For the surface-optoelectronic study of Saxitoxin sensing, we fabricated selfassembled calix[4]arene derivative monolayers as the recognition-functional interfaces on a gold surface. An interaction study between Saxitoxin and calix[4]arene derivative monolayers were performed using surface plasmon resonance (SPR) spectroscopy. Among three calix[4]arene(More)
9-Benzyl-3-methylene-1,5-di-p-toluenesulfonyl-1,5,9-triazacyclododecane (CADA) has been identified as a novel antiviral lead compound with significant anti-human immunodeficiency virus and anti-human herpesvirus 7 activity. Surprisingly, this compound selectively decreased the expression of the CD4 glycoprotein, the primary receptor needed for the entry of(More)
Three calix[4]arene (Cal-4) derivatives of which contain ethylester (1), carboxylic acid (2), and crownether (3) at the lower rim with a common reactive thiol at the upper rim were synthesized and constructed to self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on Au films. After spectroscopic characterization of monolayers, the interaction between Cal-4 and surface(More)
Membrane proteins possess significant hydrophobic domains and are likely to deplete their native activity immobilized on the solid surface relative to those occurring in a membrane environment. To investigate an efficient immobilization method, calix[4]crown-ether monolayer as an artificial protein linker system was constructed on the gold surface and(More)
A simple colorimetric nanoprobe based on virgin silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) was developed for the selective detection of iodide and bromide ions via aggregation and anti-aggregation mechanism. With addition of I(-) ions, virgin AgNPs, in presence of Fe(3+), showed perceptible color change from yellow to colorless along with disappearance of surface plasmon(More)
The synthesis and potentiometric evaluation of new 1,3,5-tris(thiazolylcarbethoxy)-2,4,6-trimethylbenzene (3), 1,3,5-tris(thiazolylhydroxy)-2,4,6-trimethylbenzene (4), 1,3,5-tris(thiazolylmethyl)-2,4,6-trimethylbenzene (5), and 1,3,5-tris(thiazolylphenyl)-2,4,6-trimethylbenzene (6), toward mono and divalent cations under various pH conditions are outlined.(More)
Effective investigation of biomolecular structure and function with chip-basedmodern instruments often requires reliable and steady attachment of designatedbiomolecules on substrate. Here, we investigated the formation of self-assembled monolayer(SAM) with a new calix[4]arene derivative containing bisazacrown ether at the lower rim(calix[4]bisazacrown)(More)
The multistep syntheses of several bicyclic triamines are described, all of which have an imbedded 1,5,9-triazacyclododecane ring. In 1,5,9-triazabicyclo[7.3.3]pentadecanes 12, 13, 15, and 16, two nitrogens are bridged by three carbons. The monoprotonated forms of these triamines are highly stabilized by a hydrogen-bonded network involving the bridge and(More)
Chemosensor L derived from vitamin B6 cofactor pyridoxal-5-phosphate was investigated for the selective detection of Cu(2+) and Fe(3+) in aqueous medium. Sensor L formed a 1:1 complex with Cu(2+) and displays a perceptible color change from colorless to yellow brown with the appearance of a new charge transfer band at ~450 nm. In contrast, the fluorescence(More)
