Preparation of Sensors on Oligo- or Poly (Ethylene Glycol) Films on Silicon Surfaces

The Innovation

A method for covalent incorporation of ethynyl groups in monolayers deposited on silicon surfaces via Si-C bonds.

Competitive Edge

OEG-terminated monolayers prepared by this method are among the most protein-resistant and stable monolayers reported to date.

Targeted Market

The use of silicon based biosensors and microdevices including implantable microdevices for sensing and targeted delivery of imaging agents and pharmaceuticals.
