Nature abounds with intricate composite architectures composed of hard and soft materials synergistically intertwined to provide both useful functionality and mechanical integrity. Recent synthetic efforts to mimic such natural designs have focused on nanocomposites, prepared mainly by slow procedures like monomer or polymer infiltration of inorganic… (More)
Single-walled carbon nanotubes were functionalized with biotin using either electropolymerization or formation of pi-stacking interactions for the construction of biosensors. Thanks to the high affinity of the avidin-biotin interactions, a biotinylated glucose oxidase (B-GOX) as a biomolecule model was immobilized on the biotinylated nanotubes. The… (More)
Here for the first time, we detail self-contained (wireless and self-powered) biodevices with wireless signal transmission. Specifically, we demonstrate the operation of self-sustained carbohydrate and oxygen sensitive biodevices, consisting of a wireless electronic unit, radio transmitter and separate sensing bioelectrodes, supplied with electrical energy… (More)
Self-assembled redox protein nanowires have been exploited as efficient electron shuttles for an oxygen-tolerant hydrogenase. An intra/inter-protein electron transfer chain has been achieved between the iron-sulfur centers of rubredoxin and the FeS cluster of [NiFe] hydrogenases. [NiFe] Hydrogenases entrapped in the intricated matrix of metalloprotein… (More)
Single walled carbon nanotubes were functionalized with different functionalities by simple dip coating. This fast and reproducible procedure was realized with nanotube coated electrodes for the construction of polyvalent biosensors. Three different pyrene derivatives were attached to the nanotube sidewalls by π-stacking interactions in a one-step reaction.
Cubic Pd nanoparticles (PdNPs) were synthesized using ascorbic acid as a reducing agent and were evaluated for the catalytic oxygen reduction reaction. PdNPs were confined with multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) dispersions to form black suspensions and these inks were dropcast onto glassy carbon electrodes. Different nanoparticle sizes were synthesized… (More)
A simple method is presented to synthesize asymmetric mixed ligand iron(II) diimine complexes using bipyridinyl functionalized carbon nanotubes. The synthesis of these complexes was realized using subsequent dip coating processes. The in situ formed mixed ligand complexes were used in aqueous media to act as building blocks in biosensor devices.
Glucose oxidase (GOx) is immobilized on ZnO nanoparticle-modified electrodes. The immobilized glucose oxidase shows efficient mediated electron transfer with ZnO nanoparticles to which the ferrocenyl moiety is π-stacked into a supramolecular architecture. The constructed ZnO-Fc/CNT modified electrode exhibits high ferrocene surface coverage, preventing any… (More)
To discover marker information content and differentiation among grapevine accessions from Iran, USA and Russia, nine microsatellite markers were used. A total of 75 alleles were detected, giving a mean of 8.3 alleles per 9 loci. The total number of alleles per locus varied between 6 to 11 and the polymorphism information content ranged from 0.65 to 0.88,… (More)
