TU-Dx PhD position

doctoral school details

2D layered nanomaterials have triggered high interest in the field of bioanalytical chemistry due to several advantageous properties. In particular the photothermal conversion properties of MoS2 makes it a very promising material for laser desorption/ionization (LDI) and matrix-assisted LDI (MALDI) mass spectrometry (MS) because MoS2 sheet edges are active sites to dissociate H2 and associate H+, supporting by this the formation of protonated and deprotonated molecular ions for bioanalysis. 

The applicability of this promising material for laser-based applications is so far rather unexplored. We will evaluate 2D nanomaterial synthesized by our project partners for their potential application for bioanalysis. 

Ex vivo oxidation assays for tissues and biological fluids will be developed to study UV induced oxidations to further the development of non animal experiments. And bifunctionalized MoS2 will innovatively be combined with MS imaging for cutting-edge multimodal imaging approaches.
