Duke University Engineers Fabricating Polymer 'Nanobrushes'
Engineers from Duke University have described progress building so-called "smart nanostructures," including billionths-of-a-meter-scale "nanobrushes" that can selectively and reversibly sprout from surfaces in response to changes in temperature or solvent chemistry. In talks delivered during the March 28-April 1 at the American Chemical Society annual meeting in Anaheim, researchers from Duke's Pratt School of Engineering also told how they are using an atomic force microscope to create reprogrammable "nanopatterns" of large biologically-based molecules that could potentially serve to analyze the protein contents of individual cells, among other uses.
