Gold nanotube arrays provide sensitive separation, detection systems

from the non-carbon dept.
An extensive article in Chemical and Engineering News ("From Membranes to Nanotubules", by A. Maureen Rouhi, 11 June 2001) describes work with gold template-synthesized nanotubule membranes that are enabling new approaches to separations and analytical sensing. Researchers led by Charles R. Martin, a chemistry professor at the University of Florida, are creating membranes composed of gold nanotubules, and are working to interface the nanotubule membrane architecture with biological recognition agents for applications in chemical separations and single-molecule sensing.
