Interfaces are a most important environment in natural and synthetic chemistries for a wide variety of processes, such as catalysis, recognition, separation, and so on. Naturally occurring systems have evolved to one handedness and the study of interfaces where biomolecules are located is a potentially revealing pursuit with regard to understanding the(More)
A supramolecular strategy is used for oriented positioning of proteins on surfaces. A viologen-based guest molecule is attached to the surface, while a naphthol guest moiety is chemoselectively ligated to a yellow fluorescent protein. Cucurbit[8]uril (CB[8]) is used to link the proteins onto surfaces through specific charge-transfer interactions between(More)
A supramolecular assembly scheme is developed to enable the facile in-situ immobilization of enzymes in a microfluidic channel system. A combination of orthogonal supramolecular interactions of host (β-cyclodextrin)-guest (adamantane) and biotin-Streptavidin (SAv) interactions are employed to generate reusable homogeneous enzyme layers in microchannels. The(More)
Single-pass electrostatic force microscopy is postulated as one of the most advanced techniques in terms of spatial resolution and fastness in data acquisition for the study of electrostatic phenomena at the nanoscale. However, crosstalk anomalies, in which mechanical interactions combine with tip-sample electrostatic forces, are still a major issue to(More)
Mono- and dilithium salts of [3,3'-Co(1,2-C(2)B(9)H(11))(2)](-), (1(-)), react with different chlorosilanes (Me(2)SiHCl, Me(2)SiCl(2), Me(3)SiCl and MeSiHCl(2)) with an accurate control of the temperature to give a set of novel C(c)-mono- (C(c) = C(cluster)) and C(c)-disubstituted cobaltabis(dicarbollide) derivatives with silyl functions:(More)
As-produced single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) tend to aggregate in bundles due to π-π interactions. Several approaches are nowadays available to debundle, at least partially, the nanotubes through surface modification by both covalent and noncovalent approaches. Herein, we explore different strategies to afford an efficient covalent functionalization(More)
Monolayer doping (MLD) presents an alternative method to achieve silicon doping without causing crystal damage, and it has the capability of ultrashallow doping and the doping of nonplanar surfaces. MLD utilizes dopant-containing alkene molecules that form a monolayer on the silicon surface using the well-established hydrosilylation process. Here, we(More)
A series of chiral synthetic compounds is reported that shows intricate but specific hierarchical assembly because of varying positions of coordination and hydrogen bonds. The evolution of the aggregates (followed by absorption spectroscopy and temperature-dependent circular dichroism studies in solution) reveal the influence of the proportion of(More)
