VIP: Non-Invasive Probing of Nanoparticle Electrostatics
Dr. Kristina Tschulik, Dr. Wei Cheng, Dr. Christopher Batchelor-McAuley, Stuart Murphy, Dr. Dario Omanović and Prof. Dr. Richard G. Compton
Not what you might think: A new and non-invasive technique to probe the electrostatic interaction between surface-charged nanoparticles and a charged metal/solution interface shows that electrostatic effects are insignificant in all but very dilute electrolytes.

High-impact nanoimpacts: The electrochemical determination of attomole glutathione contents within single individual liposomes at low overpotentials through mediated electron transfer is demonstrated by using copper (II) as a catalyst for the oxidation of liposomal glutathione. The novel nanoimpacts “titration” strategy allows the characterization of nanoparticles containing redox-inactive molecules at the single-nanoparticle level.

Foaming for success: Nickel-foam-supported CoWO4 nanosheet arrays can provide short ion-/electron-diffusion paths, effective penetration of the electrolyte, and abundant electroactive surface sites for faradic reactions. When investigated as binder-free electrodes for supercapacitors, the CoWO4 nanosheet arrays exhibit a specific capacitance of 974.1 F g−1 at 5 A g−1 and remarkable cycle performance.
