  • 2012 – Professor Frank N. Crespilho edits a book about nanobioelectrochemistry:

 

Nanobioelectrochemistry covers the modern aspects of the bioelectrochemisty, nanoscience and materials science. The combination of nanostructured materials and biological molecules enable the development of biodevices capable to detecting specific substances. Furthermore, by using bioelectrochemistry approach, the interaction between bio-system and nanostructured materials can be studied at molecular level, where several mechanism of molecular behavior are elucidate from redox reactions. The combination of biological molecules and novel nanomaterials components is of great importance in the processes of developing new nanoscale devices for future biological, medical and electronic applications. This book describes some of the different electrochemical techniques that can be used to study new strategies for patterning electrode surfaces with enzymes, organelles, cells and biomimetic systems. Also, it focuses on how enzymes and microorganisms can be used as biological catalysts in fuel cells for the green power generation. By bringing together these different aspects of nanobioelectrochemistry, this book provides a valuable source of information for many students and scientists.
