Glucose-responsive polymer brushes for microcantilever sensing
Repository Usage Stats
Glucose responsive polymer brushes were synthesized on gold substrates and microcantilever arrays. The response properties of these brushes were evaluated by exposing them to different glucose concentrations for a range of pH values. This work demonstrates the potential for polymer brush-functionalized micromechanical cantilevers as glucose detectors. Furthermore, the work demonstrates that stimulus-responsive polymer brushes on micromechanical cantilevers have a significantly larger bending response due to glucose binding compared with self-assembled monolayers. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2010.

My research lies at the intersection of surface and colloid science, polymer materials engineering, and biointerface science, with four central areas of focus: 1. Fabrication, manipulation and characterization of stimulus-responsive biomolecular and bio-inspired polymeric nanostructures on surfaces; 2. Nanotechnology of soft-wet materials and hybrid biological/non-biological microdevices; 3. Receptor-ligand interactions relevant to the diagnostics of infectious diseases; 4. Friction
