Biomolecular nanowires decorated by organic electronic polymers

Abstract

We demonstrate the shaping and forming of organic electronic polymers into designer nanostructures using biomacromolecules. In order to create nanowires, nanohelixes and assemblies of these, we coordinate semiconducting or metallic polymers to biomolecular polymers in the form of DNA and misfolded proteins. Optoelectronic and electrochemical devices utilizing these shaped materials are discussed.
