The pharmaceutical industry has great interest in organic molecular nanosized crystals because their enhanced solubility and dissolution rate can potentially enhance drug bioavailability. In this work, patterned engineered surfaces were used to crystallize glycine with a lateral dimension below 200 nm in a confined volume while controlling supersaturation.(More)
We report a strategy for realizing tunable electrical conductivity in metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) in which the nanopores are infiltrated with redox-active, conjugated guest molecules. This approach is demonstrated using thin-film devices of the MOF Cu3(BTC)2 (also known as HKUST-1; BTC, benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxylic acid) infiltrated with the molecule(More)
Photothermal induced resonance (PTIR) has recently attracted great interest for enabling chemical identification and imaging with nanoscale resolution. In this work, electron beam nanopatterned polymer samples are fabricated directly on 3D zinc selenide prisms and used to experimentally evaluate the PTIR lateral resolution, sensitivity and linearity. It is(More)

Polymer substrates have been functionalized with a MOF material (MIL-47) synthesized directly on polyacrylonitrile using in situ microwave irradiation. The growth of MIL-47 on these substrates was studied as a function of microwave irradiation time using scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and X-ray(More)
Self-assembled monolayer-protected nanoparticles are promising candidates for applications, such as sensing and drug delivery, in which the molecular ligands' interactions with the surrounding environment play a crucial role. We recently showed that, when gold nanoparticles are coated with a binary mixture of immiscible ligands, ordered ribbon-like domains(More)
