Fabrication of ordered nanostructures of sulfide nanocrystal assemblies over self-assembled genetically engineered P22 coat protein

Academic Article


  • Ordered ZnS and CdS nanocrystal assemblies have been synthesized by a facile bioinspired approach consisting of an initial self-assembly of engineered proteins into spherical biotemplates and a subsequent protein-directed nucleation and growth of ZnS and CdS nanocrystals symmetrically distributed over the self-assembled biotemplates. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
