Self-Assembled Monolayers, Soft Lithography and Ezyme Activity at Surfaces
- Event time: 1:00pm
- Event date: 2nd August 2004
- Speaker: Nhan Pham (Formerly School of Physics & Astronomy, University of Edinburgh)
- Location: Room 2511, James Clerk Maxwell Building (JCMB) James Clerk Maxwell Building Peter Guthrie Tait Road Edinburgh EH9 3FD GB
Self-assembly is the spontaneous organisation of molecules into stable, well-defined and highly ordered structures. Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) have therefore a wide range of applications, stretching from corrosion prevention to formation of nano-wires and bio-nano-technology. SAMs can be patterned by soft lithograpy. Finally, I will present an application of SAMs to study the enzymea ctivity at a solid surface.
This is a weekly series of informal talks given primarily by members of the soft condensed matter and statistical mechanics groups, but is also open to members of other groups and external visitors. The aim of the series is to promote discussion and learning of various topics at a level suitable to the broad background of the group. Everyone is welcome to attend..
