Analyst Issue 12 now online

Fathi et al., Analyst, 2013, 138, 3380-3387

The new issue of Analyst is now available online! Here are three beautiful covers for you to enjoy.

The outside front cover features the work of Yi-Tao Long from the East China University of Science and Technology, Shanghai, and Heinz-Bernhard Kraatz from the University of Toronto Scarborough, Canada. In this study, the researchers show that modification of a nanostructured Ag surface with a porphyrin significantly enhances photocurrent compared to a monocrystalline Ag substrate.

Tailoring zinc porphyrin to the Ag nanostructure substrate: an effective approach for photoelectrochemical studies in the presence of mononucleotides

Kumar et al., Analyst, 2013, 138, 3356-3359

Our inside front cover showcases research from the University of Delhi, India. Tarkeshwar Gupta and colleagues introduce a hitch-free fluorescent probe to monitor multiple-cations via differential responses using a single sensory system and a single transducing unit (emission spectroscopy).

Finally, the inside back cover of this issue shows an image from a paper on the development of a new electrochemical immunosensor for Escherichia coli. Heyou Han and his group at the Huazhong Agricultural University, China, used a solid-state voltammetry with graphene oxide–Ag nanoparticle nanocomposites as labels, and successfully applied the biosensor for monitoring of E. coli in lake water.
