My SelfHi everyone, My name is Shakila and I'm currently studying on the AS:MIT course here at the University of Warwick. I'm currently working on with the Warwick Electrochemistry and Interfaces group.
New Electrochemical Approaches For Analysing Calcium Carbonate Crystal Nucleation Process on SAM surfaces
In this study technique has been developed allowing in-situ optical imaging to investigate the CaCO3 crystal growth on –COOH, -OH and CH3 functionalised SAM surfaces and further analysis were carried out with applied potential. In this system crystallisation studied under microdrop evaporation in which nucleation and crystal growth investigate in both volume and reservoir restricted environment. The behaviour of sessile drop has been analysed at functionalised surfaces with applied potential. The CaCO3 crystal morphology investigates using SEM and optical microscope images. The Micro_Raman spectroscopic analysis was perform to characterise the crystal structure.
