Development of a Graphene SG-FET aptasensor able to detect attomolar concentrations of hepatitis C virus core protein

Biosensors based on graphene field-effect transistors have become a promising tool for detecting a broad range of analytes. However, they lack the stability and reproducibility required to step into biotechnological and biomedical applications. ESISNA group has used a promising physical graphene functionalization protocol which allows atomically-precise highly-controlled covalent functionalization, preserving…

The influence of reaction conditions on the growth of MOFs on surfaces

The importance of the reaction conditions has been confirmed in this study, where following an on-surface synthesis approach on the same surface and with the same precursor, two different metal-organic frameworks were obtained. The distinction comes from the different synthesis protocol of the controlled growth of both metal-organic nanostructures. Thus,…

Why individual heptagonal rings are not stable on surfaces? (Nanomaterials 2022)

Graphene nanoribbons, GNRs, – narrow stripes of graphene – are predicted to exhibit attractive electronic properties for the fabrication of nanoscale electronic devices. This 1D material shows semiconducting properties that can be tuned by modifying its length, width, or topology border; but also, with the presence of defects in form…
