Project

Capacitive sensors for detection of neonicotinoids in water and urine in Egypt (01W05518)

Contamination of water in Egypt with pesticides is a huge problem. A novel, fast and cheap detection method (based on capacitive sensing) will be developed to monitor neonicotinoids in water. The level of human exposure will be studied as well for the first time in Egypt through detection of neonicotinoids
and their metabolites in urine.
