Interfacial Contact is Required for Metal-Assisted Plasma Etching of Silicon.

Adv Mater Interfaces 2018 Dec 21;5(24):1800836. Epub 2018 Oct 21.

Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London, London SW7 2AZ, UK.

For decades, fabrication of semiconductor devices has utilized well-established etching techniques to create complex nanostructures in silicon. The most common dry process is reactive ion etching which fabricates nanostructures through the selective removal of unmasked silicon. Generalized enhancements of etching have been reported with mask-enhanced etching with Al, Cr, Cu, and Ag masks, but there is a lack of reports exploring the ability of metallic films to catalytically enhance the local etching of silicon in plasmas.

Synthesis of Carbon Nanotube Incorporated Metal Oxides for the Fabrication of Printable, Flexible Nickel-Zinc Batteries.

Adv Mater Interfaces 2018 Feb 1;5(4). Epub 2017 Dec 1.

Department of Chemistry and Environmental Science, New Jersey Institute of Technology, 161 Warren Street, Newark, NJ 07102, USA.

The development of printable composite electrodes embedded with multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) for flexible nickel-zinc batteries is presented. The cathode and the anode comprised of Ni(OH)-CNT and ZnO-CNT respectively are prepared by coprecipitation of the metal oxides on CNTs. High loading ratio of electroactive materials increases the amount of active materials in electrode, but causes a lower material utilization efficiency due to decrease in overall electrode conductivity.

Smoldering and Flame Resistant Textiles Conformal Barrier Formation.

Adv Mater Interfaces 2016 Dec 2;3(23). Epub 2016 Nov 2.

Flammability Reduction Group, Engineering Laboratory, National Institute of Standards and Technology, 100 Bureau Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20899-866, USA.

A durable and flexible silicone-based backcoating (halogen free) is applied to the backside of an otherwise smoldering-prone and flammable fabric. When exposed to fire, cyclic siloxanes (produced by thermal decomposition of the backcoating) diffuse through the fabric in the gas phase. The following oxidation of the cyclic siloxanes forms a highly conformal and thermally stable coating that fully embeds all individual fibers and shields them from heat and oxidation. Read More

Underwater Superoleophobic Surfaces Prepared from Polymer Zwitterion/Dopamine Composite Coatings.

Adv Mater Interfaces 2016 Mar 18;3(6). Epub 2016 Jan 18.

Department of Polymer Science & Engineering, Conte Center for Polymer Research, 120 Governors Drive, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA 01003, USA.

Hydration is central to mitigating surface fouling by oil and microorganisms. Immobilization of hydrophilic polymers on surfaces promotes retention of water and a reduction of direct interactions with potential foulants. While conventional surface modification techniques are surface-specific, mussel-inspired adhesives based on dopamine effectively coat many types of surfaces and thus hold potential as a universal solution to surface modification.

Surface-directed Nanoepitaxy on a Surface with an Irregular Lattice.

Adv Mater Interfaces 2016 Mar 8;3(5). Epub 2016 Jan 8.

Materials Measurement Science Division, National Institute of Standards and Technology Gaithersburg, MD 20899, USA.

Understanding and developing metrics on how nanocrystals respond to local external surface stimuli at their interfaces during growth or operation is a key step in advancing scalable and deterministic approaches for fabricating functional one- and two-dimensional (1D and 2D) nanoscale networks. Here, we present early results on a general approach for surface-directed nanocrystal epitaxy on a surface with an irregular lattice constant. We show that patches of lattice matched areas as small as 7 nm in a background of surface lattice disorder could satisfy the condition for epitaxial growth of a crawling nanocrystal over the disordered region.

Molecular Design of Antifouling Polymer Brushes Using Sequence-Specific Peptoids.

Adv Mater Interfaces 2015 Jan;2(1)

Chemistry of Life Processes Institute and Biomedical Engineering Department, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL 60208 (USA).

Material systems that can be used to flexibly and precisely define the chemical nature and molecular arrangement of a surface would be invaluable for the control of complex biointerfacial interactions. For example, progress in antifouling polymer biointerfaces that prevent non-specific protein adsorption and cell attachment, which can significantly improve the performance of an array of biomedical and industrial applications, is hampered by a lack of chemical models to identify the molecular features conferring their properties. Poly(N-substituted glycine) "peptoids" are peptidomimetic polymers that can be conveniently synthesized with specific monomer sequences and chain lengths, and are presented as a versatile platform for investigating the molecular design of antifouling polymer brushes.

Modulation of Biointeractions by Electrically Switchable Oligopeptide Surfaces: Structural Requirements and Mechanism.

Adv Mater Interfaces 2014 Apr 25;1(2):1300085. Epub 2014 Jan 25.

School of Chemical Engineering, University of Birmingham Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 2TT, UK E-mail:

Understanding the dynamic behavior of switchable surfaces is of paramount importance for the development of controllable and tailor-made surface materials. Herein, electrically switchable mixed self-assembled monolayers based on oligopeptides have been investigated in order to elucidate their conformational mechanism and structural requirements for the regulation of biomolecular interactions between proteins and ligands appended to the end of surface tethered oligopeptides. The interaction of the neutravidin protein to a surface appended biotin ligand was chosen as a model system. Read More

Microfabricated Systems and Assays for Studying the Cytoskeletal Organization, Micromechanics, and Motility Patterns of Cancerous Cells.

Adv Mater Interfaces 2014 Oct 28;1(7). Epub 2014 Aug 28.

Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Northwestern University, 2145 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL, USA; Department of Chemistry, Northwestern University, 2145 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL, USA.

Cell motions are driven by coordinated actions of the intracellular cytoskeleton - actin, microtubules (MTs) and substrate/focal adhesions (FAs). This coordination is altered in metastatic cancer cells resulting in deregulated and increased cellular motility. Microfabrication tools, including photolithography, micromolding, microcontact printing, wet stamping and microfluidic devices have emerged as a powerful set of experimental tools with which to probe and define the differences in cytoskeleton organization/dynamics and cell motility patterns in non-metastatic and metastatic cancer cells.

Achieving One-step Surface Coating of Highly Hydrophilic Poly(Carboxybetaine Methacrylate) Polymers on Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic Surfaces.

Adv Mater Interfaces 2014 Sep 27;1(6). Epub 2014 May 27.

Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Washington, Box 351750, Seattle, Washington 98195-1750, USA.

It is highly desirable to develop a universal nonfouling coating via a simple one-step dip-coating method. Developing such a universal coating method for a hydrophilic polymer onto a variety of surfaces with hydrophobic and hydrophilic properties is very challenging. This work demonstrates a versatile and simple method to attach zwitterionic poly(carboxybetaine methacrylate) (PCB), one of the most hydrophilic polymers, onto both hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces to render them nonfouling.
