The present work reports on in situ observations of the interaction of organic dye probe molecules and dye-labeled protein with different poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) architectures (linear, dendron, and bottle brush). Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) and single molecule event analysis were used to examine the nature and extent of probe-PEG… (More)
A series of poly(p-phenylene vinylene) (PPV) copolymers functionalized with hole-transport and electrochemically active carbazole units as pendant moieties is reported. These polymers exhibit photoluminescence properties by virtue of the PPV analogous backbone. They were also designed as precursor polymer bearing the electroactive carbazole group to form… (More)
A novel chemosensitive ultrathin film with high selectivity was developed for the detection of naproxen, paracetamol, and theophylline using non-covalent electropolymerized molecular imprinted polymers (E-MIP). A series of monofunctional and bifunctional H-bonding terthiophene and carbazole monomers were compared for imprinting these drugs without the use… (More)
The Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique was used to immobilize flat graphene oxide (GO) sheets on a PET substrate to ascertain as to whether the edges of GO play an integral part in its antimicrobial mechanism. The observed antibacterial activity suggests that contact with the edges is not a fundamental part of the mechanism.
A facile approach and strategy toward binary-composition, two-dimensional (2D) patterned surfaces of conducting polymer periodic arrays, together with thiol self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) is described. The method involved a Langmuir-Blodgett (LB)-like deposition of latex microsphere particles, electropolymerization via cyclic voltammetric (CV) techniques,… (More)
A simple electrochemical fabrication of graphene nanomesh (GNM) via colloidal templating is reported for the first time. The process involves the arraying of polystyrene (PS) spheres onto a CVD-deposited graphene, electro-deposition of carbazole units, removal of the PS template and electrochemical oxidative etching. The GNM was characterized by scanning… (More)
The synthesis of homopolymer and diblock copolymers on surfaces was demonstrated using electrodeposition of a methacrylate-functionalized carbazole dendron and subsequent reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) "grafting-through" polymerization. First, the anodically electroactive carbazole dendron with methacrylate moiety (G1CzMA) was… (More)
We report on the synthesis, electropolymerization, and nanoparticle formation of a series of electroactive carbazole-terminated dendronized linear polynorbornenes prepared by living ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP). The molecular weight (MW) of the dendronized polymers was controlled by varying the feed ratio between the dendronized monomer and… (More)
We report the first synthesis of a catenated polymer via a ring-expansion strategy, which is based on a supramolecularly templated initiator. The high yielding synthesis and simple isolation method will enable the investigation and development of this unique polymer system for further applications.
We report a detailed and quantitative study on the supramolecular complexation of amine-functionalized polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimer G(4)-NH(2) with carboxylic acid terminal dendrons containing peripheral electroactive carbazole groups of different generations (G(0)COOH, G(1)COOH, and G(2)COOH). While the focus is on a detailed understanding and… (More)
