In situ 2D-extraction of DNA wheels by 3D through-solution transport

Phys Chem Chem Phys. 2015 Dec 28;17(48):32122-5. doi: 10.1039/c5cp05765e.


Controlled transfer of DNA nanowheels from a hydrophilic to a hydrophobic surface was achieved by complexation of the nanowheels with a cationic lipid (2C12N(+)). 2D surface-assisted extraction, '2D-extraction', enabled structure-persistent transfer of DNA wheels, which could not be achieved by simple drop-casting.
