Microcontact chemistry has been applied to patterned glass and silicon substrates by successive reaction of unprotected and monoprotected heterobifunctional linkers with alkene-terminated self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) to produce bi-, tri-, and tetrafunctional surfaces. Photochemical microcontact printing of an azide thiol linker followed by(More)
This article describes the microstructured immobilization of functional thiols on alkene- and alkyne-terminated self-assembled monolayers on silicon oxide substrates by photochemical microcontact printing. A photochemical thiol-ene or thiol-yne “click” reaction was locally induced in the area of contact between stamp and substrate by irradiation with UV(More)
Patchy surfaces: An azide-terminated self-assembled monolayer was patterned with the peptide sequence (EIAALEK)(3) by using microcontact printing. This sequence forms stable coiled-coil heterodimers with the complementary peptide (KIAALKE)(3). By introducing this peptide to the surface of phospholipid liposomes and cyclodextrin vesicles, liposomes and(More)
Anisotropic particles have properties that are completely different from isotropic particles. [ 1 ] With some creativity in the control of the shape [ 2 ] and [ 3 ] /or [ 4 ] chemical composition, an almost infi nite collection of anisotropic, “patchy” particles of various sizes can be imagined. [ 5 ] One interesting class of patchy particles are Janus(More)
The combination of topographic and chemical orthogonality on polymer particles by site selective immobilization of functional thiols via thiol-ene chemistry provides a trifunctional particle surface with azide and acid functionalities on opposing poles and alkenes in the equatorial area. These Janus beads are accessible for site selective orthogonal(More)
Bioorthogonal ligation methods are the focus of current research due to their versatile applications in biotechnology and materials science for post-functionalization and immobilization of biomolecules. Recently, inverse electron demand Diels-Alder (iEDDA) reactions employing 1,2,4,5-tetrazines as electron deficient dienes emerged as powerful tools in this(More)
