The nanotechnology is a new filed with wide application in all of the world. In the recent years, all of the countries focused for application of this new filed for improvement their countries. Therefore, making a high quality nanotechnology group is very important in any university. In between more application of nanotechnology branch, the electrochemical application of nanomaterials showed more attention due to high surface area and good electrical conductivity of nanomaterials. Our group would like for developing nanotechnology in electrochemical sensors for analytical applications. The analytical determination of biological, pharmaceutical, environmental and food samples are a necessary strategy for investigation of quality of them. Many analytical strategies such as HPLC, GC, spectroscopy and electro-chemical methods were suggestion for this goal. In between, electrochemical sensors showed more attention due to fast response, easy operation and low cost. Nevertheless, low oxidation/reduction signal with high over-potential are main problems for determination of electro-active compounds using electrochemical sensors. For overcoming to these problems, the modified sensors with highly conductive mediators such as nanomaterials, ionic liquids, conductive polymers were suggested. This research group focused for introduction new electrochemical modified sensors as analytical approach in determination of biological, pharmaceutical, environmental and food samples
2. Mission and vision
In this research and in our group, we focused for design and synthesis of new type of nanomaterials with wide application. The application of conductive nanomaterials for fabrication of food, drug and biological sensors are the main objective of our research group. The analysis of trace level of electroactive materials such as anticancer drugs, vitamins, food additives, environmental pollutants are the goal of our research group using nanotechnology and conductive nanomaterials. Our group work doesn’t limit their research work only for electrochemical sensors and its possible we used nanomaterials for fuel cell and other relative fields such as water treatment
