Molecularly imprinted polymer labeled with quantum dots for detection of nitroaromatic explosives
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
A sensing device for explosive compounds is a fundamental step towards the capability to detect the presence of landmines, improvised explosive devices (IEDs), and other unexploded ordinance. To detect high explosive ...
Development of a fluorescence-based protease biosensor using nanoscale platforms
([University of Missouri--Columbia], 2010)
The development of a protease biosensor utilizing nanomaterials is presented in this dissertation. Peptide substrates and nanomaterial platforms were investigated to increase the sensitivity and response time for the detection of protease analytes...
