Interface Studies for Gold-based Electrochemical DNA Sensors
Gold based label-free electrochemical DNA sensors have been widely studied for biomarker diagnostics. The sensitivity and reproducibility of these sensors are determined by the sensing interface: t
Studies of the structure and phase transitions of nano-confined pentanedithiol and its application in directing hierarchical molecular assemblies on Au(1 1 1).
This work explores ways to direct the assembly of electrically-active molecular monolayers into specific locations as well as controlling their internal organization by forming pentanedithiol (C5DT) domains within an inert alkanethiol self-assembled monolayer (SAM) on Au and selectively binding porphyrin derivatives to the C5DT domains.
Contacting strategies for molecular electronics
In the last twenty years, new sophisticated tools to contact single molecules were developed. However, a molecular junction (MJ) constituted by two atomic contacts and bridged by a single or a few
Analysis of influenza virus receptor specificity using glycan-functionalized gold nanoparticles.
A facile colorimetric assay to determine the interaction of the viral hemagglutinin (HA) protein with host glycan receptors using glycan-functionalized gold nanoparticles (gGNPs) and reveals the detailed receptor-binding profiles of H7N9 virus and its HA and shows that they effectively bind to human-type receptors.
AFM study of charge transport mechanisms at electrical contacts in metal-molecule-metal systems
We investigated charge transport mechanisms at the interface between 1,8 octanedithiol (ODT) and gold and platinum electrodes. We used a voltage-biased, conductive-probe atomic force microscope tip
X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy for Determining Interface Dipoles of Self-Assembled Monolayers
In the current manuscript we assess to what extent X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy is a suitable tool for probing the dipoles formed at interfaces between self-assembled monolayers and metal

Conception of chemical structured surfaces for the study of the bacterial adhesion and the controlled development of bacterial biofilms
A fundamental understanding of how the direct environment, including a support surface, influences the properties of bacterial biofilms at the molecular and cellular scales is provided, based on which favourable conditions for the enhancement of probiotic biofilm growth and its mechanical stability can be chosen.
Developing a synthetic model of the Candida albicans cell wall using Self-Assembled Monolayers to host Beta-glucan as ligands
The investigator has proposed developing the synthetic model of the cell wall using Self-Assembled Monolayers and Biotin-Streptavidin chemistry to host β-glucan polysaccharides as ligands to study the interaction of β- glucan – Dectin-1 at the nanoscopic scale.


Nanotechnology is the set of technologies that enables the manipulation, study or exploitation of very small (typically less than 100 nanometres) structures and systems. To put this into perspective,

This paper presents a meta-modelling scheme that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and therefore expensive and expensive process of biomineralization that is currently used in materials science.
