carbon nanomaterials and how surface structure influences their electrochemical behavior.
