Abstract

Biotin-functionalized polystyrene nanoparticles are directed by the electric field and self-assembled on the streptavidin coated microelectrode. The mean deposition percentage changes most sensitively when the level of the electrophoresis current changes. The Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) quantifies the effect of the process parameters on the assembly results. The ANOVA shows the electrophoresis current contributes most on the nanoparticle assembly by 74.42 . Based on the ANOVA and experimental results the optimum electrophoresis current and deposition time are determined to be 0.45μA and 60 s, respectively. The biotin-functionalized nanoparticles are successively deposited until the streptavidin modified electrode surface is filled. The neutravidin- functionalized nanoparticles are deposited on the biotin-functionalized nanoparticle layer in the same way. The deposition process is monitored by the fluorescent microscope. By repeating this layer-by-layer process, multilayer structure of biotin- and neutravidin-functionalized nanoparticles is able to be obtained. Biotin-functionalized polystyrene nanoparticles are directed by an electric field and self-assembled on a streptavidin coated microelectrode. An Analysis of Variance quantifies the effect of the process parameters current and deposition time on the assembly results. Furthermore, multilayer structures are formed by successively depositing biotin and neutravidin functionalized nanoparticles.
