Assembling nanoparticles and biomacromolecules using electrostatic
Materials Chemistry Division, National Chemical Laboratory,

Abstract: Nanotechnology is witnessing impressive advances on
many different fronts. One of the key areas with important commercial
implications concerns the assembly of nanoparticles to form thin films
and superstructures by what is commonly known as the "bottom-up"
approach. This paper covers some of the more recent developments in
this fascinating field with particular emphasis on the work from the
author's laboratory on assembly of nanoparticles using electrostatic
interactions. The use of electrostatic interactions enables extension
of the assembly protocols to the immobilization of biomacromolecules
such as proteins/enzymes and DNA with exciting application potential.
