  1. 1. Nanotechnology Meets Biology: Peptide-based Methods for theFabrication of Functional Materials Beverly D. Briggs and Marc R. Knecht University of MiamiJ. Phys. Chem. Lett. 2012, 3, 405-418. 1
  2. 2. Motivation • Mimicking Nature’s specificity, size and shape control of nanoparticle (NP) formation can be achieved. • Through this control, nanoparticle synthesis can be engineered for specialized applications. • Traditional methods for nanoparticle fabrication include high temperatures and harsh conditions. • Biomimetic techniques offer eco- friendly methods for fabrication under ambient conditions and temperatures.

  3. 3. Cell Surface/Phage Display Biocombinatorial isolation methods are utilized to identify peptides that bind to non-natural targets. Sarikaya, et. al., Nat. Mater., 2003  These techniques allow for identification of peptides with the ability to bind materials for technological applications.Proprietary and Confidential 3American Chemical Society
  4. 4. Palladium and Platinum Both Pd and Pt have applications in catalysis, energy storage, and gas sensing. • Q7 and Pd4 – spherical NP size control, isolated with Pd specificity. • R5 – originally isolated for SiO2 from diatoms, but also acts as a template for shaped particle formation. Chiu, C.-Y., et. al., Nanoscale, 2010. Bhandari, R., et. al., ACS Catal., 2011.• BP7A – preferentially binds to {110} surface, forming multipods.• T7 and S7 – preferentially bind to {100} and {111}, respectively, controls NP shape as well.• Cha – peptide binds to {100} and forms nanocubes.

  6. 6. Metal Oxides The electronic structure of ZnO, TiO2, and BaTiO3 make them applicable for optics, photovoltaics, and catalysis. • Z1 – shown to form ZnO hexagonal plates without secondary reagents. • G-12 and GT-16 – shown to preferentially bind to the (0001) ZnO surface. Ahmad, G., et. al., J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2008.• Ti-1 and Ti-1 (RKK) – demonstrates that basic residues • BT1 and BT2 – revealed to form are important in TiO2 NP formation. tetragonal BaTiO3 crystals with• Ti (Si) – 1 – isolated to bind and ferroelectric properties. generate TiO2 and not SiO2.
