Abstract

The semiconducting behavior of gold nanoparticle assemblies linked by DNA is independent of the length of the DNA linker over the range of 24 to 72 base pairs (see picture; n = 1-3). These studies indicate that the molecular recognition properties of DNA can be used to assemble nanoparticle-based materials without passivating them or destroying their discrete structural and electrical properties.
