Metallo-oxide (MO)-based bioinorganic nanocomposites promise unique structures, physicochemical properties, and novel biochemical functionalities, and within the past decade, investment in research on materials such as ZnO, TiO2, SiO2, and GeO2 has significantly increased. Besides traditional approaches, the synthesis, shaping, structural patterning, and postprocessing chemical functionalization of the materials surface is inspired by strategies which mimic processes in nature. Would such materi...

While material-specific peptide binding sequences have been identified using a combination of combinatorial methods and computational modeling tools, a deep molecular level understanding of the fundamental principles through which these interactions occur and in some instances modify the morphology of inorganic materials is far from being fully realized. Understanding the thermodynamic changes that occur during peptide–inorganic interactions and correlating these to structural modifications of t...

Material binding peptides are proving to have great potential in improving material synthesis and advancing device fabrication; however, their specificity and interaction mechanisms with target surfaces remain largely elusive. This study contributes to the developing understanding of fundamental principles through which ZnO binding peptides (ZnO-BPs) interact with and modify ZnO growth/morphology. The ZnO-BPs used were the reported phage display (PD) identified sequence (G-12 (GLHVMHKVAPPR) and ...

The controlled synthesis of ZnO at the micro- and nanoscale has been the focus of significant research due to its importance in electrical and optoelectronic applications, and the potential of tuning its properties at the crystal formation stage. We present a detailed study of ZnO growth processes which supports and consolidates previous findings and gives a clearer understanding of the mechanism of ZnO formation. The influence of synthesis conditions on ZnO formation was investigated by compari...

Interactions between peptides and proteins with material surfaces are fundamental to a broad range of applications in biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Many different methods have been developed to measure a range of properties that quantify these types of interactions. In this chapter, three of these methods are presented for the determination of thermodynamic parameters that characterize peptide adsorption behavior, each of which is based on a different type of measurement. These three...

This study has contributed to the developing understanding of fundamental principles through which interactions at peptide-inorganic interfaces occur. The inorganic materials; crystalline zinc oxide (ZnO) and platinum (Pt) together with specific binding peptides identified using the phage display technique and alanine scanning for mutant sequences selected on the basis of peptide stability calculated in silico were synthesized, extensively characterized and the mechanisms of their interaction an...
