A Simpler Route To Multifunctional Nanocomposites

Viruses serve as biological templates for nanoscale heterostructures
Department: Science & Technology
Keywords: nanocomposites, viruses, nanoparticles, bacteriophage

Viruses can be used as biological templates for nanoscale heterostructures without the need for extensive genetic engineering, a group led by Raymond E. Schaak of Pennsylvania State University reports (Chem. Mater., DOI: 10.1021/cm900869u). Schaak and colleagues took advantage of nonspecific electrostatic interactions along the body of the M13 . . .
