Self-cleaning sensors see the light

Written by Simon Neil for Chemistry World

Graphical AbstractScientists in Italy have engineered a cheap and simple electrochemical sensor that cleans itself when exposed to ultraviolet light. Their system offers a route towards self-cleaning electrodes with myriad environmental and biomedical sensing applications – from detecting pollutants in water to monitoring medications in blood.

Open any book on chemical or biological sensors and you’ll find a lot of content on electrochemical devices. This prevalence is testament to the importance and advantages of electrode-based sensing; and electrodes containing nanomaterials are becoming increasingly popular, owing to their high surface-to-volume ratio, which can improve their sensitivity and lower costs.

Infrared offers odds on skin cancer spreading

Written by Jennifer Newton for Chemistry World

Scientists in Belgium have shown that infrared spectrometry can help predict how likely it is that a melanoma tumour, the deadliest and most common form of skin cancer, has spread to other organs.

Tumour spread, or metastasis, is the main threat to survival in melanoma patients. However, no biomarkers have been identified to indicate a high risk of metastasis and visual assessment of primary tumours by a trained pathologist is unlikely to reveal if cancerous cells have escaped to other parts of the body.

Frequently Asked Questions (will be regularly updated)

Do I need to check the copyright and permissions needed for figures or any other parts of my poster which have already been published?
Yes. Copyright owners have the exclusive right to copy their work and to issue copies of their work to the public, and it is an infringement for anyone else to do so without the copyright owner’s permission. If you are reproducing material contained in a Royal Society of Chemistry publication (journal articles, book or book chapters) you may do so providing that you fully acknowledge the original Royal Society of Chemistry publication and include a link back to it. If you wish to include material that has been published by another publisher, you will need to check how the publisher/copyright owner of the third party material wishes to receive permission requests. Information on this can be found on our Permission Requests page at http://www.rsc.org/Publishing/copyright/permission-requests.asp under “Use of third party material in our publications”.

If I include unpublished work in my poster, will I still be able to publish this in a peer-reviewed journal afterwards?
Subject to the usual conditions outlined in the Licence to Publish, being a part of the Twitter conference will not prevent you using some of the information included in your poster as part of an article in a Royal Society of Chemistry journal. Please note this policy varies by publisher and if you intend to submit your research for publication elsewhere after the event, you should check the individual policy for that journal and publisher.

What size should my poster be?
You can choose any dimensions for your poster, the important thing is that the text and figures are clear for people to read and understand. Using Microsoft PowerPoint, we found a text size of between 12-16 were clear to read when saving an A4 slide as a JPEG and uploading to Twitter. Using an A0 template, the text needed to be between 50 and 60 to be legible. You can use any software you like to create your poster, as long as the image you upload is clear for others to read. We recommend testing your poster on Twitter before the conference to make sure you are happy with your image.

Seeing glucose through the skin

Written by Rebecca Brodie for Chemistry World

Graphical AbstractScientists in Germany have developed a spectroscopy method to measure diabetics’ glucose levels through their skin.

When a sample is irradiated with IR light, it produces a temperature increase and when this heat diffuses to a material in contact with the sample, a temperature gradient is created, causing a thermal lens – just like the mirage effect you see in the air on the surface of a hot road. By examining the deflection of a probe beam across this lens, you can study the thermal and optical properties of the sample.

Ultrasensitive peanut allergy test

Written by Geri Kitley for Chemistry World

Graphical Abstract

Scientists in the US have developed an ultrasensitive procedure for spotting anti-peanut antibodies in blood.

Peanut allergies are recognised as one of the most serious food allergies, sometimes being fatal, and the severity of one’s allergy can change or develop over time. Diagnosis tends to combine medical history with clinical assays but often fails to indicate how severe an allergy is.

James Rusling, from the University of Connecticut, and colleagues, hope to develop their immunoarray into a system that diagnoses the severity of a patient’s peanut allergy. Their surface plasmon resonance (SPR) array is the first of its kind to record measurements using both carbohydrate and peptide epitopes from glycoprotein Arachis hypogaes h2 (Ara-h2). Ara-h2 is the most potent allergen from the Arachis hypogaes family, the major peanut allergens for sufferers. UUUTEHRTH
