We report an elegant and simple method to fabricate uniform silica films with controlled thickness, roughness, and hydrophilicity using nanogram quantities of silicatein, a protein involved in silica synthesis in sponges. The formation of uniform silica films was achieved by...

A simple capillary flow porometer (CFP) was assembled for through-pore structure characterization of monolithic capillary liquid chromatography columns in their original chromatographic forms. Determination of differential pressures and flow rates through dry and wet short capillary segments provided necessary information...

The temperature effects during the sol-gel process and ageing of the silica-based monolith on the structure and separation efficiency of the capillary columns (100microm i.d., 150mm) for HPLC separations were studied. The tested columns were synthesized from a mixture of...

Structure-switching, fluorescence-signaling DNA and RNA aptamers have been reported as highly versatile molecular recognition elements for biosensor development. While structure-switching DNA aptamers have been utilized for solid-phase sensing, equivalent RNA aptamers have yet to be successfully utilized in solid-phase sensors...
