Abstract [en]

Processing and patterning of electroactive materials from solvents is a hallmark of flexible organic electronics,(1) and commercial applications based on these properties are now emerging. Printing and ink-jetting are today preferred technologies for patterning, but these limit the formation of nanodevices, as they give structures way above the micrometer lateral dimension. There is therefore a great need for cheap, large area patterning of nanodevices and methods for top-down registration of these. Here we demonstrate large area patterning of connected micro/nanolines and nanotransistors from the conducting polymer PEDOT, assembled from fluids. We thereby simultaneously solve problems of large area nanopatterning, and nanoregistration.

Abstract [en]

A novel patterning method for anchoring biomolecules and noncovalent assembled conjugated polyelectrolyte (CPE)/biomolecule complexes to a chip surface is presented. The surface energy of a hydrophilic substrate is modified using an elastomeric poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) stamp, containing a relief pattern. Modification takes place on the parts where the PDMS stamp is in conformal contact with the substrate and leaves low molecular weight PDMS residues on the surface resulting in a hydrophobic modification, and then biomolecules and CPE/biomolecule complexes are then adsorbed in a specific pattern. The method constitutes a discrimination system for different conformations in biomolecules using CPEs as reporters and the PDMS modified substrates as the discriminator. Detection of different conformations in two biomacromolecules, a synthetic peptide (JR2E) and a protein (calmodulin), reported by the CPE and resolved by fluorescence was demonstrated. Also, excellent enzyme activity in patterned CPE/horseradish peroxidase (HRP) enzyme was shown, demonstrating that this method can be used to pattern biomolecules with their activity retained. The method presented could be useful in various biochip applications, such as analyzing proteins and peptides in large-scale production, in making metabolic chips, and for making multi-microarrays.

Abstract [en]

A water-soluble polythiophene, POWT, with zwitterionic peptide like side chains possess good characteristics for biosensor applications. The zwitterionic side chains of the polymer can couple to biomolecules via electrostatic and hydrogen bonding. This creates possibilities to imprint biomolecules to spin-coated polymer films with maintained functionality, and use the resulting matrix as a biosensor. Polymer-biomolecular interaction studies done with surface plasmon resonance (SPR) reveal a well performing sensor matrix with high affinity for DNA hybridizations as well as for protein detection. The responses are distinct and very specific. A directional dependence of antibodies binding to POWT layer has also been observed. The polymer films have also been characterized by optical methods. Emission and absorption measurements in different buffer systems confirm that the polymer matrix can undergo structural and conformational changes on surfaces. The dielectric function in the interval 300–800 nm of POWT is reported, based on variable angle spectroscopic ellipsometry. This modeling reveals that a considerable amount of water is included in the material. The polymer layer possesses the characteristics needed for biochip applications and micro array techniques.

Abstract [en]

The water-soluble zwitterionic polythiophene, poly(3-((S)-5-amino-5- carboxyl-3-oxapentyl)-2,5-thiophene) hydrochloride (POWT), is a conjugated polyelectrolyte (CPE) with properties well suited for biochip applications. CPEs readily form hydrogels when exposed to water-based buffer solutions or biomolecule solutions. In this work, we used in situ quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D) monitoring to collect information on the interaction between POWT films exposed to buffers with different pH and POWT/DNA chains. Our data show that POWT swells significantly when exposed to low-pH buffers, such as pH 4 acetate, this is seen as an increase in thickness and decrease in viscosity obtained via a Voight-based modeling of combined f and D QCM-D measurements. The magnitude of thickness and viscosity change upon changing from a pH 10 carbonate buffer to pH 4 acetate is 100% increase in thickness and 50% decrease in viscosity. The response of the hydrogel under pH change is well correlated with fluorescence data from POWT films on glass. The state of the hydrogel is important during interaction with biomolecules; illustrated by the observation that a swollen CPE hydrogel adsorbs a higher amount of DNA than a compacted one. In agreement with previous results, the QCM-D data confirmed that the POWT/DNA hydrogel sense complementary DNA specifically and with negligible binding of noncomplementary DNA. These results are important for efficient constructions of biochips in water environments using this class of materials.

Abstract [en]

This thesis describes the use of conjugated polyelectrolytes (CPEs) in biosensor devices. The method is based on non-covalent assembly of the biomolecule of interest and the CPE functioning as the reporter, in one case as a transducer, of biomolecular events. Devices of these assemblies on solid supports that can operate in liquid solutions have been the focus. Polythiophenes, both semiconducting and conducting, is the class of materials that has been used in this work. The semiconducting polythiophenes have ionic side chains which makes them water soluble. This ionic side chain is capable of both forming electrostatic and hydrogen bonds, and when paired with the hydrophobic backbone of the polymer a great number of interactions with biomolecules are possible. The highly conducting polythiophene derivative PEDOT -PSS, (PEDOT) doped with ionic and water soluble PSS polyelectrolyte, was used as the conducting material in 3D-electrode. Both the semiconducting and conducting polymers described above forms hydrogels on solid supports if crosslinked with the appropriate ion, biomolecule or polymer. Evaluation of the CPEs, both with and without biomolecules, was performed in liquid, solid and hydrogel state using a number of techniques. This was done to understand how the CPEs behave when exposed to different buffer systems and various biomolecules.

Hydrogels of conjugated polyelectrolytes combined with biomolecules are attractive as biosensors. The advantage with the hydrogel format is the high water content, the porous structure and the large capacity of binding molecules. High water content is important to preserve the biomolecules by providing the correct buffered environment. In this thesis we demonstrated a hydrogel of the highly conducting PEDOT -PSS polymer that was crosslinked on a solid support together with horseradish peroxidase (HRP) enzyme, forming an enzyme-enhanced electrode. Further studies of hydrogels were done using in situ quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D). POWT is a CPE withproperties well suited for biochip applications and readily forms hydrogels when exposed to water-based buffer solutions or biomolecule solutions. Detection ofcomplementary DNA and rejection of non-complementary DNA in a POWT hydrogel was demonstrated. The interaction between POWT and DNAoligonucleotides was also evaluated using fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) in solution. Labeled DNA oligonucleotides with energy accepting or donating fluorophores allowed us to determine distance and binding stoichiometry in the non-covalent POWT-DNA complex.

Patterning and anchoring of biomolecules and non-covalent assembled CPE-biomolecule complexes to a chip surface was studied; in the adsorbed state these complexes are hydrogels. Our novel method is based on the modification of the surface energy of a hydrophilic substrate surface using hydrophobic poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) elastomer stamp containing a relief pattern. Different conformations in biomolecules could be detected using fluorescence microscopy, where the CPEs acts as reporters and the PDMS modified substrates as discriminator. Also, excellent enzyme activity in patterned CPE/Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) enzyme was shown.

Distances between the individual molecules in solid state devices of conjugated polymers can be small. In luminescence devices, such as light emitting diodes or fluorescence biosensors, there is a chance of interaction between conjugated molecules especially if more than one type of molecule is present. Quenching of the light and fluorescence energy transfer can occur and a simple approach to study this was developed.

Abstract [en]

The interactions between a zwitterionic polythiophene derivative, POWT, and DNA oligonucleotides in solution have been studied by FRET (fluorescence resonance energy transfer). When POWT and ssDNA are bound alone in a complex, the distance between them is at its smallest. The distance increases when adding complementary DNA, but POWT is still mainly bound to the first DNA strand. We find that two POWT chains bind to one DNA strand, and the two POWT chains seem held together in pairs, unable to separate, as they can only bind to and quench half their own amount of labeled DNA. This POWT−POWT complex appears to dissociate at lower concentrations. ssDNA attached to POWT in a complex can also be substituted by other ssDNA in solution; this occurs to 50% when the free DNA is present in 10-fold concentration compared to the ssDNA bound to POWT. Titration studies at different concentrations show positive cooperativity in the binding of POWT and ssDNA into a complex. The hybridization of complementary DNA to the same complex involves no cooperativity. These observations indicate interesting possibilities for the use of POWT as a DNA sensor.

Abstract [en]

The capability of the computer screen photo-assisted technique (CSPT)for the spectral fingerprinting of a photoactive polythiophene derivative (POWT) used as pH reporter is demonstrated. POWT is part of a family of industrial scalable materials, well established for organic electronics and biomedical applications, which is used here to demonstrate the capability of CSPT for tracing key spectral features. The ability of CSPTfor substance classification, corroborated by principal component analysis (PCA), successfully compares to standard spectroscopy, especially considering the involved equipments: CSPT is only a computer set and a web camera.

Abstract [en]

Here we present a simple approach to study the interaction of singlet excitons with polarons in conjugated polymers in organic electronic devices. Interlayer quenching constants KIL of 1.5 M−1 between a fluorescent molecule and a doped polymer in a layered sample demonstrates the importance of understanding the quenching of excited states in polymeric devices. A combination of Förster resonance energy transfer and quenching of photoluminescence between a fluorescent molecule and a conjugated polymer in its semiconducting and metallic states were studied. The polymer is a chiral 3-substituted polythiophene (POWT) and the fluorescent molecule is fluorescein bound to dextran (D-FITC). Bilayer samples with fluorescein on top of the POWT were fabricated and studied with absorption spectroscopy, fluorescence microscopy, and electrochemical doping methods. When POWT is electrochemically dedoped it is possible to enhance the photoluminescence in the polymer layer by excitation transfer from the fluorescein layer. Our results demonstrate that PL from the polythiophene disappears rapidly as soon as the layer is doped. As the doping of polymer layer increases the fluorescence from the fluorescein on top of the polymer decreases, due to excitation quenching. Models for excitation transfer and excitation quenching in POWT/FITC bilayer devices have been developed. This model predicts a linear relationship between the PL from the two molecules, in agreement with our experimental findings. These results are relevant for the development of electroluminescent devices or solar cells based on conjugated polymers.
