The Assembly of Nano-Materials Using Bio-Scaffolding

Abstract

Bio-assembly strategies may allow formation of high-density nano-electronic architectures possessing unique electronic properties. These bio-nanomaterial hybrids should exhibit bio- compatibility and bio-viability. Therefore, contingencies of maintaining tertiary structure in the presence of nanometer-sized particles are a potential fatal flaw in bio-scaffolded assemblies. In this manuscript we investigate the assembly of bio-scaffolded nanomaterial constructs, specifically polypeptides, while probing the issue of bio-compatibility and viability by TEM imaging.
