Nanolithography: Thermochemical Nanolithography of Multifunctional Nanotemplates for Assembling Nano-Objects (Adv. Funct. Mater. 23/2009)
On page 3696, Wang et al. report on the nanoscale chemical surface patterning of different chemical species (amine, thiol, aldehyde, and biotin) in independent nanopatterns by the iterative application of thermochemical nanolithography. Due to the unique chemical stability of the patterns, the resultant substrates can be stored for weeks and subsequently be used for the selective attachment of nanometer-sized objects, such as proteins or DNA, using standard chemical protocols.
