Nanobiointerfaces were prepared based on an electrically conductive polyethylenedioxythiophene (PEDOT). Thin (<100 nm), ultrasmooth (roughness ( R(rms)) < 5 nm), and functionalized PEDOT films have been successfully electropolymerized using aqueous microemulsion. The microemulsion polymerization is found to be catalyzed in the presence of a low(More)
A redox active and electrochemiluminescent (ECL) threading bis-intercalator, consisting of two N,N'-bis(3-propyl-imidazole)-1,4,5,8-naphthalene diimides (PIND) linked by a Ru(dmbpy)2(2+) (dmbpy = 4,4'-dimethyl-2,2'-bipyridine) complex (PIND-Ru-PIND), was synthesized for the first time. Its optical, electrochemical, and ECL properties were studied. UV-vis(More)
An electrochemical biosensor for the detection of DNA based a peptide nucleic acid (PNA) capture probe (CP) modified indium tin oxide electrode (ITO) is described in this report. After hybridization, a threading intercalator, N,N'-bis[(3-propyl)-imidazole]-1,4,5,8-naphthalene diimide (PIND) imidazole complexed with Ru(bpy)(2)Cl (PIND-Ru,(More)
Herein we report the synthesis, intercalating properties, and analytical applications of an imidazole-substituted naphthalene diimide, N,N'-bis(3-propylimidazole)-1,4,5,8-naphthalene diimide (PIND), functionalized with electrocatalytic redox moieties. PIND was prepared in a single-step reaction from the corresponding dianhydride. Attachment of the redox(More)
Efficient DNA intercalators comprising naphthalene diimide grafted with ethylenedioxythiophene monomer were successfully designed, synthesized and applied to mediate/promote conducting polymer growth electrochemically on biosensor electrodes for direct and amplified DNA detection.
A simple and ultrasensitive procedure for non-labeling detection of nucleic acids is described in this study. It is based on the photoelectrochemical detection of target nucleic acids by forming a nucleic acid/photoreporter adduct layer on an ITO electrode. The target nucleic acids were hybridized with immobilized oligonucleotide capture probes on the ITO(More)
