The objective of this research program was to provide the fundamental understanding required for using the principles of electroanalytical chemistry to detect target molecules at very low concentration, including single molecules, with high specificity, simplicity, and low power. Attainment of this objective required fundamental investigations of reaction kinetics, catalytic activity, nanoparticle synthesis, adsorption, and signal enhancement at surfaces. The results of this study lay the groundwork for detecting and responding to the presence of low levels of CB agents.
