About me

Dr. Kevin Honeychurch is a member of the Centre for Research in Biosciences and the Institute of Bio-sensing Technology. His main research interests have been in the design, development and application of pencil drawn and screen-printed carbon electrodes. He is presently developing methods for the fabrication of silver electrodes fabricated from compact discs for the determination of biologically and environmentally important compounds. He is also undertaking a number of studies utilising liquid chromatography with electrochemical, UV and MS detection alongside gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy (GC/MS) to elucidate the environmental degradation and behaviour of several important pollutants and nicotine in third-hand smoke. Dr. Honeychurch has published over 50 peer reviewed papers in both electroanalysis and chromatographic science. His work is regularly recorded as the most highly downloaded material for any researcher from his faculty or research centre. Dr. Honeychurch is Chartered Chemist (CChem) and an active member of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). He is currently Co-Chair of the Bristol and District section of the RSC. He is an active reviewer for world-leading international peer review journals (17), including Analytical Chemistry (impact factor 5.636) and Environmental Science and Technology (impact factor 5.228), and Biosensors and Bioelectronics (impact factor 5.602). In addition, he regularly reviews for funding agencies such as the BBSRC. He recently acted as editor for a book entitled "Nanosensors for chemical and biological applications, sensing with nanotubes, nanowires and nanoparticles" (Elsevier. ISBN 9780857096609) published in 2014. Presently he is responsible for the supervision and assessment of undergraduate and postgraduate project students undertaking their final year laboratory based research projects and lectures and leads practicals on a number of courses both at undergraduate and postgraduate level in forensic science, toxicology, analytical chemistry, environmental science, information technology and mathematics.
