Polypeptide-guided assembly of conducting polymer nanocomposites
2010 (English)In: NANOSCALE, ISSN 2040-3364, Vol. 2, no 10, 2058-2061 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A strategy for fabrication of electroactive nanocomposites with nanoscale organization, based on self-assembly, is reported. Gold nanoparticles are assembled by a polypeptide folding-dependent bridging. The polypeptides are further utilized to recruit and associate with a water soluble conducting polymer. The polymer is homogenously incorporated into the nanocomposite, forming conducting pathways which make the composite material highly conducting.
