Abstract:

The objectives are 1 To develop the measurement technology that will allow us to determine if the a-hemolysin channel has been successfully immobilized, 2 To develop ultrathin film channel immobilization technology, and 3 To develop methods for isolating a single nanotubule in an Au nanotubule membrane For the Electrochemistry Division the objectives are 1 To develop new classes of nanotubule membranes whose transport properties can be modulated electrochemically by applying a potential to the membrane, 2 To show that surface chemistry of these nanotubule membranes can varied by simple chemical and electrochemical derivatization schemes, 3 To study electroosmotic flow phenomena in these new membranes.
