Iran Produces World`s First Copper Sensitive Ion Sensor


Researchers in Iran have for the first time created a nano-copper ion sensor capable of detecting as low as 9-10 molar. Other sensors can detect down to 1 micromolar, however this sensor detects smaller concentrations of the copper ion.

A study published in Talanta stated that the sensor is created from gold nano-particles as well as other ionophile materials and demonstrated high sensitivity towards copper ions in various concentrations.

Mohamad Hossein Mashhadizadeh has announced that applications for such technology could be used within food, biological and medical industries.

Nice tech :)

  Concentrations are whack.  
9-10 Molar is significantly greater than 1 micromolar by a factor of 1,000,000.

Intended for readers reference-- sources fault.

The new sensor can detect concentrations of 9-10 nanomolar. Compared to previous technology this new device is 1000X more sensitive.

What exactily does this mean? What are the uses?

  i would imagine  
it coud be used for studies relating to copper poisoning.

  I think it should be 9^-10 Molar  
Correct me if I'm wrong...

I've already corrected the concentrations by its SI unit nano. Scientific notation in Molar would be 9x10^-9 or 1.0x10^-8 respectively for the 9-10 range in the article.

I'm sure this could be used for anti ship weaponry.

Yeah, that's all any one in Persia ever does: try to stealthily develop weapons that will make "the west" bow down to them.

  Good show!  
Its advances like this that reinforce my feelings that Iran is doing legit things with their nuclear research.
  by: gbestwick   09/16/2008 06:30 AM     
  they also created  
iran also created nano-crystal coated titanium (hardened titanium) too; its main application would likely be used for aircraft or spacecraft even formula 1 race cars.

  It's an outrage!  
I think all ionophiles should be tracked via a world-wide registry and anytime one relocates, there should be mandatory notices sent to all parties involved informing them of the presence of these abominations against nature!
