Stimuli-responsive Zipper-like Nanobioreactors

Objective

The current nanobioreactor research is focussed on the fabrication of simple-to-use, inexpensive and ultra-sensitive devices which are highly selective, sensitive and stable. Thus, the fundamental goal of this research project is to design, develop and verify a novel bioreactor with self-control abilities for advanced applications (e.g. switchable bio-catalysis) utilising nanotechnology. This subject will be exploited by developing stimuli-responsive nanomaterials to construct zipper-like nanobioreactors, which could bring more attractive advantages: (i) ease of preparation; (ii) auto-switchable structure in contact with external stimuli; (iii) fast responsive/sensing time; (iv) high selectivity and sensitivity; (v) excellent storage stability; and (vi) cost-effectiveness.
