Abstract (englisch):
Nanoporous membranes are of increasing interest for many applications such as molecular filters, biosensors, nanofluidic logic, and energy conversion devices. To meet highest standards e.g. in molecular separation processes, membranes with pores well defined in terms of pore diameter and chemical properties are coercively required. However, the preparation of membranes with narrow pore diameter distributions is still challenging. In the work presented here, we demonstrate a novel “pore-in-pore” approach. The conical pores of a solid state membrane (SSM) template, produced by a multi-step top-down lithography procedure, are used to insert precisely formed bionanorings with exactly defined inner and outer diameters and protein surfaces. The RNA-stabilized porous 'disks' are prepared from natural building blocks of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) particles and are tailored for the intended insertion and immobilization in the solid pores, to be achieved by means of silica serving as 'bionic glue' (see 'Viropore-Membranes' project talk II, Wege et al. ). The disks consist of a defined number of TMV coat proteins (CPs), have an outer diameter ... mehr
