In this module students will learn about the practical applications of biosensors and how they are developed to detect specific ions. Students will learn how to modify glass surfaces with alkoxysilane reagents, measure the properties of surfaces using contact angle measurements, and modify surfaces to specifically alter regions of a self assembled monolayer. Students will then use the learned techniques to develop a sensor for the detection of specific transition metal ions in solution.
