Current project: Detection of heavy metal ions using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS)

Funded by: Hypersoniq

Research summary:

The detection of heavy metal ions (HMI) is an essential step in water treatment. Due to their adverse effect on human health and the environment, strict regulations are set forth certain HMIs and concentrations in wastewater. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) possesses great potential in providing live and quantitative data about water composition. However, the interfacial phenomena must be well-defined in advance. To this end, systematic physiochemical analyses of the surfaces & interfaces, with a set of HMI-included aqueous solutions, are proposed.

This Ph.D. research project is focused on study of electrochemical electrode/electrolyte inteface structure.  Studying this interface structure fundamentals, elucidating frequency and voltammetric response of double layer structure ,and comprehensive knowledge of electrochemical effect of heavy metal ions can be achieved as the result of the project.

The project is supervised by Dr. Peyman Taheri (MSE) and Prof. Arjan Mol (MSE) as the promotor.
