The success of our researchers - a recent publication in the journal: Applied Catalysis B: Environmental
We congratulate our colleagues, Dr. Filip Vlahović and Dr. Biljana Dojčinović, as well as their co-authors on the paper: "Design of an ethidium bromide control circuit supported by deep theoretical insight" (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apcatb.2023.122819), which was published in the prestigious journal Applied Catalysis B: Environmental (IF = 24.319).
In this publication, the authors focused on the synthesis and application of Eu-doped MnWO4 nanomaterial in an electrochemical advanced oxidation process (EAOP) for the removal of ethidium bromide from wastewater. In addition, the authors have developed an efficient analytical tool to monitor this process. The results are enriched with theoretical insights based on Density Functional Theory (DFT). The analytical procedure developed in this work can serve as a strong foundation for developing disposable ethidium bromide sensors (together with a platform for its removal) and thus contribute to improving ecological technologies and environmental protection.
In addition to the excellent results achieved, this study's importance reflects the fact that the work was carried out entirely at the University of Belgrade - by combining the multidisciplinary knowledge of colleagues from three different institutions.
We congratulate our colleagues on this outstanding scientific achievement and wish them much success in further research!
