Abstract [en]

Electrospinning is a highly attractive technique to incorporate functional materials into nanofibre structures. In this process, the polymer structure is transformed from a bulk to a fibrous network by means of a high voltage applied between two-electrode systems.1 The functionality of the bulk polymers defines the functionality of the final nanofibres as well, which is a major limitation for producing ease-to-use electrospun nanofibres.2 For this reason, researchers have focused on reactive electrospinning to produce functional nanofibres with the desired properties. For this aim, an extra step, oligomerisation, is applied to elongate the polymeric chain just before the electrospinning step. In addition, it is possible to adjust the functionality of the final fibres by using an appropriate initial functional monomer.3 Herein, we focused our attention on developing reactive electrospun nanofibres for designing a versatile functional material on electrode surfaces. We have developed a reactive electrospinning process for a functional monomer, glycidyl methacrylate, to obtain epoxy-containing fibres that are ready for immobilisation of a recognition element directly on the surface. After that, Anti-albumin antibody molecules were immobilised on the surface as a recognition element. Then the electrodes were characterised by scanning electron microscopy and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The factors affecting albumin recognition were also evaluated by varying the dipping time, pH, and concentration. The results indicated that anti-albumin antibody molecules were successfully immobilised on the fibres and play an efficient recognition role for albumin detection in aqueous solutions as well as in human serum. In conclusion, the material and method developed here shows promise for the development of versatile sensor platforms, due to its excellent performance, reproducibility and low cost.
