About the Speaker
Jeremy D. Glennon (PhD, 1979, University College Dublin, Ireland and PDF at the Research Institute. Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada) is Professor of Analytical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at University College Cork (UCC), Ireland. He is the author and co-author of over 200 research and conference papers, founding member of the Analytical and Biological Research Facility (ABCRF) at UCC and associate director of the SFI funded Irish Separation Science Cluster (ISSC).
New superficially porous or core shell silica particle technology for liquid chromatography is described, which allows nanoscale control over shell thickness, and high efficiency separations. The enhancement of separation selectivity for important low molecular biomarkers using embedded gold and silica nanoparticles is illustrated using capillary electrophoresis, where the sensitivity is also enhanced using amperometric detection.
