Nanotechnology-based precision tools for the detection and treatment of cancer by Chad A Mirkin( )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses emerging nanotechnology-based tools that have the potential to dramatically impact cancer research, diagnostics, and treatment. Cancer is a complex, devastating, and debilitating disease and, although much progress has been made, novel, more effective diagnostic and treatment options are still needed, especially for advanced cancers. The ultimate goal is to detect cancer early and non-invasively and to provide efficacious and targeted precision treatments that cause fewer harmful side effects. This book explains how nanotechnology can exploit the size-, shape-, and composition-dependent properties of nanomaterials to provide novel tools for precision cancer medicine. It will be of interest to researchers and professionals working in the fields of chemistry, biology, materials science and engineering, and medicine who want to learn more about this fascinating and fast-paced area of research

MURI: Electrochemically-Controlled Orthogonal Assembly of Monolayers on a Gold Surface via DPN( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nature utilizes molecular recognition between complex macromolecules to form sophisticated meso- and macroscopic architectures with tremendous control over the placement and orientation of nanoscopic building blocks within the extended architectures. The structures of proteins, duplex DNA, and phospholipid bilayers are maintained by cumulative weak and reversible interactions (hydrogen bonding and van der Waals interactions), and pairing principles for the constituent molecules. The biosyntheses are remarkably efficient, self-correcting, and high yielding; therefore, they are excellent models for how the synthetic chemist should consider designing complex nanostructured materials. The specific objective of the proposed research was to demonstrate orthogonal assembly of charged particles by electrochemically controlling particle deposition. In addition, the use of applied potentials to selectively miniaturize microscopic features to nanoscopic dimensions was explored

Further, we have been able to manipulate the resulting structures to incorporate gold nanoparticles. We are in the process of applying these building blocks to build up a 3-D structure using DNA-recognition and DPN-based patterning
A 10,000-Pen Nanoplotter with Integrated Ink Delivery System( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes major scientific and technological accomplishments during the three years of this grant. It includes an extensive list of articles published in peer reviewed journals and participation in scientific meetings, workshops, and lectures. Finally, patent disclosures, transitions, and awards earned by the participating investigators are listed. Over the three-year project period significant progress has been made in both areas. The Liu group took the lead in developing new DPN hardware and developed many advanced tools for SPL including 1-D and 2-D passive arrays, a 1-D active probe array, polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) passive probes, a multifunctional active probe array and a microfluidic inking chip, and the development of electrostatic actuation probes. The advanced scanning probes and probe arrays that were developed under this program expanded the capabilities of scanning probe nanolithography (SPL) and have advanced SPL technology for commercial applications. Mirkin focused on the development of new DPN applications, in particular the development of protocols for the fabrication of electronically active nanostructures, for biodetection, and multiple-pen DPN, while the majority of important milestones was reached, as well as exceeded future challenges remain. Currently the main challenge in the field of Dip-Pen Nanolithography is to develop protocols for the fabrication of multi-component nanoarrays composed of different biological and chemical molecules
MURI: Surface-Templated Bio-Inspired Synthesis and Fabrication of Functional Materials( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of biosynthons and bio-inspired assembly is a new, but extremely powerful approach to the synthesis of designer materials. The development of new methods for patterning biological molecules on the nanometer to micron length scale will lead to new biomaterials that can be used for fabricating a variety of nanostructured organic and inorganic materials that are of vital importance to the Department of Defense. These include catalytic peptide tubes, host-guest materials for molecular separations, quantum dot and magnetic particle arrays, bio-nanocircuitry, photonic bandgap and 3-D power structures, and novel bio-warfare detection materials. This grant has pursued an integrated research effort that has focused on 3 thematic areas of research: (1) biocompatible nanolithography methods for patterning and templating of 2-D and 3-D nanostructured materials; (2) nucleic acid-based approaches to preparing extended functional architectures both in solution and from predesigned, nanostructured surface templates, and (3) protein-based or inspired architectures. The highlights of our accomplishments are featured in the following report
Solution-and Solid-State Photoelectrochromic Switching in Organized Assemblies( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of the project is to prepare, characterize, and study organized, densely packed, highly oriented monolayer structures of redox and photoactive adsorbate molecules (azobenzenes and ferrocenylazobenzenes) on a variety of conducting substrates. These types of molecular assemblies are relevant to the development of new forms of ultrahigh density optical data storage media, chemical sensors, optical switches, and photon counters. An understanding of the chemical and physical processes that can occur within such assemblies is critical to the development of such high performance optical materials. The specific aim of the project is to examine the role of film structure on ion transport, electron transfer, and photochemical reactions that occur in self assembled monolayer films (SAMs). Two of the primary tools used for film characterization are state of the art 'molecular resolution' atomic force microscopy and synchrotron x-ray methods (diffraction and standing wave)
Diatomaceous Fungal and Bacterial Building Blocks for Material Synthesis( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This final report provides a summary of the scientific and technological breakthroughs achieved during the 3 years of this project. It includes a list of publications, participation in scientific meetings, workshops, and lectures, and invention disclosures. The project was extremely productive as the highlights of the scientific and technological accomplishments in this report will show. The objectives of this project were: (I) To develop methods for controlling the interaction between nanoparticles and microorganism templates to allow the rational assembly of micro- and macroscopic materials with properties tailored at the nanoparticle level; (2) to align and organize nanoparticle!microorganism composite materials three-dimensionally on surfaces to allow full exploitation of their unique properties; (3) to develop novel nanoparticle structures with unusual properties that can be used in materials assembly, and (4) to characterize and evaluate the electrical transport, photovoltaic, and spectroscopic enhancement properties. During the three years of this grant significant progress was made towards all four objectives. With respect to using diatoms as templates for the development of new nanomaterials, a method was developed to generate nanostructured metallic microshells using microorganism precursors. The electronic properties of these metallic microshells were investigated, and a method developed to assemble various nanoparticles onto microorganism surfaces to exploit the properties of these nanoparticles for applications in microelectronics. It was also shown that these microshells can serve as substrates for the detection of analytes using surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)
Parallel, Ultrafast Sub-100 Nanometer Dip-Pen Nanolithography( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have developed new designs and fabrication techniques for arrayed (one dimensional and two dimensional) DPN probes in two categories, passive probes and active probes. We have successfully developed mechanical and electrical interfaces to commercial AFM machines and software. Arrayed DPN writing has been achieved. As a highlight, a set of ten different characters has been written using ten different pens in one single run. We also have significantly advanced the chemistry compatible with the DPN technique. We have demonstrated the patterning of organic molecules (e.g., self-assembled monolayers) biological molecules (protein, and DNA molecules) and inorganic materials (e.g., sol-gel, silicon, and magnetic nanoparticles). Potential applications of DPN have now been extended to the semiconductor industry (e.g., mask repair and patterning of semiconductor substrates and thin films with sub-100 nm resolution), as well as military and medical diagnostics (e.g., DNA and protein arrays). We also have developed efficient and high yield microfabrication processes for realizing 2D probe arrays with uniform and small tip radii. A method for detecting tip/substrate contact has been developed using electrical continuity. In summary, we have successfully completed proposed tasks outlined in the proposal. We plan to develop high- density 2D arrays DPN robes with efficient inking method
Bioinspired Materials for Compact Power Structures( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report accounts for the major scientific accomplishments of the above project from May 2002 to November 2004. The focus of this proposal was the development of methods and techniques for the assembly of 3-D nanoparticle lattices using a variety of nanoparticles and novel DNA-driven assembly techniques. Microorganisms and diatoms were used as templates for the hierarchical assembly of ordered 3-D nanostructures, and DNA-linked nanoparticles were shown to form organized lattices in aqueous medium. In addition applications were developed to use diatoms as bio-templates for new materials. The self-organization of gold nanoparticles modified with DNA led to the assembly of supramolecular gold nanoparticle assemblies with unique physical characteristics. These novel supramolecular gold nanoparticle structures have potential applications as novel biodetection systems displaying properties distinct from those of the single gold nanoparticles. Finally, hybrid organic-inorganic nanorods and nanowires were synthesized, and the electrical properties of these structures were studied. Newly synthesized nanowires can self-assemble into "mushroom", "sheet" and "tubular superstructures", a process that is driven by the strong interactions between the polymer domains. The diameter and length of these novel 3-D complexes are determined by individual nanowire components. In the context of an integrated microelectrode device, these nanorod structures displayed resistor- or diode-like behavior, which suggests potential applications of these devices in areas as divers as solar energy conversion
