Scanning force microscopy study of the morphology of spin-cast molecular-imprinted nylon thin films.
Publication date: 2004
Journal: Surface And Interface Analysis
Abstract: The morphology of thin, selectively imprinted films of Nylon-6 was investigated by scanning force microscopy. Four amino acids were used as template molecules in the spin-cast films. Film thickness ranged from 2 mum to 500 nm, depending on the nylon and template concentration in the casting solution. The thin- film properties, including the presence of nanometer- to micrometer-sized pores, are clearly associated with the imprinting process. The larger features observed by scanning force microscopy are attributed to amino acid clustering during the casting process. Copyright (C) 2004 John Wiley Sons, Ltd
